You can practically smell the exhaust from here… Ron Howard has been tuning up his upcoming race world biopic “Rush“, which premieres at TIFF later this week, and in case you’re not going to be in Toronto here’s enough footage to make you think you’ve already seen the movie.
Starring Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl (who will also be in Canada stumping for “The Fifth Estate“) and Olivia Wilde, the film tells the true story of the rivalry of drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, whose fuel-injected competitiveness followed them around the world on the race circuit, and had more than enough drama to make a cinematic re-telling worth shifting gears for. In the new clip below you can see the testy back and forth between the two racers, while a host featurettes will bring you up to speed on the history. After that are a brace of TV spots along with a bunch of new images.
After driving by the flag in Toronto, “Rush” will pit stop in theaters on September 27th.
