Other than a few notable exceptions, racing movies are pretty much all total crap. Sylvester Stallone's Driven actually made me stop and reconsider all my life choices. But Ron Howard is coming to the rescue with RUSH, and the trailer is simply amazing.
RUSH is centered around the 1976 Formula One season and the rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt, as well as Lauda's comeback from his near fatal crash.
Yes, there appears to be some gratuitous crashing, but that's expected and will keep the non-F1 fans engrossed. There also looks to be some amazing cinematography. And car porn.
Oh the car porn.
There are Lotus 77s, Ferrari 312s, McLaren M23s, Penske PC3s, and I'm pretty sure I caught a glimpse of a Tyrrell P34 6-wheeler.
Basically, I haven't been this excited for a movie to come out since The Simpsons' Movie, and this trailer is already better than that entire film. Color me really freaking stoked.
RUSH is set to be released September 20, 2013.
