Synopsis:

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. Also starring Michael Shannon, Jamie Chung, and Dania Ramirez.

David Koepp directed Premium Rush; it was written by David Koepp and John Kamps and was produced by Gavin Polone.

Bonus Features Include:

  • "The Starting Line - Meet The Cast" featurette
  • - "Behind The Wheels - Featurette on the Action, Stunts and Chases"

Premium Rush has a running time of 91 minutes and is rated PG-13 for some violence, intense action sequences and language.
