Chris Hemsworth as Racing Legend James Hunt - First Look!

Chris Hemsworth gets into character on the set of his latest movie, Rush, on Thursday (March 8) in London, England.

The 28-year-old actor takes on the role of racing legend James Hunt in the Ron Howard-directed action thriller.

Here’s the film’s synopsis: Set against the sexy, glamorous and spectacular golden age of Formula 1 racing, Rush portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed – handsome English playboy James Hunt (Hemsworth) and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl).

Following their personal lives on and off the track, Rush follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.
