Popcorn Column

Universal Pictures   Director Ron Howard shows the story of the 1971 Formula One championship between James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), left, and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). The asphalt rumbles like nothing you've ever heard or felt before — a symphony of horsepower in metal, rubber, plastic and dangerously powerful racing fuel. The flags of nations wave in the grandstands, complemented by the splashing advertisements of big name sponsors.   All the beautiful people, adorned in designer sunglasses and threads, are there, and maybe me, too, focused on the dashing drivers,
