    Ron Howard usually does good work with his previous productions.I’m excited and very pleased to look forward to it.

    also starring my favorite princess, margaery tyrell of highgarden (natalie dormer).

    A second trailer has been released, and it’s much tighter, much more coherent effort that the first:



    The second trailer is usually a bit more coherent – the first one is usually the marketing splash – and you definitely get a better sense of story from that one.


    @prisoner-monkeys Great add, thanks for the share.

    I also saw this as well. Ron Howard had a Q&A session on twitter about the movie.



    Now this makes it appealing!!! The first trailer had me very scheptical but this is head and shoulders above that! Can´t wait for it now!!! Looks awesome!

    Cannot wait for Sept ’13!…. saw both of these drivers race both before and after Lauda’s crash…. mid 70’s, Watkins Glen and Long Beach, California.


    Yeah, the second trailer was WAY better. Hard to believe it’s still 5 months away!

    I’m a member of the Guild of Motoring Writers and their latest bulletin included the following morsel of information:

    The Guild’s debut appearance in cinemas is set to take place on Friday, 13 September with the UK release of the action movie Rush. Directed by Ron Howard, the film tells the story of the battle for the 1976 Formula One World Championship between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

    Included in the filming was a re-creation of the Guild’s 1973 Driver of the Year Award presentation to James Hunt – he also received the accolade again in 1976. For the shoot, the Guild loaned the production team a replica of the Driver of the Year trophy.

    Prisoner Monkeys

    I saw a BBC documentary from 1996 that tells the story of that championship. Being a britishy documentary the focus was on Hunt, but the Lauda and Ferrari side was told too.


    I was wondering what a Prog-rock Band (Rush) had to do with F1 when i saw the title ;)

    Forgive me if I end up writing about my favourite band in an F1 forum, but interestingly, their (I think) sales breakthrough came in 1976 when people (well, not all of them, but quite a lot of them) loved 2112.

    Maybe something from that album (i.e its 20 minute first track) will end up being the theme song in Rush the movie. Maybe? Perhaps? (Edit: Actually having seen this, nevermind!)

    Anyway, I hope that the physical things are going to be realistic. The crash at the ring seems realistic enough, but I’m worried about how realistic the wheel-to-wheel racing or the landing of the airs would be. I’d like to see some Hollywood acting, but not unrealistic special effects (as for the realistic special effects and/or CGI, though, I hope to see them, not too many of them, but not too few, either. Airs in Germany would be great, but not somewhere after Curva Grande or Eau Rouge).
