I for one have never had the luxury of spending any quality time in New York, but if it’s anything like in the movies, it’s one big rush. So if it’s anything like Premium Rush, then I cannot wait to experience the city firsthand. A new trailer for Premium Rush, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is now online. You can check out the trailer below.
Gordon-Levitt stars as a New York bicycle messenger who is tasked with delivering a seemingly harmless message to its destination in 90 minutes. But once an undercover police officer finds out that the message is out there, he demands that it be handed over and soon the messenger is caught up in a conspiracy and chase that covers the length of Manhattan.
The trailer features some amazing and dangerous bike stunt work. Going under a low truck bed at top speed is sure to get the adrenaline pumping and the audience gripping their seats. Sure the plot may seem played out, and the only thing that could really draw in the target audience is the stunt work, but the film also stars Michael Shannon. Both he and Gordon-Levitt should be more than enough to get me interested in this flick.
Co-written and directed by David Koepp, Premium Rush also stars Jamie Chung and Dania Ramirez and will hit theaters on August 24th.
