The first poster for Ron Howard's Rush keeps it simple

We haven't heard much from Ron Howard's next, RUSH.

The first poster from the film has come our way and it's incredibly simple. Now I must tell you, this is only the sales art that is for the Cannes Film Festival. Even if this happens to make it to the "first official" stage, I wouldn't mind. Often simple racing stripes are better than floating heads and bad Photoshop.

RUSH was written by Peter Morgan (THE QUEEN) and stars Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Bruhl, and Oliva Wilde. Check out the poster and the synopsis below.

Synopsis: Set against the 1970's golden age of Formula 1 racing, "Rush" portrays the fast-paced and exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivalries the sport has ever witnessed – that of James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and their illustrious Formula 1 racing teams, McLaren and Ferrari. A privileged, charismatic and handsome English playboy, Hunt could not be more different from his reserved and methodical opponent, Austrian born Lauda. "Rush" follows their personal lives both on and off the track and charts their rivalry from its inception in Formula 3. Here they competed viciously against each other until Lauda's business acumen and surgeon like precision behind the wheel propelled him all the way to Formula 1; eventually landing him the number one spot at Ferrari. However it was not long before rambunctious golden boy Hunt fought his way into Formula 1, and into the hearts of a nation, dramatically seizing the championship from Lauda and proving to the critics, and more importantly himself, that there was real substance beneath the stylish exterior.

Extra Tidbit: Happy to see Daniel Brühl getting a role in a Howard film. He was a great creepy little shit in INGLORIOUS BASTERDS.
