In the trailer for Premium Rush, star Joseph Gordon-Levitt looks like a little bit of an action star, intense chase scenes and all — just on a bicycle. He plays Wilee, a bike messenger who loves riding his fixed gear and takes pride in ensuring all the packages he's entrusted with are received quickly. One day, he's handed a sensitive package that a crooked cop (Michael Shannon) decides he wants back, but it's Wilee's policy to get all his deliveries to their destination, so he refuses.
The chase is on, and the majority of the trailer features JGL weaving in and out of New York City traffic and trying not to get hit by cars (and you can see how well that works out for him). The movie is pretty straightforward in plot, but it looks pretty thrilling — and it's nice that the star happens to look adorable on his set of wheels, grinning and flirting with his costar whenever he's not being hunted down. The film comes out on Jan. 13, but watch the trailer for Premium Rush after the jump.
