People love watching movies about attractive people driving fast cars, as is demonstrated by the fact that Fast and Furious 6 exists. But the new trailer for Ron Howard’s Rush shows it might be possible to make a racing movie that has some actual substance to it:
The movie tell the story of the rivalry between English racer James Hunt and Austrian Niki Lauda, played by Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, respectively. It also stars Olivia Wilde with blond hair and a British accent, so that’s different.
Rush isn’t just about a couple of guys who can quickly shift from second to third gear while looking calm and collected. It’s about the will to win that drives these men to put their life on the line. But if that doesn’t convince you, just focus on the adrenaline-pumping hairpin turns, the fiery crashes, and that brief second of shower-sex.
