Chris Hemsworth Wears Carrera Sunglasses on Set of New Movie Rush

Chris Hemsworth - Carrera Sunglasses on Set of New Movie Rush

Australian actor Chris Hemsworth was recently seen wearing Carrera Sunglasses in a on-set interview for his new movie Rush, due for release in 2013.

The movie, directed by Ron Howard and also starring Olivia Wilde is based on the true story of the legendary sporting rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda during the 1976 Formula One season.  It was a time when men were men and drivers risked their lives for the sport they loved.  Indeed it was a season that almost claimed the life of Niki Lauda who had a terrifying crash at the old Nürburgring in which he was badly burned in the fireball that followed.

Chris Hemsworth’s career has sky rocketed recently after appearing in Star Trek, then taking on the title role in the movie Thor and of course this years smash hit Marvel Avengers Assemble.  The Aussie actor will be taking on the role of 1976 British World Champion James Hunt in Rush, and seeing him in these pictures you must admit he looks the part.

The model worn by Chris Hemsworth here is the Carrera 44 Sunglasses in colour J88(CC) Gold Havana with graduated brown lenses.

The Carrera brand heavily associates itself with sport,  motor sport or driving in general and these awesome aviator sunglasses are no different.  They are the perfect pair of retro style driving sunglasses, and as you can see in these pictures, they really suit Hemsworth and the theme of the movie perfectly.
