New Trailer for Ron Howard’s RUSH Starring Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, and Olivia Wilde

     April 11, 2013


Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for director Ron Howard’s racing drama Rush.  The film takes place in the world of Formula 1 racing and chronicles the 1970s rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and British driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth).  This trailer plays much better than the previous U.K. trailer, as we get a better sense of the individual character struggles in addition to Howard’s impressive visuals.  The racing sequences certainly look to be intense, but the highlight of this trailer for me is hearing some of Hans Zimmer‘s fantastic-sounding score.  As Matt noted previously, the key to the film’s success will be whether we care about the characters, so here’s hoping Rush is more Apollo 13 than The Da Vinci Code.

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  The film also stars Olivia Wilde and opens on September 20th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Rush:

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 and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Niki 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.

    Great trailer. I hate Nacar and racing and all that, but this trailer has otten me to sill want to see this. Maybe be a possible Oscar nominee. Hope Hemsworth owns it.

      I don’t like Nascar or Formula 1 racing either, or any type of racing cars for that matter. However, if you are going to see this film, I recommend watching a documentary called Senna. It is an absolutely amazing documentary about a guy named Ayrton Senna who raced Formula 1…it might up your excitement level for this film.

      This is Formula 1, not NASCAR. NASCAR is stock cars and primarily only exists in the US and India for some reason. Formula 1 is this type of racing and mostly exists in Europe.

    Terrible line of script:

    “You are just who you are at this moment in time…”

    Um. What?
