Ron Howard's Rush was to be the first of a wave of motorsports films, a turning point that would make regular Americans finally love F1. It was an enjoyable flick, but it didn't manage to move many non-F1 junkies into theaters and it wasn't quite nerdy enough for hardcore fans. Nerds rejoice! Weekend Of A Champion is…
Like many of you, I was despondent to learn that Ron Howard's superb RUSH isn't exactly lighting up the box office like its roaring Formula One cars light up their tires.

(Some of us aren't of legal R-rated movie watching yet, but it's ok, we know the guy at the ticket window. Davey G.…
James Hunt is a man who is remembered for his passions. He is revered for his competitive spirit, his immense skill behind the wheel, his devil-may-care attitude, and his hard-partying, womanizing ways away from the track (and sometimes right before a race.) But Hunt also had a passion for social justice that isn’t…

RUSH, Ron Howard's new film about Formula One in the 1970s, might be one of the most important automotive movies of all time. But why is that? And what's it about? And what is Formula One? And why does Daniel Brühl look so pissed off? Before you go see it, this is RUSH, explained.
In just three weeks, Ron Howard's Formula One epic RUSH will hit theaters and bring the legendary rivalry between drivers Niki Lauda and James Hunt to the big screen. It's going to be amazing. How do we know? The early reviews say so.
The RUSH premiere in London yesterday was never going to be the usual red carpet parade of a normal film debut, but it went from good to fantastic when two proper McLaren F1 cars arrived.

The Rush trailer? Good stuff. The film? Even better. I saw it at a screening in New York on Wednesday. It was the final cut of the film, and trust me, you have reason to be excited about it. I think it's the best racing movie, and not just because of the car porn. They all have that in spades. No, this is about the…
Even more giddy goosebumps than the first trailer.
