The Need For Speed video game franchise is finally being turned into a movie, and the first trailer of the action epic starring Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul is finally here.
The trailer is so moody! Aaron Paul plays Tobey Marshall; a guy fresh out of prison racing across the country. That’s pretty much all you need to know.
What’s really interesting is the range of cars the movie will show off.
The Fast & Furious franchise has a passion for Japanese imports and tuned American muscle. This Need For Speed movie is trying to do things different by filling the trailer (at least) with Euro supercar-goodness. Just in this brief clip, we see offerings from Bugatti, Pagani and McLaren racing across the screen. So much car porn. So. Much. Win.
From a story perspective, it’s interesting to watch Aaron Paul channel his inner-Bryan Cranston rather than just another street-racing bro a la Paul Walker in The Fast & The Furious.
The synopsis from IMDB is as follows:
Fresh from prison, a street racer who was framed by a wealthy business associate joins a cross country race with revenge in mind. His ex-partner, learning of the plan, places a massive bounty on his head as the race begins.
Need For Speed races onto screens in March.
