New Premium Rush trailer speeds by

PremiumRush.jpgI know that as I get older I'm not so fast but I don't think I'm deteriorating as quickly as this. The trailer for Premium Rush is fast, really fast, and add to that the fact that it's edited really sharply and I find myself struggling to keep up, follow what's happening and see a stunt properly.

The film is supposed to be fast though, it's about a bike courier racing through the streets of the city trying to get the package he's carrying to the destination while other people, other people with cars and guns, try and stop him and take it from him.

Still, I would have liked to have seen more than one stunt through to completion, as it is the sliding under the lorry trick is really cool but there are bike leaps hinted at and other great manoeuvres, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how they turn out in the film.

It is a fast trailer though and perhaps a little too fast. If it could have slowed and taken a bit more of a breather we might have felt the story flow a little better but it does feel rather staccato and, like the title, rushed.

I have high hopes for the film though and I'm excited to see what Danny MacAskill has delivered for the film, although I'm really not sure how involved he was since he doesn't get an IMDB credit.

It's not just the excellent Scottish cyclist in Premium Rush there's Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jamie Chung and Michael Shannon starring and David Koepp co-wrote and directed the film.

I do think that the previous trailer was stronger, but here's the new one over at Yahoo Movies through Deadline:
