New trailer for Rush arrives online: watch now

Ron Howard's racing biopic Rush has released a new trailer online, and its blend of fast cars and playboy drivers serves up a surefire way to get the old adrenaline pumping...

Chris Hemsworth stars as British F1 driver James Hunt, who finds his dominance threatened by the emergence of Daniel Brühl's methodically brilliant Niki Lauda.

This new trailer is all about the racing scenes, and in terms of blood, thunder and excitement, it certainly doesn't disappoint.

Take a look at the new trailer, below:

There will be plenty of attention afforded to the off-track lifestyle of both men, but it's reassuring to see that Howard seems to have got the focus and intensity of the race scenes just right. Promising stuff…

Co-starring Olivia Wilde, Natalie Dormer and Patrick Baladi, Rush will open in the US on 20 September 2013, with a UK date to be confirmed.
