Premium Rush starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon coming to Blu-ray in December
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that the action thriller PREMIUM RUSH, directed by David Koepp and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Shannon, Dania Ramirez, Jamie Chung and Sean Kennedy, will be available on Blu-ray with an Ultraviolet Digital Copy on December 21st, 2012.
PREMIUM RUSH follows the story of Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), who is a bike courier in Manhattan, NY that likes to push the limit by riding a bike with no brakes. One day, Wilee has a delivery that is so valuable, a corrupt NYC Detective begins to chase him throughout the city in order to stead the envelope full of money that is being carried.
Artwork will be updated when available
Not surprisingly, PREMIUM RUSH didn’t get a lot of love at the box office only bringing in just over $20 million total. The marketing for the film was fairly sparse and I think the studio was trying to piggyback on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s success from THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, but that obviously didn’t work. Since JGL is in this film, it will merit a Blu-ray viewing, but I’m not sure how great the film will be.
There are no special features available for PREMIUM RUSH at this time. Check out the trailer below.
