Photo Gallery: Exclusive Shots from the Set of Rush

Submitted by on May 29, 2012

Rush Filming

Ron Howard’s Rush, which tells the tale of James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda’s (Daniel Brühl) championship battle during the 1976 Formula One season, recently wrapped filming in Snetterton, England. Howard and his team are heading into the editing suite to weave together the incredible story, and we have some behind-the-scenes shots to keep you entertained while they work.

The shots come from Andrew Kitson and were taken during the filming of the title decider between Hunt and Lauda, which took place on a sodden Fuji Speedway in Japan, in 1976.

From Howard’s tweets and the material that’s surfaced throughout filming, the team seem to have an inspiring passion for the material and their creative calling, and really seem to get what made Formula One so special in that period. They look to be crafting a great film and we can’t wait to see it!

Make sure to follow Ron Howard’s Twitter feed @RealRonHoward for up-to-the-minute behind the scenes direct from the man himself.
