Set in the 1970's, the film attempts to capture the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing as it delves into the fierce rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

A new trailer for Ron Howard's Formula 1 biopic, Rush, has been released ahead of the movie's launch in September.

Set in the 1970's, the film attempts to capture the "sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing" as it delves into the fierce rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Staring Chris Hemsworth (as Hunt) and Daniel Brühl (as Lauda), the movie promises to highlight the "contrast between these two extraordinary characters" who "push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance."

Besides having an interesting back story, the film tries to be pretty authentic as it was made in Germany, Austria and the United Kingdom. While they're plenty of special effects, several real race cars were used during filming.
