Even though Chris Hemsworth's Thor: The Dark World keeps getting so much attention, there's another very exciting movie of his coming out before he wields his mighty hammer. Ron Howard's Rush has the hot in demand actor playing real life charismatic Englishman James Hunt as a Formula 1 driver going up against rival Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl).
Hollywood is counting on all those racing fans along with the Hemsworth fans to pump up the box office on this biopic which hasn't hit it major marketing stride yet. I think they may be surprised as anyone who's ever gone to a racing event (Nascar) will attest; it's a very loyal bunch that go every week. Usually biopics aren't big for the studio execs either, but with Ron Howard Helming and that Aussie actor, it was easily something they couldn't refuse. I grew up very close to the racing circuit so this is one movie I'm very excited to see knowing that the Thor sequel will be just two months later making for a great ending to another great blockbuster movie year.
