Columbia Pictures has unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming “Premium Rush” action thriller, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez and Jamie Chung. Check it out below.
Plot: The story centers on a New York bike messenger (Gordon-Levitt) who picks up an envelope at Columbia University, only to be chased throughout the city by a dirty cop (Shannon) desperate to get his hands on it. 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 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 his last envelope of the day – a routine “premium rush” run –
turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan.
The new movie is directed by David Koepp (Stir of Echoes, Secret Window) and is set to hit theaters on August 24th.
