Joseph Gordon-Levitt Explodes In Trailer for Premium Rush!
The movie is set to be release on January 13th 2012.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt explodes in this new film Premium Rush. Literally a thrill ride, Levitt shows off some serious bike skills in the film. What is even more impressive is that the film is being directed by David Koepp, who has spent a lifetime writing films like Jurassic Park, The Shadow and Spider-man. Koepp has directed films before but nothing as thrilling as this. The story follows a bike messenger who gets involved in a badass looking chase across New York City while riding his bike.
This movie continues to not only show us the range of Levitt but his evolution as an actor over the course of the past 10 years. Going from child actor (Angels in the Outfield), transitioning to teen heartthrob (10 Things I Hate About You) and surprise TV star (3rd Rock from the Sun) to respected indie actor (Brick, 500 Days of Summer). Now I guess you can add action star to the list as he surprised many in Inception, now this movie and hopefully the upcoming films, Looper and The Dark Knight Rises.
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.
