Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon) teams once again with two-time Academy Award®-nominated writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen) on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless and legendary 1970s Formula 1 rivalry between gifted English playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth of The Avengers, Thor) and his disciplined Austrian opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl of Inglourious Basterds, The Bourne Ultimatum).

Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of the charismatic Hunt and the methodically brilliant Lauda, two of the greatest rivals the world of sports has ever witnessed. Taking us into their personal lives and clashes on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, 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.

Olivia Wilde (TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (The Reader) co-star in the epic action-drama as, respectively, Suzy Miller and Marlene Lauda, the loves of James and Niki’s lives who watched and feared as the men rocketed toward possible death.

Rush is produced by Andrew Eaton (A Mighty Heart, The Killer Inside Me), Eric Fellner (Les Misérables, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Brian Oliver (Black Swan, The Ides of March), Morgan, Oscar® winner Brian Grazer (Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind) and Howard. The film was co-financed by Cross Creek Pictures and Exclusive Media, and produced in association with Revolution Films and Imagine Entertainment.

Executive producers for the film are Guy East (The Woman in Black, The Ides of March), Nigel Sinclair (The Ides of March, End of Watch), Tobin Armbrust (End of Watch, The Woman in Black), Tim Bevan (Les Misérables, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Tyler Thompson (Black Swan, The Woman in Black) and Todd Hallowell (Apollo 13, Frost/Nixon). Universal Pictures distributes the film in the United States.

Rush was shot on location in the U.K., Germany and Austria.
