Trailer of the Day: RUSH STARRING CHRIS HEMSWORTH

Here is the Trailer of the Day and the first on the new Salty Popcorn – Rush Starring Chris Hemsworth (and many more :))

Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) 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. It should be noted that they never used any of the original Lauda crash footage.

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.

This looks like a damn fine high speed F1 film – it’s like a remake of Days of Thunder with faster cars and no Nicole Kidman 🙂 Can Chris Hemsworth do anything wrong? – he just goes from strength to strength and in this one he appears to have bulked way down but looks just as hot – does he have a team looking after that hair?

Releases later in the year! No exact dates scheduled for Australia yet but I am confident it will be September.
