"Rush" Races Towards Theaters

Hollywood

First trailer for Ron Howard's upcoming Hunt/Lauda bio-pic gives first glimpse at what promises to be one of the best racing flicks of all time.

Racing fans have been waiting for a proper motorsport film for a long time now. Awesomely corny though it was, Days of Thunder was ages ago. Le Mans was even deeper back in history. Senna was great, but in the end it was still a documentary. Talladega Nights was a rolling joke. Driven was a disappointment, and Cars was for kids. But Rush promises to be the film we’ve all been waiting for, dramatizing an epic rivalry that needs no dramatization: the battle between Niki Lauda and James Hunt for the 1976 Formula One World Championship.

Directed by the legendary Ron Howard and penned by "Frost/Nixon" writer, the film stars Chris Hemsworth (from "Thor") as Hunt and Daniel Bruhl ("Inglorious Basterds") as Lauda. The studio has just released the first trailer, so check it out and start counting until September when Rush hits theaters.
