'Rush' - james hunt vs. niki lauda 1976 - first trailer

Really looking forward to this, though it has been getting a little bit of a slagging in some of the Motorsport circles (Even though it has not even been released yet). Mainly because i think it is being produced with American money and they're worried about it being glamorised for something that it wasn't.
I am a massive Hunt fan so it is a win for me, just wondering whether they will have anything about his time with Hesketh in there?????

The Americans have a good track record (intended) in this field with the excellent 1966 John Frankenheimer film Grand Prix. If anyone is unfamiliar with it you are in for a treat.

An excellent film, Racing as it should be.
Here's a wee bit of porn from way back when...

Yeah, awesome soundtrack. IIRC the actors in Grand Prix were filmed driving proper racing cars - not F1 but close - on the real circuits on the day of the actual GP: everything looked real because, as near as dammit, it was.
there was a big feature on it and an interview with Jim Garner in F1 Racing a while back - the actors were filmed driving F2 machinery iirc, mixed in with footage shot from cameras mounted to F1 machines in real races (eg. Spa was one of them - some of what you see on the screen is what was actually going on in that years race.)

TBH, I quite liked 'driven' with Stallone - a lot of it was bollox, but some of the race sequences were pretty good.
