Rush, Ron Howard's big-screen treatment of the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship battle between Nikki Lauda and James Hunt the year of Lauda's near-fatal crash, is 13 months away. In the meantime, the production has released four stills from filming, revealing the on-camera looks of Daniel Brühl as Lauda and Chris Hemsworth as Hunt.

The screenplay was penned by Peter Morgan, the Academy Award nominated writer of films like Frost/Nixon and The Last King of Scotland, the film was shot in the UK, Germany and Austria, it will be released on September 20, 2013 and it has an official site – although there's not much on it yet save for those stills.

It's a treat just looking at the photos, and in addition to our gallery there are many more at the Facebook link. If you scroll down you'll find a video of Ron Howard discussing the film during production. We'd be lying if we said we didn't we have high hopes for this.
