Universal has released yet another trailer for Ron Howard’s 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). This latest trailer turns the focus primarily on Hunt and his trajectory from playboy race car driver to serious competitor, and it looks like a compelling arc since it’s created through his conflict with Lauda. It’s easy to suss out almost the entire story arc from what we’ve seen in all the trailers so far, but the flick could still be an exciting ride when it opens this fall thanks to the performances and the racing scenes.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Olivia Wilde. Rush opens September 27th.
