Sony Announces Premium Rush For Blu-Ray In December

Star Joseph Gordon-Levitt has quickly made a name for himself over the past couple of years, starring in films like 50/50, The Dark Knight Rises and Looper. It was only a matter of time before he attempted something a little less safe and different from his usual crop of films, which is why Premium Rush originally sounded like a good idea.

Sony has announced the Blu-Ray release of David Koepp’s Premium Rush for December. The thrilling biking drama stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon.

Star Joseph Gordon-Levitt has quickly made a name for himself over the past couple of years, starring in films like 50/50, The Dark Knight Rises and Looper. It was only a matter of time before he attempted something a little less safe and different from his usual crop of films, which is why Premium Rush originally sounded like a good idea.

He shares the screen with the electrifying Michael Shannon, who as usual brings a fresh set of eyes to his character, but that just wasn’t enough for David Koepp’s adrenaline-fueled drama that centers on a bike messenger getting tangled up with crooked cops and mobster thugs.

Koepp’s film may look like rubbish thanks to the poorly cut trailers, but the film is actually a passable popcorn flick that shows off some impressive stunts, while continuing to excel the careers of both Shannon and Gordon-Levitt.

It’s not surprise that the film failed to hit its mark during its packed box office opening, but that shouldn’t push you away from renting this film at the very least.

Our very own Jonathan Lack had this to say about the film in his review:

For all its attempts at originality, Premium Rush is, at its heart, generic, and even if Koepp finds impressive ways to film and choreograph cycling, he cannot execute the generic story well.

Sony will be bringing the film to Blu-Ray with a 1080p video transfer, a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track and an UltraViolet Digital Copy of the film.

Premium Rush will be available to own on December 21st, 2012.

I'm an avid watcher of films and I just love discussing and sharing them with the world. I enjoy horror, sci-fi and mostly any genre under the sun, plus I have a slight obsession with Blu-ray's and the whole high definition craze.
