Scheduled for theatrical release this September, Rush stars Hemsworth (The Avengers, The Cabin in the Woods) as race car driver James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as his rival Niki Lauda.
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 James Hunt (Hemsworth) and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Niki Lauda (Brühl). 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.
Rush is directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard and written by Academy Award nominee Peter Morgan. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Daniel Brühl and Natalie Dormer and is scheduled for theatrical release on September 20th, 2013.
