Interview with Rush director Ron Howard

Rush depicts a full-throttle rivalry unlike any other. Ron Howard's upcoming F1 drama throws us into the real-life competition between ladies man James Hunt (Thor's Chris Hemsworth) and Nikki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl).

In Howard's words, the movie throws us into a time "when sex was safe, driving was dangerous and all bets were off." Watch the following interview, in which Howard discusses the making of Rush and what fascinated him about Hunt and Lauda's rivalry.

Rush is released on 13 September. Make like an F1 racer and speed over to the comments to share your favourite racing movies.
