Rush Synopsis
Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Frost/Nixon), teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon, The Queen), on Rush, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

The epic action-thriller stars Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.

Set against the sexy, glamorous and spectacular golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed—handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, 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. If you make one mistake, you die.

Nicholl and Knoxville worked together on the set of Fun Size and immediately built some rapport. By the time they started shooting Bad Grandpa, they come across like true partners in crime, whether those antics involve stealing groceries, trying to pick up women, or engaging in female beauty pageants.

SAG Award Nominations Throw Weight Behind 12 Years A Slave, The Butler SAG Award Nominations Throw Weight Behind 12 Years A Slave, The Butler
SAG isn’t always right. Last year, the group accurately predicted that Ben Affleck’s Argo would have a big night at the Oscars. But the year prior, SAG went with The Help over the eventual Best Picture Oscar winner, The Artist.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 Easily Dominates Friday Box Office Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 Easily Dominates Friday Box Office
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 may not match the jangly comic insanity of the original film released in 2009, but it had an ace in the hole no matter what: families with nothing else to see at the movies. According to the early numbers at The Hollywood Reporter Cloudy 2 was an easy leader at the box office on Friday, making $9.3 million and setting a course for a $35 million opening.

6 Sports Movies That Are Even Better Than Their Sports 6 Sports Movies That Are Even Better Than Their Sports
There are great sports movies that capitalize on a national love of the sport or a very famous story to earn their chills-- think of 2004's Miracle, or Rudy, or the endless nostalgia of Field of Dreams. But there are some that have an extra power to sweep up the people who have never heard of the sport in question, or who might not even think they care about sports at all until they wind up jumping out of their seats and fist-pumping in the end

Oscar Eye: Awards Season Narratives And What They Mean For 12 Years A Slave And Gravity Oscar Eye: Awards Season Narratives And What They Mean For 12 Years A Slave And Gravity
Let's talk about the word "narrative." It pops up in Oscar campaigns constantly, and often can mean essentially whatever the pundit in question wants, a way for them to tell themselves-- and hopefully those listening-- a story about why a certain film has an edge. The narrative of Argo's Best Picture win was based around Ben Affleck's Best Director snub, with a healthy side serving of Hollywood's own self-regard in rewarding a story about how a fake movie saved lives

Fall Movie Preview: The Profit vs. Prestige Venn Diagram Fall Movie Preview: The Profit vs. Prestige Venn Diagram
Welcome to fall movie season, where it's all about awards bait if you look in one direction (hello, August: Osage County!) and all about oddball blockbusters if you look in another (happy to see you, Riddick). Like any other time for movie releases, autumn is all about what you make of it, whether that's catching the three-hour French drama about lesbians or counting down the days until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. But if you want an advance look at which films are begging for awards and which are best paired with a giant tub of popcorn, look no further

"There's a lie that all drivers tell themselves: death is something that happens to other people." This is the rationale that allows Formula 1 racers to crawl into cars that travel at impossible speeds on treacherous tracks explained by driver James Hunt in the latest trailer for Ron Howard's Rush.

Chris Hemsworth tries a British accent on for size in a non-Thor role as James Hunt, the Formula One racing driver whose rivalry with Austrian Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) makes up the core of the film. The injury you see midway through the trailer was a real accident at the 1976 German Grand Prix, which left Lauda with extensive facial scarring and took away much of his right ear

Based on the incredible story of Formula 1 racer Niki Lauda, the drama penned by the Academy Award nominated scribe of Frost/Nixon, Peter Morgan, fittingly focuses on the champion's comeback following a horrific crash in 1976, as well as his rivalry and friendship with the flashy James Hunt. Daniel Bruhl, who played the Nazi war hero Fredrick Zoller in Inglourious Basterds, stars as Lauda, while the leading man of the hour Chris Hemsworth tackles the role of Hunt the Shunt.

It would seem that Chris Hemsworth has grown quite accustom to wearing his hair long. While the next time we see him - in next month's Cabin in the Woods - the actor will be sporting a fashionable buzz cut, the actor best known to audiences as Thor will be sporting long locks in both Joss Whedon's The Avengers and this summer's Snow White and the Huntsman.

While Ron Howard's adaptation of The Dark Tower may not be dead, it still may be awhile before it gets off the ground and starts production. The most recent report featured the filmmaker saying that a March 2012 start date for the project is "still moving quickly for something of [Dark Tower's] scale." Howard, however, has never been one to sit on his hands, and now it seems as though he has found a project to do in the interim.
