First movie for Movie Fest 2012 revealed!

Movie Fest is back again on September 8th & 9th in Dublin’s Cineworld cinema. Last year we brought you the first public screenings of movies like ‘Drive’ and ‘Fright Night’ and this year we plan to bring you another jam packed programme. 

Each day will feature three highly anticipated blockbusters, none of which will have opened in Irish cinemas.
 
Tickets went on sale last night at Cineworld and are already moving fast. Visit http://www.Movies.ie/Fest for ticket information.

Today we’re able to reveal our first movie preview… PREMIUM RUSH.

PREMIUM RUSH will get its first Irish screening at Movie Fest, Joseph Gordon Levitt stars in this sharp, edgy thriller about a New York City bicycle courier who gets mixed up in a dodgy deal, resulting in some impressive bike chases across Manhattan. The movie is directed by David Koepp and co-stars Jamie Chung and Michael Shannon.


 

OFFICIAL SUMMARY
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.

Check out the PREMIUM RUSH trailer
