Rush races onto Blu-ray

Director Ron Howard’s Formula One movie, Rush, starring Chris Hemsworth, will be racing on to Blu-ray on January 27th.

This adrenaline pumping movie is based on the exhilarating true story of the 1976 Formula One World Championship. The biopic depicts the arch rivalry between two racing drivers, hedonistic British playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and the cool and calculating Austrian Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) as they square up to seize the world title.

The cinematography in this movie has already been tipped by critics for an Oscar, and we are pretty excited to see how the Blu-ray captures the whirlwind races and death-defying turns in a vivid 1080p frame. The special features include an interview with the Oscar winning cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle, revealing how he incorporated footage from the 1976 race into the film, and the way he filmed sequences by fitting cameras in the most unlikely of places, including underneath the foot pedals and inside the driver’s helmets. There’s also a director’s commentary and deleted scenes too.
