Two men, driven by speed, adrenaline and the will to win are at the heart of Ron Howard’s latest, Rush. The Formula 1 biopic follows the intense rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and the golden-haired British playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth).
The film takes place over the course of 1976 which saw Lauda endure a horrific crash at the German Grand Prix giving Hunt the opportunity to take the win. As Lauda struggles with his recovery, Hunt struggles with his own demons that come with life in the spotlight.
We got our first look at Rush back in April when the first trailer for Howard’s film landed online. Now we’re getting more focus on the rivalry of the racers in this second trailer.

Well here's one for the books... after Joss Whedon confirmed that he'd be introducing the mutant siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015's The Avengers, 20th Century Fox has moved to steal a march on Marvel Studios, with Bryan Singer revealing via Twitter that Quicksilver has been added the roster of X-Men: Days of Future Past, with Evan Peters (Kick-Ass, American Horror Story) cast in the role.
Having featured in both the X-Men and Avengers comic books, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch - the offspring of X-Men baddie Magneto - are the subject of a bizarre rights issue, whereby both Fox and Marvel Studios can use the characters as part of their respective worlds, although Marvel can't make reference to them being mutants (or Magento's kids) and Fox can't refer to them as part of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Considering the fact that X-Men: Days of Future Past »

Call it the Fast and Furious effect, but this new trailer for Ron Howard‘s Rush certainly seems far sexier and speedier than the last look we got at the fact-based racing tale. Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Brühl face off in the film as Formula 1 drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda, talented and celebrated drivers who became mired in one of sport’s greatest rivalries back in the seventies. While the first trailer made no bones about the drama of the film – Lauda was the victim of a horrific race crash that nearly claimed his life, burnt his body, and sent him into a coma, and he still came back to race Hunt – this new look is all fast cars, fast cuts, and even a glimpse of a couple of stars getting it on in the shower. The film also stars Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, Christian McKay, Julian Rhind-Tutt »

"There's a lie that all drivers tell themselves: death is something that happens to other people." This is the rationale that allows Formula 1 racers to crawl into cars that travel at impossible speeds on treacherous tracks explained by driver James Hunt in the latest trailer for Ron Howard's Rush. The sport drama based on a true story centers on the famous rivalry between Hunt and Niki Lauda, a rivalry that not only spurred them on to more and more risky maneuvers, but also saved one of them after a horrific and fiery crash. The Avengers' Chris Hemsworth stars as Hunt, an English driver known as well for his reputation with the ladies as for his skill on the track. Daniel Brühl, who memorably played the loathsome Frederick Zoller in Inglourious Basterds, plays the disciplined Austrian racer Lauda. And even in the brief trailer above you can get a »

A second domestic trailer for Rush has arrived in the U.S. where Nascar is tremendously popular and Formula 1 is not. This clip takes out, therefore, the entire detail of the true story that chronicles the 1970s rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and British driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). Instead, this one focuses on the speed of F1 racing and on Hemsworth and his sex appeal. Olivia Wilde is also looking hot in new 90-second spot as well as a steamy shower sex scene from the Ron Howard-directed racing pic. Peter Morgan wrote the script for the film which is more than »

Everyone, according to the latest tagline for Ron Howard’s look at Formula One racing in the era of James Hunt and Niki Lauda, is driven by something. In the case of Team Empire, it’s cake and the desperate need to stay one step ahead of Oscar the Office Mouse, the crafty, snack cake-stealing bastard. For the speed freaks in this movie, it’s the burning ambition to win. The new trailer is available over at Apple.Rush chronicles the 1970s rivalry between Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, swapping his hammer for putting the hammer down at the wheel of a racing vehicle) and Lauda (Daniel Bruhl).Though their rivalry was fierce, and led to real problems, Howard also emphasises the crazy intensity of the racing and the passion behind the scenes that inspired them to go that bit further. Not to mention the glitz and the glamour of the era. »
The Fast & Furious sextet features many kickass babes — including Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Gal Gadot, Eva Mendes, Gina Carano, and Mrs. Chris Hemsworth. But it also has a lot of women who just love hanging around cars — in the least amount of clothing possible. Here are our favorites from the first five films — and what we believe they are thinking.
“That girl must also shop at the ‘Britney Spears circa ’98′ outlet.”
“We don’t have thoughts, we’re just a pair of bare midriffs.”
“When was the last time my roots were touched up?”

This fall Ron Howard, who is no stranger to based-on-a-true-story movies ("Apollo 13," "A Beautiful Mind," "Frost/Nixon," "Splash" -- wait, no, not "Splash"), will once again tackle a true-life tale in "Rush," a film about the life of British Formula 1 racecar driver James Hunt (played by Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth). In the newest trailer, Hemsworth sets things up nicely: "There's a lie that all drivers tell themselves -- that death is something that happens to other people. That's how you find the courage to get in the car in the first place. But more powerful than fear itself is the will to win." Most of the movie is centered around Hunt's rivalry with Niki Lauda (played by Daniel Bruhl from "Inglourious Basterds"), an Australian racecar driver. And by the looks of things, it gets pretty heated, on and off the track. "Rush" has an exemplary creative team behind the scenes, »

“Death turns people on,” says Formula One racer James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). Olivia Wilde knows what he’s talking about, too. It has been a long time since we have had a good, serious racing movie – and who would have thought that director Ron Howard, of all people, would bring it to us? But with the third trailer for Howard’s racing drama Rush, hopes are pretty high.
Hemsworth is iconic English Formula One driver James Hunt, who heated up the racecourse in 1976 with his rivalry with Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Inglourious Basterd’s Daniel Bruhl). Along for the ride are Olivia Wilde and Alexander Maria Lara (The Reader). The script for Rush was written by Peter Morgan, the man behind The Queen and Howard’s last great film Frost/Nixon.

Where’s the best place to get updates on the next Marvel tentpole? Why, the Wall Street Journal, of course. Ray Stevenson, of Rome and Dexter fame, is reprising his role as Volstagg of the Warriors Three in Thor: The Dark World. It appears his role is beefed up in the sequel, and Asgard and the other realms are not as happy as they once were. Here’s what the big man had to say about the Alan Taylor helmed sequel.
What of Asgard and the 9 realms?
“In the first “Thor” Asgard had this tremendous peace among the 9 realms. They were riding at the heights. Everything is working and looking as it should be. In this one, the realms are being whipped up into various rebellions. There is a darker malignant force out there and we are in the process of engaging in long protracted skirmishes and battles.
