CULVER CITY, CALIF. (October 16, 2012) – 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™ Monday, December 21st from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

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. Also starring Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez and Jamie Chung.
David Koepp directed PREMIUM RUSH; it was written by David Koepp and John Kamps and was produced by Gavin Polone.
