Need for Speed has been a popular video game series for twenty years now. With that kind of longevity, it was only a matter of time before someone tried to make a movie based on the series, and now we’ve got one. It’s coming out in March. With a Need for Speed movie, we can expect plenty of edge-of-your-seat car racing action, but what else does a Need for Speed movie have in store? We know that the movie will feature running from the cops and supercars. But interestingly, the movie will have Aaron Paul in a lead role. Paul is well-known for playing Jessie in Breaking Bad. He was one of the stars of that show, but in a supporting role. It was Bryan Cranston who really carried the show as its lead. It will be interesting to see how Paul does as the face of this movie.
In the movie, Paul plays a blue collar-type street racer who goes to prison after being framed for a crime. After being released, he has to race cross-country in order to get revenge. That seems like a flimsy plot, and video game-based movies are notoriously bad, but the racing action looks like it can make up for whatever deficiencies are present in the script. And those who watched Breaking Bad know that Paul is very good at playing a desperate character who has few options. We can count on him being great to watch. Need for Speed is scheduled to be released in theaters on March 14, 2014. Check out the trailer below. If you like it, ‘Share’ it.
