Joseph Gordon-Levitt rides like hell in the latest trailer for Premium Rush

May. 31, 2012by:

I feel like we should have seen PREMIUM RUSH months ago. Wait, we were supposed to get it in January then it was moved to August 24th.

This is the second trailer for the film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Yes, he actually gets to headline a big film. But is this the right move for Levitt? Sure, it seems like a fun little thriller. Plus, there's Michael Shannon. That's worth your ticket price right there.

Check out the trailer below and let us know if you think it's going to be entertaining enough.

"Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies, open doors, and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in 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 suicidal 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 a routine delivery turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan. When Wilee picks up his last envelope of the day on a premium rush run, he discovers this package is different. This time, someone is actually trying to kill him."

Ehhhhh

Sorry, I love JGL and Shannon but I have a feeling if they weren't in this movie people would be calling it shite.

Reminds me of Cellular.

This is totally The Ultimate Rush. Did they get the rights to Joe Quirk's book or did they just plagiarize?

Plagiarized. At least, according to Joe Quirk, who filed a lawsuit against David Koepp and John Kamps: [link]

Maybe this is a good movie, I dunno. Looks like it's taking itself too seriously. But fuck, if I had a dollar for every time I wanted to run down an annoying biker when I'm driving...

It's Surprisingly Good!

Saw this in a test screening and was shocked that I enjoyed it as much as I did, considering it was directed by David Koepp. He can be really cheesy!

It sounds stupid on paper, an action movie starring a bike courier, but somehow JGL and Michael Shannon makes it surprisingly fun.

while I think the release date change

is absolutely retarded, it's just going to get outshadowed by the bigger summer flicks and their wake--I actually think this movie looks really cool.

When I saw the first trailer a while back I was really surprised, looks like damn fun and still does! But I'm still a little shocked to all the negative reaction to this movie so far, not sure what people aren't liking about it -- I don't see it, just looks like a fun popcorn thriller to me!

I agree on the release date change, all they did was change from winter dump month to summer dump month, but I thought it looked good when I saw the first trailer and even better now.
