Director Ron Howard is heading back to 1970s Formula 1 racing for Rush, and now the first trailer for the high-octane biopic has arrived, giving us a look at Chris Hemsworth as James Hunt and Daniel Bruhl as Niki Lauda.
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.
