With so much attention being paid to the summer movie releases, it can be easy to overlook some of the great films being released later in the year. Academy Award winning director Ron Howard is bringing us his next great piece of work. Based on a true story, Rush, tells the incredible tale of Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda and their infamous rivalry.
This rivalry almost took Lauda’s life. But Lauda recovered and came back to challenge Hunt in the 1976 world championship. This is a star studded film that features Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as Niki Lauda. The cast is rounded out with Olivia Wilde playing the leading lady. Look for Rush to make it’s North American debut on September 20th.
