Video: Rush movie preview
“This is a racing movie. It is not Driven.” Those are the words of award-winning director Ron Howard about the film Rush, which goes on general release in October.
The film is the story of the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship, the epic James Hunt versus Niki Lauda battle. The clips that Motorsport Retro has seen show that Howard means what he says. The cars are real, owned by collectors, and driven as they should be – at 100%.
The recreations of the triumph and tragedy are beautifully handled, and we think that Rush will soon be mention with the same awe as Grand Pix, Le Mans and Senna by both racing fans and those that like a good movie. As soon as we can, we will drip feed you some more clips.
