Director: Ron Howard
Starring: Daniel Brühl, Chris Hemsworth, Olivia Wilde

FROST/NIXON’s director and scriptwriter, Ron Howard and Peter Morgan, now team up for a very different battle of wills: the intense rivalry between legendary Formula One drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

Hunt was very much the charismatic English playboy, Lauda the no-nonsense, straight-ahead Austrian. When leading the 1976 World Championship, Lauda suffered massive burns.in a horrific crash at the German Grand Prix, thereby apparently handing Hunt the series. But despite his injuries, Lauda made an extraordinary comeback to finish fourth two races later at Monza, and the Championship was decided just three nail-biting events later in Japan.

The stunning racing footage alone is worth the ticket price, and Hemsworth (AVENGERS ASSEMBLE) and Brühl (EVA) entertainingly and convincingly portray the two leads’ diametrically opposed lifestyles and characters.
