November too long of a wait to get your Hemsworth brother fix?
Never fear: Liam’s brother Chris will be in theaters this September with Ron Howard’s Rush, the true story of two great rivals: English playboy James Hunt (Hemsworth) and his methodical opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). The 1970s-set picture focuses on the competitive and elite world of Formula One racing, with a script by heavyweight Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen).
“People ask what has Rush been like and I say, from a filmmaking standpoint, it’s been kind of like a cross between Apollo 13 and Backdraft,” Howard previously told EW. “In the case of Apollo 13, that’s for the complexity and the authenticity and the intent to capture an era and an endeavor that blends technology, action and danger.”
Check out the trailer – which, yes, does feature plenty of shots of Hemswoth without the helmet on – below:
Rush, which also stars Olivia Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara, opens September 27.
