There's nothing like a family-friendly animated movie to help shake off the September doldrums and 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' performed as expected. Although Sony's big release effortlessly took the number one spot, this weekend had a few other bright spots, namely a handful of independent films doing quite well in more limited release.
Ron Howard's 'Rush' is over two straight hours of lionizing F1 drivers as though they were Gods who ride among us. That aspect is demeaning and insufferable. But the thing is, 'Rush' is a good enough movie on its merits that I pretty much enjoyed it. If you are one who enjoys racing, I can only imagine how you'll react. (Perhaps you should wear a bib for all the drooling.)

If 'Fast and Furious 6' doesn't satisfy your need for speed, there's another high-octane racing film on its way this year - the Formula 1 set pic 'Rush' starring 'Thor' himself, Chris Hemsworth.

Hot on the heels of its official release date announcement, the first stills from Ron Howard's 'Rush' have hit the internet via the film's official website. If you don't know anything about this movie and want to know why it should be on your radar in one sentence or less, here's what you need to know: Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl play rival Formula One drivers. Yeah. That does sound awesome.
Although the following paragraphs will essentially be a report about some pretty standard movie industry going-ons, it's also a nice look at the interesting variety of projects that Universal has on its plate. Sure, the meat of the story here is that the studio has set release dates for 'Oblivion,' 'Rush' and 'Mama,' but can you think of three projects that sound more different and involve such talent?
