The first official images from Ron Howard’s Rush have debuted over at the movie’s website, showing off the fast cars and 70s style of this look at the rivalry between F1 drivers James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Nikki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl).
Hunt was a dashing playboy with a wild social life, whose exploits off the track filled more column inches than what he did while racing. Lauda meanwhile was a quieter figure, but still an amazing and driven racer. Their rivalry became legend both on and off the Grand Prix circuit.
We’ll have to wait a while to see the film though, which also stars Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer and Alexandra Maria Lara, as it’s not due for release until September 2013.
