Many racing fans - about $1,113,077 worth in USA and and an astounding $7,193,497 everywhere else - went to see the Senna documentary when it came out in 2011, including us. We thought it was a fantastic film and now, award winning director Ron Howard is at it again. He has announced that he is filming a new "Rush" movie inspired by the rivalry of former F1 drivers Niki Lauda and James Hunt during the 1970s. Both Lauda and Hunt have great stories, so the thought of combining both their lives in an action packed movie would be awesome.

For those who don’t know, Niki Lauda is an Austrian former Formula One racing driver and three-time F1 World Champion. At the Nurburgring in 1976, Lauda’s Ferrari swerved off the trackdue to a suspected rear suspension failure, hit an embankment, and rolled back into the path of Brett Lunger’s Surtees-Ford car. Lauda’s Ferrari burst into flames, and although he was conscious and able to stand immediately after the accident, he later lapsed into a coma. Six weeks later he was back on the track challenging Hunt for the world championship.

An official debut of Rush has been rumored for early 2013, so stay tuned!

Garnering world attention and awards and even million hits on YouTube, that’s what I foresee in this upcoming film. I feel the rush from that pictures, and I know there’s more if they’ll show us more teasers of trailers.

This will be a certified box-office film. The story is interesting just like the location of this film. It’s action-packed and I really can’t wait to watch that movie. Do they have videos or teaser? Maybe the pre-trailer preview will do.

Will this be an astonishing sci-fi movie, or will this be merely about racing?

I don’t know which to anticipate more: the stars or the cars.

I’ll be sure to watch this because of the cars themselves and for the convincing casts!
