In the latest trailer for the Ron Howard directed film Rush, Chris Hemsworth strolls into a hospital announcing his arrival: “Hunt. James Hunt.” Who do you think you are, James Bond? Whatever — even with a bloody face, the Australian god (yes, he qualifies as a god, and not just because he plays Thor) looks damn good… and the latest trailer for the movie really banks on that.
The video has Hemsworth stripping down as cutie-pie nurse Gemma (Natalie Dormer) tends to his needs. As “I Can’t Stop” blares in the background, racecar dramatics ensue and Hemworth utters some inspiring words: “More powerful than fear of death itself is the will to win.”
Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer has joined the ensemble cast for director Lone Scherfig’s film Posh, reports Deadline.com.
Dormer, who also starred in The Tudors as Anne Boleyn, steps out of her period costume into jeans and a tee as a first-year Oxford student who is determined to join the elitist dining society, The Riot Club. The fictionalized clique is based on the real life Bullingdon Club that was known for its riotous rituals and destroying the restaurant they blessed with their presence.
While sounding obnoxious the group attempted to be considerate by paying for the damages on the spot. It’s almost as if stealing something for the thrill of getting away with it, but leaving the money in an envelope on your way out. Hmm, sounds like an interesting group to be a part of. Former members, BBC broadcaster David Dimbleby and Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, reflect on their Bullingdon days here.
In addition to Dormer, the cast so far includes Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), Max Irons (The Host), Douglas Booth (LOL) and Sam Reid (Redd Inc.).
The film is based on the play by the British playwright Laura Wade, which was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre in 2010.

Between now and June 28, the deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com will feature interviews with some of the actors and actresses whose names we hope to hear when nominations are announced on July 18.
How does a bright-eyed, sweet-natured, deceptively ambitious teenage girl navigate the treacherous waters of King’s Landing society — not to mention the cruel nature of her sadistic husband-to-be and his scheming mother — without losing her head? Simple: By hiding her true motives behind a megawatt smile, wielding innocence and enthusiasm as skillfully as a swordsman brandishes his blade.
It also helps if that teenager is played by 31-year-old Natalie Dormer, a seasoned performer who specializes in masters of manipulation like The Tudors‘ Anne Boleyn (another noble with royal ambitions) and Elementary‘s Irene Adler/Moriarty.
In Dormer’s hands, these characters are never just seductive scam artists. Margaery Tyrell of Game of Thrones, for example, is certainly cunning — but in the actress’ mind, she’s also genuinely caring, thoughtful, and liberal-minded. “She has quite a modern take on power and how it operates, which is fascinating to play,” Dorner told EW in between screenings at the Edinburgh Film Festival. We’re guessing she was being sincere — though with an actress like this, it’s always just a little tough to tell for sure.
Thanks to Laura, we have a few images of Natalie attending a Laura Mvula Performance in the Tia Maria Music Room.
