Here's a fantastic trailer for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's new film Premium Rush. No joke, this movie looks like an awesome thrill ride. The movie was directed by David Koepp, and the story follows a bike messenger who gets involved in a badass looking chase across New York City while riding his bike. The guy is one hell of a talented biker as well. I used to be able to pull of stuff like that on a bike but not anymore, this trailer makes me want to get back up on a bike and get a little crazy again though.
The film also stars Michael Shannon (Man of Steel/Boardwalk Empire) as “a deceptively affable cop with a violent temper”, Jamie Chung and Dania Ramirez. I'm definitely looking forward to this flick.
Here's the synopsis:
Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies, open doors, and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a day's work for Wilee, the best of New York's agile and aggressive bicycle messengers. It takes a special breed to ride the fixie -- super lightweight, single-gear bikes with no brakes and riders who are equal part skilled cyclists and suicidal nutcases who risk becoming a smear on the pavement every time they head into traffic.
But a guy who's used to putting his life on the line is about to get more than even he is used to when a routine delivery turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan. When Wilee picks up his last envelope of the day on a premium rush run, he discovers this package is different. This time, someone is actually trying to kill him.
The movie is set to be release on January 13th 2012. Watch the trailer below and tell us what you thnk!
