People ask what has Rush been like and I say, from a filmmaking standpoint, it’s been kind of like a cross between Apollo 13 and Backdraft. In the case of Apollo 13, that’s for the complexity and the authenticity and the intent to capture an era and an endeavor that blends technology, action and danger.”Check out the trailer which turns the focus primarily on Hunt along with the inclusion of a Jay-Z and Kanye West tune.
