Being a bike courier most likely won't make you the most likable person on the street. You are flitting in and out of traffic, almost hitting pedestrians and usually causing disturbance whenever. This job can undoubtedly be a hard way to make a living, but it can be even more difficult if you're like the central character in Premium Rush.
Premium Rush is directed by David Koepp based on his own script and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Wilee, Michael Shannon as Bobby Monday, Dania Ramirez as Vanessa, Jamie Chung as Nima and Wolé Parks as Manny.
The film is rated PG-13 for some violence, extreme action sequences and language
Wilee is a bike messenger who spends most of his time on the streets of New York City delivering parcels. His bike only has one gear and he avoids adding brakes of any kind, because he thinks they will get you killed on this work. But one day, after he goes on a run to collect his last package of the day, he encounters something unusual. He finds himself running for his life as he's being hunted by gang that seem to want him dead, whatever it is that he's carrying or both.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release Premium Rush on DVD and Blu-ray on December 21, 2012, just in time for a last minute holiday shopping. This home video release will have the following bonus features.
