A new trailer for the thriller Premium Rush was released a few hours ago. It might be the first movie that actually makes going through New York City traffic look exciting. The movie was actually supposed to come out a few months ago, but it was pushed to this August.
In it, Joseph Gordon Levitt plays a bike messenger who picks up a package that wasn’t supposed to be given to him. Now, he has a mission to deliver it… and it looks like everyone else has a mission to make him dead.
Along with Gordon Levitt, the movie also stars Jamie Chung and Dania Ramirez. Premium Rush opens on August 24th.
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)
