Joseph Gordon-Levitt Races Around New York City In The First Trailer For Premium Rush
Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon are two actors about to blow up in a major way. In addition to their individual movies coming out this fall, 50/50 and Take Shelter (both of which are considered by many to be some of the best films of 2011), each actor is playing a role in a major upcoming superhero film - Gordon-Levitt in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises and Shannon in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel. But before we see the actors invade the comic book movie universe, we'll see them go head-to-head in David Koepp's Premium Rush.
Columbia Pictures has released the first trailer for the movie, which you can check out below or in HD over on Yahoo!
In the film, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Wilee, a bike messenger working in New York City. One day he is tasked with getting an envelope across town. While this seems like a normal job, he's stopped by a corrupt cop (Shannon), who needs the information that Wilee has been assigned to deliver. This begins an epic chase through the city, as Wilee tries to get the envelope where it needs to go before it's too late. The film co-stars Jamie Chung, Aasif Mandvi, and Dania Ramirez and is set to be released on January 13, 2012.
