Wednesday 23rd January 2013
Two-time Golden Globe® nominee Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Looper) delivers pulse-pounding excitement in the action-packed thriller Premium Rush, coming onto Blu-ray and DVD with UltraViolet 25th February 2013 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.
