Remember that bicycling movie you saw the trailer for half-a-year ago and was sure it already came and went in theaters? Well, it hasn’t and we’ve got a new trailer to jog some memories. Sony pushed Premium Rush back from January to make some cash off its star Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who will be in post-The Dark Knight Rises territory this August. Lots of people ragged on our first look and this one is more of the same, but it honestly looks like some silly, popcorn fun, especially with Michael Shannon hamming it up in a villain role. With his other serious roles in Looper, Lincoln and the Christopher Nolan blockbuster, I’m looking forward for JGL to take it easy here. Check out the trailer below via Yahoo for the David Koepp thriller also starring Jamie Chung and Dania Ramirez.
Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies, open doors, and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a day’s work for Wilee, the best of New York’s agile and aggressive bicycle messengers.

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 routine delivery turns into a life or death chase through the streets of Manhattan. When Wilee picks up his last envelope of the day on a premium rush run, he discovers this package is different. This time, someone is actually trying to kill him.
Premium Rush hits theaters August 24th, 2012.

Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not [...]
Grand Piano is a film that is so masterfully done that it seems silly one would ever have doubts that the story could be pulled off. Much of that has to do with the work of the blossoming director Eugenio Mira, who actually created animatics of the film to get everyone on the same page. Starring Elijah Wood as [...]
