This Austrian blogger is of course especially keen to see the German premiere of RUSH, Ron Howard’s biopic about Austrian racing legend Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). The film shows how Lauda almost gets burned to death in his quest against his nemesis, the Brit James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth). Howard is a petrol head, as we could witness in BBC‘s Topgear. And Brühl is a master actor, we already praised him inthis blog, he really looks the part, and he sounds it too, we hear. For us Austrians, Niki Lauda is omnipresent, an icon, someone we’ve grown up with. In half an hour the press screening starts. Can’t wait!
