Another photo shows Hemsworth and Bruhl sitting in each of their cars, getting ready to kick off the race. There is additionally an image that sees a car reaching the finish line of the race. However, it is unclear whether the car belongs to Hemsworth or Bruhl.

Hemsworth stars as charismatic Englishman James Hunt, while Bruhl tackles the part of disciplined Austrian perfectionist Nikki Lauda in "Rush". Hunt and Lauda's clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.

If you make one mistake, you die.

To arrive in the U.S. cinemas on September 20, 2013, the movie is directed by two-time Oscar winner Ron Howard with Peter Morgan penning the script. It also stars , and Alexandra Maria Lara.
