Oscar-winning director Ron Howard‘s latest film ‘Rush‘ has just released a trailer and it looks great!  The film is centered around the legendary Formula 1 rivalry between drivers James Hunt and Nik Lauda during the 1976 season.  A slimmed down from ‘ThorChris Hemsworth plays James Hunt while Daniel Bruhl plays his bitter racing rival Niki Lauda.  The cast is rounded out by Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer, and Christian McKay.

This most recent trailer tries to show Hemsworth’s transformation from playboy racer to someone who wants to compete against the best and be a serious athlete.  Besides Howard as director, the movie was written by Oscar-winning screenwriter Peter Morgan of ‘The Queen‘ and ‘Frost/Nixon‘ so it certainly has the pedigree to be a classic.

Rush‘ is slated for release September 27, 2013, here is the latest trailer:

The Movie Don verdict?  Lots of ’70’s vibe, great period costumes, great racing scenes, and perhaps the best Formula 1 movie since Steve McQueen‘s ‘Le Mans‘. Looks great, can’t wait!
