Hemsworth Speeds Up Heart Rates In 'Rush'

The new trailer for Chris Hemsworth's upcoming film Rush features fast cars and a shirtless scene with the Thor actor ...and that's just in the first 30-seconds.

Directed by Ron Howard, Rush tells the story of real-life Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) and the 1976 crash that almost claimed his life. Mere weeks after the accident, he got behind the wheel to challenge his rival, James Hunt (Hemsworth).

"People ask what has Rush been like and I say, from a filmmaking standpoint, it's been kind of like a cross between Apollo 13 and Backdraft,” Howard told Entertainment Weekly. "In the case of Apollo 13, that's for the complexity and the authenticity and the intent to capture an era and an endeavor that blends technology, action and danger."

The film hits theaters Sept. 27, 2013. Will you be rushing to the theater to see it?
