Upcoming Movies: Rush!

There is always that thrill when a movie is based on a true story but that thrill can be multiplied exponentially when the movie is about Formula 1 racing. 

Rush is described as a biographical-action film set during the 1976 Formula One season. The plot focuses on the intense rivalry between the introverted Austrian Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl- Inglorious Basterds) and the British playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth-Thor). Their rivalry is considered to be one of the fiercest rivalries known in sports. 

The film is directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind). Howard has said that he wanted to direct a movie set in the 'restless, sexy seventies' - I think he forgot reckless.

Check out the trailer for Rush below! 

There is also much excitement at the films visual and sound effects which boasts to really crash and burn. Even the real Niki Lauda who saw the movie recently was shocked with the crash scenes. Lauda was in a crash and was trapped in his car for over a minute, he has sustained scars and burns on his face that are still visible to this day. James Hunt died of a heart attack in 1993, the movie premier was attended by his son, Tom Hunt.  

I'm also looking forward to the very fine female cast in the film which include Natalie Dormer (Margery Tyrell- Game of Thrones) and Olivia Wilde (Thirteen - House M.D).  :) 

Rush hits theaters on September 18 and is distributed by Captive Cinema
