The first pictures from Rush have emerged showing Star Trek XI‘s Chris Hemsworth as racing legend James Hunt.
Rush is the story of a rivalry between James Hunt (Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) for Formula One circuit dominance in the 1970s.
The British Hunt was a Formula One World Driver’s Champion once (1976), with ten Grand Prix wins between 1973 and 1979, beginning with the 1975 Dutch Grand Prix and ending with the 1977 Japanese Grand Prix. Overall champion for the season is based on Grand Prix results.
Austrian Lauda had three championships under his belt (1975, 1977, 1984) with twenty-five Grand Prix wins from 1971-1985 beginning with the 1974 Spanish Grand Prix and the 1985 Dutch Grand Prix.
Rush will release next year.
