Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl reawaken the rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda in the Ron Howard film.
A new clip for Ron Howard's new movie "Rush" has made its way out via Digital Spy, giving fans another look at one of the most fierce rivalries ever existing in F1. As seen in the newly-released video, Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, who portray real-life James Hunt and Niki Lauda respectively, take their rivalry to a press conference.
Asked whether or not he can cope with the pressure of the competition as he and his rival are aiming to be a world champion, British racer James tries to bring Niki down with his statement. However, the established champion from Austria does not show that he is weaker than his brass and daring competitor as he seems confident he will end up having the last laugh.
The movie, scripted by Peter Morgan, follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error.
Director Howard along with the cast members already threw the world premiere of their flick in London, England on September 2. On Monday evening, Chris was supported by his wife Elsa Pataky and brother Liam Hemsworth. Bruhl was joined on the red carpet by Olivia Wilde, who stars as Chris' wife in the pic.
Also featuring Natalie Dormer and Alexandra Maria Lara, "Rush" will race into theaters in the U.S. on September 20.
