Premium Rush Trailer

A rather exciting looking trailer has emerged for Sony Columbia’s action thriller, Premium Rush.

The film follows Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a New York City bicycle messenger, who is assigned to deliver an envelope. He soon realises that he’s carrying something very important when he’s intercepted by a police officer (Michael Shannon), who will stop at nothing to obtain the envelope for himself, telling Wilee that it’s a matter of “life and death.” Now, what would normally be an everyday premium rush delivery turns into a deadly chase. 

Written and directed by renowned screenwriter David Koepp, I imagine that the delivery of an envelope will most likely become the film’s MacGuffin. Still, the trailer does showcase a few nifty cycle stunts, some of which Joseph Gordon-Levitt performed himself, only to end up getting into an accident during filming when he collided with the back of a taxi.

The film also stars Dania Ramirez, Jamie Chung and Aasif Mandvi.

Premium Rush opens in the US on January 13th 2012 and in the UK on February 17th 2012.
