Excellent film. I was interested as soon as I heard Ron Howard was making it, and completely sold when I saw that Niki Lauda approved of the result. Seeing it confirmed everything. Excellent and highly recommended!

Universal 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:
