Rush Featurette with Ron Howard [VIDEO]

There has just been a Rush Featurette released with Ron Howard discussing his latest film project. If you haven't heard about “Rush,” which is about F1 racing and the incredible 1976 Formula One season, than you must have been living under a rock.  Gearheads and racing enthusiasts have been eagerly anticipating the movie's released.

The film is directed by Ron Howard, a Hollywood legend, and chronicles the intense rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt.  If the Rush Featurette is any indication the movie should have something for racing fans and even those who don't know what an F1 car looks like.

“Rush” is slated for release on September 20th, 2013 but you know how fickle Hollywood can be with release dates.  Let's just hope the movie's producers will release it in September.

Set against the golden age of Formula 1 racing, RUSH (directed by Academy Award winning Ron Howard A BEAUTIFUL MIND) portrays the fast-paced, action-packed and exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the sport has ever witnessed – James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth THOR) versus Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl INGLORIOUS BASTERDS) and their illustrious Formula 1 racing teams, McLaren versus Ferrari.

Baltimore Grand Prix a Boost for Baltimore

If most of you have not heard tomorrow Baltimore will be hosting it's first Grand Prix.  This a big event for our small city and it is supposed to bring in an estimated 70 million dollars.  There are many people unhappy with the event.  Rightfully so as this is causing huge traffic congestion downtown.  Consider though how much this means for a city like Baltimore.  Our reputation has been marred by such shows as “The Wire” and “Homicide.”  While there are many fans of these shows and I would include myself among fans of “The Wire” our city is plagued by many issues.  It all really comes down to Baltimore being a poor city.  Attracting a big racing event will mean continued commitment to keep money flowing into the city.  Tens of thousands are expected to come out for the Baltimore Grand Prix.  Baltimoreans should be excited!  I know it can be difficult with terrible traffic, which I experienced today.  Many communities are still without power.  Racing is the last thing on their mind.  Even if this is only around for 1-2 years, it will be a Boost for Baltimore.  I look forward to covering it this weekend for the people of Baltimore.
