fixed gear, no brakes: premium rush trailer

okay initially i thought this was going to a a little late- in reality it seem not as lame as i initially thought. if you didnt know, this was filmed using body doubles from the likes of trials master danny macaskill, fgfs tuck meister tom la marche, and THE austin horse. with stunt guys like that it's gotta be fast paced and chock full of steezy moves. one mistake though- let's run through sony's description shall we?

"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."

ugh that word.

lol@fixie battles scenes and running red lights with no hands without looking into the intersection.
