Take a behind the scenes look at Ron Howard in a Rush

1 min read

Formula One may be the sport of choice for people who can afford to live extravagantly, but it’s still popular all over the world. There have been attempts in the past to bring it onto the big screen, with the only notable version being a cheesy Sylvester Stallone starring vehicle that was obsessed with humming and riding over coins.

But at least director Ron Howard has been hard at work on his F1 tale, which takes place in the more intense 1970s period of the growing sport.


Starring Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, Rush stars the two as real world racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda respectively, as the two rivals compete to see who’s the best on and off the track.

So far, the golden age of F1 driving looks beautifully authentic, with the cars, sets and wardrobe perfectly reflecting that period in time. See for yourself in the video below.

Rush also stars Olivia Wilde and Alexandria Maria Lara, and is due for release sometime in 2013.
