Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a plucky, intense bike messenger in David Koepp‘s Premium Rush, and Columbia has released a new trailer for the film in advance of its August opening. The studio dropped a fairly middling trailer last year that opened with a dodgy voice-over, and this version thankfully eliminates most of that. This is also a more fast-paced look at the movie, with an emphasis on action. Check it out below.

Yahoo has the trailer. Premium Rush opens on August 24.

Dodging speeding cars, crazed cabbies, open doors, and eight million cranky pedestrians is all in a day’s work for Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), the best of New York’s agile and aggressive bicycle messengers. It takes a special breed to ride the fixie — super lightweight, single-gear bikes with no brakes and riders who are equal part skilled cyclists and suicidal nutcases who risk becoming a smear on the pavement every time they head into traffic.

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.
