Watch: Get In The Driver's Seat With 4 Clips & Lots Of New Pics From Ron Howard's 'Rush'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist September 13, 2013 at 5:00PM

A movie about car racing featuring Thor and that guy from one of the 'Bourne' movies, directed by the dude whose last few movies were "The Dilemma," "Angels & Demons" and "Frost/Nixon"? No thanks, right? Well, the good news is that Ron Howard's "Rush," which premiered at TIFF last week (our review), is flat out entertaining. It's a sports biopic that doesn't just deal in clichés, but puts forth two strong, flawed personalities and tells their story. It's one that's worth putting on your watch list in a relatively lean month of movies, and a few clips are here to encourage you to do just that.

Rush,

A movie about car racing featuring Thor and that guy from one of the 'Bourne' movies, directed by the dude whose last few movies were "The Dilemma," "Angels & Demons" and "Frost/Nixon"? No thanks, right? Well, the good news is that Ron Howard's "Rush," which premiered at TIFF last week (our review), is flat out entertaining. It's a sports biopic that doesn't just deal in clichés, but puts forth two strong, flawed personalities and tells their story. It's one that's worth putting on your watch list in a relatively lean month of movies, and a few clips are here to encourage you to do just that.

Starring Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl, the film tells the tale of James Hunt and Niki Lauda, rival drivers who pushed each other to the limit personally and professionally. The scenes below might be slightly spoiler-y, but they also show the pair's testy relationship on and off the track, as well as the risks they faced, particularly in conditions where death was a very real outcome.

Shifting lanes into theaters on September 27th, check out the four clips below along with a bunch of new pictures.
