“I’ve surfed a couple of times where I’ve been pinned under a reef and I’m right at the end of my breath, and there’s nothing else you want to see more than the surface,” Hemsworth said. Talking about the Formula one track, he said: “It’s the near misses that you don’t see when you’re walking down the street, then later you think, ‘S**t, that bus was two inches away from hitting me.”
Directed by Ron Howard, Rush is a biopic based on the 1976 Formula One season and the rivalry between Hunt and Niki Lauda.

The movie also features actors Daniel Bruhl and Olivia Wilde.
