Rush (2013) Blu-ray

Posted December 3, 2013 10:01 PM by Webmaster

Universal 100thUniversal Studios Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray/DVD/UltraViolet combo pack release of director Ron Howard's Rush (2013), starring Chris Hemsworth, Daniel Brühl, Olivia Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara. The film tells the true story of freewheeling English Formula 1 racer James Hunt and his disciplined Austrian opponent Niki Lauda, and arrives on Blu-ray on January 28, 2014.

Synopsis: During the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, two drivers emerge as the best: gifted English playboy James Hunt (Hemsworth) and his methodical Austrian opponent, Niki Lauda (Brühl). As they mercilessly clash on and off the Grand Prix racetrack, the two drivers push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there's no shortcut to victory and no margin for error.

Rush is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Special features include:
  • Race for the Checkered Flag, The Making of Rush:

    • Peter Morgan on Writing Rush: A look at the work of the Oscar-nominated screenwriter (Last King of Scotland, The Queen) and how he creates screenplays known for exquisite drama, characters, authenticity and passion.
    • Finding James and Niki: Chris Hemsworth talks about researching his character using archival reports and footage, and Daniel Brühl reveals his real-life encounter with Niki Lauda as a guest on the Austrian driver's private jet.
    • The Light of Speed and Filming F1: Oscar-winning cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle discusses the intricacies of filming Rush and how he achieved the film's breathtaking race sequences with camera technology and skills never before possible.
    • Around the World in One Location: Ron Howard and the filmmaking team explain how they created the illusion of filming all over the world while shooting almost entirely in the UK.
    • Fashion and Styles of the '70s: The hair, the clothes and the colorful personalities of a glamorous decade shine as costume designer Julian Day and hair and make-up designer Fae Hammond take viewers back in time to the sexy '70s.

  • The Real Story of Rush:

    • Meeting James Hunt and Niki Lauda: Members of the cast and crew and intimate friends of James Hunt and Niki Lauda share their insights in a nuanced portrait of two complex men and their complicated relationship. This short documentary also includes a rare interview with Lauda himself.
    • F1 Take 1- F1 Racing and the F1 Car: Mechanics and pit crew from 1970s-era Formula 1 describe the intense rivalry, competition and camaraderie between the various racing teams of the time.
    • The Rock and Roll Circus: The glamorous F1 circuit of the '70s takes center stage in a look at the races, the music, the clothes and the lifestyle during a time "when sex was safe and driving was dangerous."

  • Ron Howard - A Director's Approach: A behind-the-scenes look at director Ron Howard and how his passion for filmmaking allows him to create extraordinary films time after time.

  • Deleted Scenes

Loved this in the theatre, and I can't wait to see it again. It's great to see that Ron Howard can still actually make a great movie. I was beginning to lose faith in him.

Wonder if they actually were able to show any footage from the era, Bernie is as tightwad as they come.
Missed this in the cinema but love F1 and have been looking forward to being able to watch this on Blu-ray, perhaps I'll enjoy the audio even more this way than I would have at the cinema. =D
