We have added a new set of pictures from Premium Rush, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt
as a head-strong New York City bike messenger and Michael Shannon
as the dirty cop who desperately wants his latest delivery.
The film co-stars Jamie Chung, Aasif Mandvi
and Dania Ramirez.
Here’s the official synopsis
for the film:
Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies, open doors, and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a day’s work for Wilee, 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.
-directed film is released to theaters on August 24th, 2012.
