Bikin' Ain't Easy: New Pics From 'Premium Rush' With Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Michael Shannon

Basically, for the rest of the summer, there's "The Dark Knight Rises" and then, Everything Else. Christopher Nolan's superhero flick will pretty much tower over and dominate the rest of the competition as the blockbuster season winds down, but one movie is hoping that if you like what you see of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Gotham City, you'll want to him again in New York, in the slightly less heroic role of...bike courier.

Basically, for the rest of the summer, there's "The Dark Knight Rises" and then, Everything Else. Christopher Nolan's superhero flick will pretty much tower over and dominate the rest of the competition as the blockbuster season winds down, but one movie is hoping that if you like what you see of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Gotham City, you'll want to him again in New York, in the slightly less heroic role of...bike courier.

Originally slated to hit theaters in January, Sony moved David Koepp's "Premium Rush" to the tail end of August, presumably to try and get some post-Batman lovin' from ticket buyers. The thriller follows a bike courier who comes into possesion of a package that's wanted by a crooked cop (Michael Shannon), and what ensues is basically a lot of pedalling and bike tricks as Joseph Gordon-Levitt tries to evade capture and figure out just what the hell has turned his ordinary workday into an action adventure movie. 

A bunch of new pics have dropped for the movie, and a couple seem a bit spoilery, but who knows. Frankly, we'll be watching this to see Shannon bite into into a villain with some relish but otherwise our expectations are low. "Premium Rush" makes delivery on August 24th. [Kinopoisk]
