A new trailer for Ron Howard’s Formula One racing biopic Rush has arrived online. The film, written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Peter Morgan, chronicles the story of two racers who were “rock stars of the race track”, according to director Ron Howard. The new trailer (embedded below) sets a different tone than previous trailers. Check it out below.
Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die. The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers, Thor) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.
Rush races into theaters on September 27th. The film also features Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer, Alexandra Maria Lara, and Pierfrancesco Favino. What do you think of the new trailer?
