Universal Pictures has released a batch of high-resolution images from director Ron Howard’s new film Rush.
The film takes place in the world of Formula One racing, and chronicles the 1970s rivalry between Austrian driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and British driver James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth)—primarily during the 1976 season. The pic has earned strong marks during its premiere screenings at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and I’m eager to see the film myself.
Hit the jump to take a look at the images. The film also stars Olivia Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara. Rush opens in theaters on September 27th.
