New domestic trailer for Ron Howard's formula one racing movie Rush with Chris Hemsworth, Olivia Wilde, and Daniel Bruhl

Last week we saw the first international trailer for Ron Howard's upcoming formula one racing biopic, RUSH, and now we have a finely chopped domestic trailer to accompany it. Whereas the international trailer had a more "action-y" feel to it, this new one capitalizes on the dramatic elements mixed with some rubber-burning tension. The film stars Chris Hemsworth as James Hunt, a playboy-esque racer who competed fiercely with fellow racer Niki Lauda (INGORIOUS BASTERDS' Daniel Bruhl) in the late '70's. Olivia Wilde stars as Hemsworth's wife, while Natalie Dormer stars as Bruhl's.

Here's the synopsis:

A biography of Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda and the 1976 crash that almost claimed his life. Mere weeks after the accident, he got behind the wheel to challenge his rival, James Hunt.

I'm actually really excited for this. We haven't had a good racing movie in a long time and in Howard's more than capable hands this is sure to be a top tier entry in the genre. It's nice to see Hemsworth outside of his Asgardian cape and Bruhl is an impressive actor to boot. Olivia Wilde is...just smoking hot, so there's that. Visually, this looks like Howard went out of his way to capture some really sweet images and having another Hans Zimmer race car score (he also did Tony Scott's DAYS OF THUNDER) is icing on the cake.

Below are some new stills from the film, as well as a track from Zimmer's score for the pic. RUSH is slated to cross the finish line on September 20, 2013.
