Joseph Gordon Levitt and Michael Shannon are ditching the super hero movies and heading to the streets of NYC for the upcoming movie, ‘Premium Rush’.

The movie, which also stars Jamie Chung, Dania Ramirez and Aasif Mandvi is the tale of a bike messenger who becomes involved in a chase around New York after being asked to deliver a mysterious envelope.

We don’t know much about the movie, but it looks pretty damned epic for a movie about a dude on a bicycle. Also, who doesn’t want to watch JGL get hit by a taxi?

Watch the trailer below, the movie comes out January 13, 2012.
