Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde star in a new clip from Rush
Although he’s mainly associated with Thor, Chris Hemsworth has proven himself to be a very charismatic actor, even if the movie he’s in isn’t very good (see RED DAWN for example). So even though he can be seen as Thor again in November’s THOR: THE DARK WORLD, I’d say I’m more excited to see him in Ron Howard’s RUSH. Today we get a new clip from the film featuring him talking things over with Olivia Wilde, who’s not quite pulling off that British accent. Check it out below and see for yourself. RUSH stars Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara, Stephen Mangan, Christian McKay, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Jamie de Courcey, Pierfrancesco Favino and Natalie Dormer. The Ron Howard directed film races into theaters on September 27th.
RUSH official synopsis: RUSH stars Chris Hemsworth as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives. Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.
