Official Trailer For Ron Howard's Rush Revealed

Subscribe to Ron Howard alerts

The trailer for Ron Howard’s Rush has emerged online. The clip offers a tantalizing teaser into the fast living, fast driving, world of Formula 1 that the director is trying to portray.

The film focuses on the real-life Formula 1 battle that took place between Austrian Niki Lauda and the Englishman James Hunt for the Formula 1 World Title back in 1976. The battle between the pair was a fraught and fierce one in real life, a tale of immense will in the face of the dangers that their high speed sport threw of them, with Lauda in particular suffering a near-fatal crash at the mid-point of the season, having built up a sizable lead. We don’t want to spoil the ending, but you don’t have to click far to find out.

The film comes out on September 20th and features Chris Hemsworth as the good looking confident Englishman, and Daniel Bruhl as Niki Lauda, the battle-hardened champion. It has some hill to climb if it’s to be a success, with motor racing films more often than not ending up as failures. There are exceptions to the rule of course, not least the 2010 documentary Senna and Steve McQueen’s 1971 film Le Mars. However, lest we forget Sylvester Stallone’s terrible 2001 effort Driven and Tom Cruise’s Days Of Thunder. One would hope that Howard has enough wits about him as a director to ensure that Rush doesn’t end up in the latter pile. Check out the trailer below
