Rush Leicester Square Premiere Report
Harder, Better, Faster, Lauda

03 September 2013  |  Written by Amar Vijay

If you happened to be anywhere near Leicester Square last night, you may have heard quite a lot of noise coming from London's premier premiere location. Some was from the fans, there to see Rush director Ron Howard and stars Daniel Bruhl (who plays Niki Lauda in the film) and Chris Hemsworth (James Hunt), but a lot of it was from the Formula 1 cars tearing round the block.

Current F1 drivers Sergio Perez and Jenson Button were the men in the not-so-London-friendly vehicles, wearing regular smart suits as well as their helmets. Joining them from the world of racing were Bernie Ecclestone, Jackie Stewart, David Coulthard, Niki Lauda himself and, um, David Hasselhoff.

Then there was the lovely Olivia Wilde, who also stars in the film, as well as Liam Hemsworth, Chris's little brother, and Elsa Pataky, Fast & Furious actress and Hemsworth The Older's other half.

You can see them all on the red carpet for yourself thanks to this handy picture gallery we have for you below, as well as the video report at the bottom, where the cast and director tell us a little bit more about the film. Look out for some fun interviews with Howard, Hemsworth and Bruhl both on the Empire Podcast and in video interview form soon.

September 13 is the UK release date for Rush. American cinemagoers, meanwhile, will have to wait until September 27 for their go around the Rush track.
