Must Watch: Joseph Gordon-Levitt in First Trailer for ‘Premium Rush’ |

In Premium Rush, a New York bike messenger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) picks up an envelope that attracts the interest of a dirty cop (Michael Shannon), who pursues the cyclist throughout the city desperate to get his hands on the envelope. Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch), Dania Ramirez (X-Men: The Last Stand) and Aasif Mandvi (Ghost Town) also star in this. David Koepp, director of Ghost Town and Secret Window and writer of Jurassic Park and Mission: Impossible, is directing the film and also co-wrote the script with John Kamps (who also wrote Ghost Town). Premium Rush hits theaters on January 13th, 2012.
