Though there will be no talking snails in this racing movie, you can definitely expect plenty of trash talking between Formula 1 race car champions James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki "The Rat" Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) in director Ron Howard's latest effort "Rush," which you can now check out a couple of brand-new TV spots.
Howard has reunited with "Frost/Nixon" scribe Peter Morgan to tell the true story of two legendary drivers who lit up the raceways throughout the 70's. And oh boy, they couldn't have been more different: British champion James Hunt was a natural-born speedster, living the good life as a hotshot playboy who loved fast cars and faster women, while his Austrian racing rival Niki Lauda studied tracks, worked on engines and improved his racing skills to become the best of the best.
The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Bruhl as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. 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 Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, 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. If you make one mistake, you die.
