The second trailer for Ron Howard's Rush has raced online and it certainly has our pulses raising even higher than the first Rush trailer did. Chris Hemsworth stars as real life racer James Hunt, the uber charismatic 1970's Grand Prix driver who was driven to international success, largely due to his legendary rivalry with Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl).
Where Hunt was flashy and fast, Lauda was disciplined and driven. The two racers' clash put the sport on the map and stole the thunder emitted by America's NASCAR.
Oscar winner Howard directs from a script by Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon and The Queen). When an Oscar winner is directing from a script by an Oscar nominee with a pedigree like Morgan has, this story has to be given some serious credence. And with Hemsworth's stock rising after star-making turns in Thor and The Avengers, Rush could be the fall's first hit when it arrives September 20.
