Joseph Gordon-Levitt returns to the big screen this month in Premium Rush, coming off the back of the success of one of the biggest and best films this year, The Dark Knight Rises.

The action-thriller hit US theatres at the end of last month, and its release on our shores is just around the corner next weekend, and we’ve got a new TV spot to prime our anticipation – and if you’re reading this in the States and you’re yet to see it, it should already be playing in a cinema near you.

“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.”

Gordon-Levitt stars alongside Michael Shannon and Dania Ramirez in the leads, with Jamie Chung and Aasif Mandvi completing the cast nicely, and David Koepp (Spider-Man, Ghost Town) is behind the camera, directing from a script he co-wrote with John Kamps (Ghost Town).

Premium Rush will be released in UK theatres on 14th September, and is currently already playing in theatres Stateside. And with Rian Johnson’s Looper, starring Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, just around the corner, we’ve got an awesome few weeks ahead of us.
