Academy Award winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind) teams once again with Academy Award nominated writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen) for a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between two legendary race car drivers. Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) stars as charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl as 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. 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. Also starring Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader). Official Web Site
