Fixies go Hollywood in Quicksilver homage called “Premium Rush”

“I like to ride. Fixed gear. No brakes. Can’t stop. Don’t want to either.”

Sound cheesy? Well yeah, a little. But it’s the opening line of this trailer for what looks to be a fun summer 2012 film about a Big Apple bike courier outwitting a crew of miscreants whose evil plot he has somehow found himself inadvertently¬†embroiled.

The trailer makes it pretty evident that urban biking is a big part of the film and that we can expect to see a lot of close calls and even a bit of trials riding as our hero, played by the hard-to-not-like Joseph Gordon-Levitt, pumps his fixed gear in and out of traffic and trouble.

Oh, and Michael Shannon is in it. So there’s that.
