Trailer: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon Play Good Bike Messenger, Bad Cop in Premium Rush

Take it from Jennifer Aniston -- working as a New York City bike messenger is neither glamorous nor exciting. Unless you're Joseph Gordon-Levitt in David Koepp's upcoming bike messenger thriller Premium Rush, in which case transporting packages across town is a fast-paced career option with hot co-workers, adrenaline rushes and the occasional highly dangerous assignment.

Here, we see Gordon-Levitt as a passionate bike messenger who waxes poetic about riding fixed speed and flirts with a gorgeous colleague (Dania Ramirez) who bashes in side-view mirrors for fun. They take pride in the timeliness of their deliveries and happen to get a rush from their job. It seems kind of great! Until Michael Shannon shows up as a dirty cop who will do anything to get his hands on one a mysterious package that JGL has picked up from Columbia University.

Premium Rush was written and directed by David Koepp (Secret Window). Look for the thriller in theaters Jan. 13.
