Out on BLU-RAY, DVD & VOD – January 27th 2014
STUDIOCANAL are thrilled to announce that the number one box office smash RUSH is racing to Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms this January. Directed by Ron Howard (Apollo 13, The Da Vinci Code) and starring Chris Hemsworth (Thor, Snow White & The Huntsman), Daniel Brühl (Inglourious Basterds, The Fifth Estate), Olivia Wilde (Cowboys & Aliens, TRON: Legacy) and Alexandra Maria Lara (Control), RUSH has been met with universal acclaim and is the film to own in 2014.
Set against the sexy, glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing in the 1970s, RUSH is based on the true story of one of competitive sport’s great rivalries as the charismatic English driver James Hunt (Hemsworth) competes against the methodical and brilliant Niki Lauda (Brühl) to be top dog in a world where one wrong decision can ultimately lead to death. Focusing on the astonishing and now legendary 1976 Formula 1 season, RUSH throws the two drivers’ personal styles into stark relief as both put their all into winning in a world that doesn’t allow for margins of error.
Visually stunning, hugely entertainingly and almost unbearably tense, RUSH is Ron Howard’s latest masterpiece and a blistering thriller in its own right regardless irrespective of an interest in motor sports. So fasten your seatbelt, brace for the green light and get ready to experience a RUSH like no other.
