Columbia Pictures has released a new poster for Joseph Gordon-Levitt's awesome looking action thriller Premium Rush. The story follows a New York bike messenger who ends up in a crazy chase through Manhattan after being given a mysterious package to deliver. The movie looks like it will end up being a lot of fun.
The movie was directed by David Koepp (Ghost Town), and also stars Jamie Chung (Sorority Row) Dania Ramirez (Entourage) and Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire) and is set to be released on August 24th, 2012.
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 (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), 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.
