Two-time Golden Globe® nominee Joseph Gordon-Levitt (“The Dark Knight Rises”) delivers pulse-pounding excitement in the action-packed thriller PREMIUM RUSH, coming onto Blu-ray and DVD this February from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The film also stars Academy Award® nominee Michael Shannon (Best Supporting Actor, “Revolutionary Road,” 2008), Jamie Chung (“Suckerpunch”), and Dania Ramirez (“American Reunion”).
Bonus materials include two behind-the-scenes featurettes: “The Starting Line: Meet the Cast,” which highlights the cast and creative development, and “Behind the Wheels: Featurette on the Action, Stunts and Chases,” providing a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to do one of the riskiest jobs around.
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.
David Koepp directed PREMIUM RUSH; it was written by David Koepp and John Kamps and was produced by Gavin Polone.
