Rush (2013)

Rush is a biographical action film directed by Ron Howard and written by Peter Morgan about the 1976 Formula One season and the rivalry between drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, and was released on September 13, 2013. It was shown at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and premiered in London on September 2, 2013.

Everything about this movie has been already discussed and analyzed in the F1 Database of The VALiens on at the following link Formula One Legends: 1976.

Everyone knows how the story went, Niki and James have been two terrific drivers, and in 1976 they demonstrated at the maximum level.

Two-time Academy Award winner Ron Howard’s latest big-screen project Rush recreates the merciless 1970s rivalry between F1 drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. Set against the sexy, glamorous and spectacular golden age of Formula 1 racing, the action-thriller stars Chris Hemsworth as the charismatic Englishman Hunt.

Ron Howard’s first-hand experience and knowledge of Formula 1 was sketchy, he admits himself, but he was hugely intrigued by the story Rush would tell about how the compelling Hunt-Lauda rivalry culminated in a 1976 championship season that many F1 fans regard as the best ever.

Hunt won that world championship for one point only. Would you?
