Rush: exclusive look at Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl in Formula 1 epic

The stars team up to re-create the racing rivalry between charismatic Brit James Hunt and Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda

The 1970s rivalry between Formula 1 drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda is the focus of Rush, the new film from Oscar-winning director Ron Howard.


Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) stars as charismatic English playboy Hunt with Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the methodical, disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomised the contrast between the two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. 

Here’s an exclusive look at Hemsworth and Brühl in a new infostill for Rush.

Rush comes to UK cinemas on 13 September. Watch a trailer below.
