We've got a great new trailer for you to watch for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's awesome looking new thriller Premium Rush. This trailer make me miss riding my bike. I use to be an avid mountain biker, and was able to pull of some pretty radical moves, but it's been years. I think it's time for me to pull my bike out of storage, get it tuned up and get back out there.
The film was directed by David Koepp, and the story follows a bike messenger who gets involved with the wrong people and ends up in bike chase across New York City trying to stay alive. It also stars Michael Shannon (Man of Steel/Boardwalk Empire) as “a deceptively affable cop with a violent temper”, Jamie Chung and Dania Ramirez. This is sure to be an enteraining fun 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, and let us know how good of a bike ridier you are.
