Ride Like Hell

Premium Rush Box Art

Premium Rush

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Wilee, the best of New York's bicycle messengers, for whom dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a day's work. 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 at risk becoming a smear on the pavement. 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 a "premium rush" envelope turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan.

See Joseph Gordon-Levitt in an exclusive behind-the-scenes bonus feature clip from 'Premium Rush,' available on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand:
