Chris Hemsworth may be back as that hammer-wielding guy as shown in the recent Thor: The Dark World trailer. But, there’s another side of him coming even sooner that is sure to send hearts racing. Hemsworth stars in Ron Howard’s Rush as British Formula 1 racing legend James Hunt. The film chronicles the wicked rivalry between Hunt and Austrian racer Niki Lauda.
In a new behind-the-scenes video from Rush, Howard and Hemsworth talk about the need to impeccably capture on screen the inconceivable danger these drivers face so that the film reflects the reality of what is going on on the racetracks.
Previewed in the Rush trailer, the film also stars Olivia Wilde and Daniel Bruhl (in a career announcing turn as Lauda) and races into theaters in New York and Los Angeles on September 20, before going wide on September 27.
