"Rush" movie quotes follow the fast-paced action in the film based on the true story of a Formula One racing rivalry. Ron Howard directed the film and co-produced it with Brian Grazer using a screenplay by Peter Morgan. "Rush" first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival before it was released in the United States on September 27, 2013.

"Rush" tells the story of the 1976 Formula One racing season, specifically the rivalry between two top drivers, James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl). James is a favorite among fans, especially those of the female variety, but when Niki breaks into the spotlight with his success on the track, a fierce rivalry emerges.

The two gather for a race at the German Grand Prix when a horrible accident leaves Niki near death. Niki is badly burned and while he recovers, James jumps back into the winners circle and the spotlight. Niki however does not give up and soon returns to the track to compete against James for the top prize, the World Championship.

If "Rush" isn't quite your speed, there are many other movies in theaters at the same time such as "Prisoners,", "Enough Said," "The Family," "Riddick," "The World's End," "Getaway," "Drinking Buddies," "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones," "Paranoia," "Kick-Ass 2," "We're the Millers, and "Elysium".
