The film centres on Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a bike messenger who has no breaks in his cycle so that he can deliver at the fastest; mind you, riding a break-less bike is Wilee’s own choice and wish!
Life was moving smooth and fast for him, until he got an assignment to deliver an envelope that enclosed something really valuable and caught the evil intentions of a corrupt NYC detective (Michael Shannon)!
The detective now traces Wilee throughout the town and plans to take hold of the envelope by hook or crook! Wilee, on the other hand, will put his life at stake but deliver the envelope to its assigned destination.
Some awesome stunts, thrill and adrenaline rush, Premium Rush seems to have all the trappings capable of attracting footfalls! The film will release in India on October 19, along with Karan Johar’s Student of The Year.
Just a thought, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra would compete in various games to win the title of Student of The Year in the namesake film! If cycling, too, would be an event, going by the trailer of Premium Rush, we don’t think they would be able to defeat Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Weird thought!
