New Premium Rush Trailer Delivered
Joseph Gordon-Levitt rides for his life

Ah, bike messengers… Whether you see them as life-saving daredevils swooping through the steel canyons of cities to make sure urgent documents get delivered on time or treat them as cocky, helmeted menaces dodging traffic and making the streets hell for drivers, there’s no denying the compelling image of a biker involved in a life or death chase. Or least there isn’t for David Koepp, who made that the subject of his latest film, Premium Rush. The second trailer for the film is online at Yahoo and can be watched below.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Wilee (we assume his parents watched a lot of Road Runner cartoons), one of New York’s legion of messengers who put their life on the line with every delivery. Speeding through Manhattan on a specially adapted, lightweight bike with one gear and no brakes, he’s constantly at risk of becoming human jam on the pavement.

But then one delivery, which has to be sent top speed – hence the title – leads to more trouble than usual. Soon, Wilee is on the run from corrupt cops (including Michael Shannon) and criminals, and his friends and family are also in danger…

With Jamie Chung, Dania Ramirez, Aasif Mandvi, and Aaron Tveit also in the cast, Premium Rush rides into our cinemas on September 14.
