Rush Movie Trailer Starring Chris Hemsworth

Rush Trailer: Chris Hemsworth Lives Life in the Fast Lane

"The closer you are to death, the more alive you feel," proclaims Chris Hemsworth in the trailer for Rush. He stars as James Hunt, the dashing English racer who ruled the high-speed European track in the 1970s. Ron Howard is behind the camera depicting Hunt's rivalry with Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl), the Austrian driver whose run in the 1976 German Grand Prix resulted in a coma, while Hunt took the gold home. The story doesn't end there — Lauda recovers, his crash only sparking the competition between Hunt and himself. Olivia Wilde also stars as Hunt's wife.

Am I the only one with goosebumps? Howard is a reliably good director, and it appears he's giving the delicate story a tender and honest tone. I'm also impressed with Hemsworth, and it's refreshing to see him out of the Thor armour. The movie opens in October, and until then, watch the trailer after the jump.
