With the final episode of Breaking Bad less than a week away what better time is there to release a trailer for an upcoming Aaron Paul movie? That movie is Need for Speed, which DreamWorks hopes will attract the Fast and Furious crowd (once upon a time that franchise was about fast cars until they became big action films).
Need for Speed will be released March 14, 2014 and is based on the popular racing game published by Electronic Arts. Over 16 games have been released since 1994 and it is one of the most successful video game franchises of all time. Can that success be replicated on the big screen?
Watch the trailer below:
Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction. Tobey tears up the road in a gritty cross-country journey— one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” is directed by Scott Waugh (“Act of Valor”), and also stars Dominic Cooper, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Imogen Poots, Dakota Johnson and Scott Mescudi.
