JGL gets on two wheels in a race against time.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars in Premium Rush, released this September, about a New York bicycle courier handed an important package to deliver. The seemingly routine job soon becomes a high-stakes chase across the city as corrupt cop Michael Shannon (Winner of the highly prestigious Screengeek award for Best Actor 2011), amongst others, set off in hot pursuit of the mysterious delivery. This looks like good breathless fun, a high-energy thriller with a two-wheeled twist, and we look forward to seeing what JGL and pals get up to on September the 14th.
A New York bike messenger is given an envelope by a young woman at an uptown Manhattan college and is told he has 90 minutes to deliver it to an address in Chinatown. Complications ensue when an undercover police office appears and demands the envelope on special grounds. The truth, hidden motivations, and the life-and-death stakes on all sides are revealed through a series of flashbacks as the cop and the messenger engage in a length-of-Manhattan chase, racing against time after the messenger discovers the precious nature of the envelope’s slender contents. This movie also stars Jamie Chung (Grown Ups, Hangover II), Dania Ramirez (Entourage, Heroes), Michael Shannon (Boardwalk Empire)
