New Rush Trailer Squeals In
Everyone's driven by something

Everyone, according to the latest tagline for Ron Howard’s look at Formula One racing in the era of James Hunt and Niki Lauda, is driven by something. In the case of Team Empire, it’s cake and the desperate need to stay one step ahead of Oscar the Office Mouse, the crafty, snack cake-stealing bastard. For the speed freaks in this movie, it’s the burning ambition to win. The new trailer is available over at Apple.

Rush chronicles the 1970s rivalry between Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, swapping his hammer for putting the hammer down at the wheel of a racing vehicle) and Lauda (Daniel Bruhl).

Though their rivalry was fierce, and led to real problems, Howard also emphasises the crazy intensity of the racing and the passion behind the scenes that inspired them to go that bit further. Not to mention the glitz and the glamour of the era. 

The new promo further convinces us that this has been shot beautifully and that the cast – which also includes Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, Christian McKay, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Jamie de Courcey and Natalie Dormer – is spot on.

Howard’s latest arrives in pole position on September 13.

RE: Silly trailer
THANK YOU! I said the exact same thing in the theaters when I saw the trailer. The entire film is in the trailer WHY!?!?!? Who's bright idea was this, thank you for sparing me my $13 ticket. I don't think Ron Howard was too happy about that. More
