When Chris Hemsworth isn’t playing an Avenger, he’s playing a Formula 1 racing driver in his new flick RUSH. Director Ron Howard brings the true story of the 1970s rivalry between racers James Hunt and Niki Lauda. Take a peek at the new trailer and movie poster.Luckily for Hemsworth, he didn’t have to cut his golden locks to play the English racing driver and Formula 1 world champion. The other familiar face is Olivia Wilde as his love interest.
Besides the 70s setting, Ron Howard gives it a very washed out look that mimics video quality of that era. Aside from watching the gorgeous Chris Hemsworth in a different sort of performance, the flick may be far from mainstream with perhaps racing fans being attracted to RUSH when it opens September 20, 2013.

More about RUSH:
Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on this spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.
Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, Rush 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. If you make one mistake, you die.
Also starring Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader), Rush is produced by Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart), Howard, Academy Award® winner Brian Grazer (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind), Eric Fellner (Senna, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Morgan and Brian Oliver (Black Swan) and executive produced by Cross Creek Pictures, Exclusive Media, Todd Hallowell and Tim Bevan. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in North America.
RUSH was shot on location in the U.K., Germany and Austria. www.rushmovie.com
