Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies 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 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 his last envelope of the day – a routine “premium rush” run – turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan.

Premium Rush Blu-ray Bonus Clip Shows The Dangers Of Bicycle Stunts
Premium Rush, the action flick that was ignored by Joseph Gordon-Levitt fans and bicycling enthusiasts alike, is coming to Blu-ray and DVD (with Ultraviolet) fairly soon.

Weekend Box Office: Expendables 2 Holds Weak Top Spot As Summer Winds Down
This weekend the reigning box office champion The Expendables 2 was looking close to getting pushed out by a documentary that I, here in New York, had never even heard of. But while the polemical documentary 2016: Obama's America is doing much bigger business than most docs

The Expendables 2 Holds On Top Of Friday Box Office
Thanks to a perfect storm of unexpected factors, Joseph Gordon-Levitt wound up going through the rear window of a taxi cab during the Premium Rush shoot. Another actor likely would have screamed to be taken to the hospital immediately, but in the moment, all JGL could think about was making sure his injury was filmed for possible inclusion in the movie.

This Rotten Week: Predicting Hit and Run, The Apparition and Premium Rush Reviews
When the first trailer for Premium Rush was released last September it was in anticipation of a January 13th release date - a release date that came and went without Premium Rush's delivery to theaters (no pun intended).

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Races Around New York City In The First Trailer For Premium Rush
If the movie goes on to be a huge hit, Koepp would become every screenwriter's dream incarnate. While part of me wants him to fail after what he did to one of my most beloved characters, everyone knows that it was Lucas' hand
