Must Watch: Joseph Gordon-Levitt in First Trailer for 'Premium Rush'
Since his turn in last summer's Inception, many fans of Joseph Gordon-Levitt are looking forward to his role in Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. But between now and then, the child actor turned impressive adult star can be seen in 50/50 (which hits theaters on September 30th) and this new thriller Premium Rush. We've already seen the aftermath of the actor smashing into a taxi cab in this adrenaline-fueled thriller, but this first trailer is full of energy, and really looks like an intense ride through the streets of New York City. Plus, you can't go wrong with Michael Shannon as the villain in hot pursuit. Check this out!

In Premium Rush, a New York bike messenger (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) picks up an envelope that attracts the interest of a dirty cop (Michael Shannon), who pursues the cyclist throughout the city desperate to get his hands on the envelope. Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch), Dania Ramirez (X-Men: The Last Stand) and Aasif Mandvi (Ghost Town) also star in this. David Koepp, director of Ghost Town and Secret Window and writer of Jurassic Park and Mission: Impossible, is directing the film and also co-wrote the script with John Kamps (who also wrote Ghost Town). Premium Rush hits theaters on January 13th, 2012. Excited?
