Aaron Paul and Dominic Cooper star in the first Need For Speed trailer
For those of us needing to catch up on our DVR’d episodes of ‘Breaking Bad’, the internet can be a minefield of spoilers. But at the same time, the show is at the height of its popularity right now with the series finale a few days away. So it makes sense that we get the first trailer for NEED FOR SPEED this week. The film stars Aaron Paul, who has captivated audiences as Jesse Pinkman for years now and although I have high hopes for him, I’m not sure this is his ticket. The movie might end up being fun, but the first trailer makes everything look a little cheesy to me. Check it out below and see for yourself. NEED FOR SPEED stars Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Michael Keaton, Imogen Poots, Dakota Johnson, Rami Malek, Kid Cudi and Han Soto. The Scott Waugh directed film hits theaters on March 14th, 2014.
The official NEED FOR SPEED synopsis: The story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time—one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. In a last attempt to save his struggling garage, blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul)—who with his team skillfully builds and races muscle cars on the side—reluctantly partners with wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). Just as a major sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save the business, a disastrous, unsanctioned race results in Dino framing Tobey for manslaughter. Two years later and fresh out of prison, Tobey is set on revenge with plans to take down Dino in the high-stakes De Leon race—the Super Bowl of underground racing. To get there in time, Tobey must run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet, dodging cops coast-to-coast and dealing with fallout from a dangerous bounty Dino put on his car. With his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia as allies, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.
