If you haven’t already seen the trailer for Premium Rush, skip this and watch below. Michael Shannon and Joseph Gordon-Levitt star in the new action-thriller that could have easily been another Jason Stratham flick, if Stratham wore jean cut-offs, was trained in parkour and played a college grad with a crummy job and a ten-speed.
“Ride Like Hell” indeed. The bike chase scenes and explosions set in Brookyln promise plenty of trendy schlock. But with this kind of talent backing it, you just have to pray it’s something more than a paycheck movie. In a recent interview, Gordon-Levitt likened Shannon’s performance to James Cagney. Hopefully he means the badass performance and not just his craggy mug.
Premium Rush comes to theatres August 24th.
