Premium Rush Trailer Featuring Danny MacAskill 7

Danny Mac recently worked as a stunt double for Premium Rush, a bike-courier action movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. You can catch glimpses of him at various points in this trailer. Pretty cool to see him break into Hollywood scene, regardless of the movie's theme.

"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."

    Levitt is definitely miscast. A hipster he does not look like. I was envisioning the lead singer of the Spin Doctors.

    I looks like the movie ends with the fixie hipster getting hit by a car. Sounds like a good flick.

    I can only see this as a good thing. When fixies are "too mainstream" then maybe hipsters will move onto something else. And what's more mainstream than a major studio movie release with 500 Days of Joseph Gordon Fixie-McGee
