Based on the trailer alone, I say Rush is nominated for Editing, Sound, and Sound Editing. Other nominations depend on the competition, but those three categories seem like locks.
Maybe cinematography. Depending on the competition, of course, but Anthony Dod Mantle has a very unique cinematic eye and the pictures in this trailer look very cool. … As cool as the first sounds of Hans Zimmers score sound like, by the way, which can be heard in it as well. But those predictions go too far and you’re right – the catogories you mentioned are very typical for a movie like this.
This trailer was sort of a surprise. It looks much better filmed than I have imagined. I think it will make a lot of success at the UK and this could head it to the awards season depending on the reviews.
Which biopics do you think have the highest failure possibility?
- Grace of Monaco
- Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom
- Saving Mr. Banks
I remember that race year very well. I was rooting for Lauda all the way. I couldn’t stand James Hunt. This movie has the potential to give it all: rivalry, excellence, arrogance, death, speed, horrendous crashes, scorching fires… and it all ends in the rain. You couldn’t write it. I hope Ron Howard races this one all the way to the checkered flag.
It certainly looks very exciting. Perhaps the most exciting movie Ron Howard has ever made. I hope it contains some anger and real aggression. Howard is a very kind gentleman and he believes sincerely in decency and goodness. And that virtue has all too often hampered his films. Here, I get the feeling that he has put the foot down and revved it up.
I didn’t know James Hunt, but I heard Niki Lauda a thousand times speak, so I can say, Daniel Brühl almost exactly sounds like him. That’s good. The trailer looks fantastic, If the actors (Hemsworth, Brühl, Wilde and Alexandra Maria Lara) gave a good/great performance, this could be a Best Picture candidate. It will be a darling in Europe(because of Formula 1) for sure.
Looks like this years Argo.
The bits with Chris Hemsworth piss me off.
I’ll see anything Anthony Dod Mantle shoots though.
