Aaron Paul, the hilarious, wonderful, talented maker of meth and of acting, stars in one of his first projects to be released post-Breaking Bad.
Need for Speed is an adaptation of the mega successful (+140 million copies sold worldwide) EA video game. I sucked at this game. True story. I am terrible at all racing car games.
I was better at Battleship, and that movie didn’t turn out so well, so perhaps this will mirror the pattern.
Iron Man’s Dad, Dominic Cooper stars as the films antagonist, set out to thwart any attempts of revenge on him by Tobey.
Take a look at the newly released full-length trailer (top of the post).
Let’s chat about the car. Attached to a helicopter. What? How does that even work. Please note that I thought Kid Cudi was actually Jamie Foxx in this trailer. My bad.
Also, special mention to Michael Keaton. Cool sunnies bro. You still got it.
Here’s the official synopsis:
[box]”Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), a blue-collar mechanic who races muscle cars on the side in an unsanctioned street-racing circuit. Struggling to keep his family-owned garage afloat, he reluctantly partners with the wealthy and arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper).
But just as a major sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save Tobey’s shop, a disastrous race allows Dino to frame Tobey for a crime he didn’t commit, sending Tobey to prison while Dino expands his business out west.
Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge — but he knows his only chance to take down his rival Dino is to defeat him in the high-stakes race known as De Leon — the Super Bowl of underground racing. However to get there in time, Tobey will have to run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet that includes dodging pursuing cops coast-to-coast as well as contending with a dangerous bounty Dino has put out on his car.”[/box]
