Here is the trailer for Need For Speed. The upcoming film is based on the the video game series created by Electronic Arts. Check out the official press release from Dreamworks below. 

Press Release: DreamWorks Pictures’ “Need for Speed” marks an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s, when the authenticity of the world brought a new level of intensity to the action on-screen. Tapping into what makes the American myth of the open road so appealing, the story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey for our heroes — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, "Need for Speed" captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.

The film centers around 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, and 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. With the help of his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.

In an exciting return to the great car culture films of the 1960s and ’70s that tap into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing, “Need for Speed” chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption.

Need For Speed stars Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek, Scott Mescudi, Dakota Johnson, Harrison Gilbertson, Michael Keaton, and is directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor). 

Need For Speed stars arrives March 14th, 2014.

 Is it me or does this look a lot like Fast and the Furious.

thegypsy 11/19/2013 8:26:51 AM

 i was thinking the same thing

I mean, it looks kinda cool.  But yeah, they could've called it Fast and Furious 7 and no one would've batted an eye.

I was waiting for him to say to Vin Diesel, "Yo, what up b!tch."  F&F rip-off for sure, but so what else is different these days in hollywood?  Pretty much every movie out is a rip-off of a previous movie.

I saw this trailer before Thor and thought "this looks like shit". Too bad i couldn't fast forward.

 Guaranteed this movie would do ALOT better if his character's name was "Jesse Pinkman"

Why show the chopper  hooking the car, leave moments like that open ended in the trailer.

I think it looks like a decent car/action flick and I'm sure I'll be seeing it.

My big wonderment is whether or not Aaron Paul can transition to leading man. I'm not buying him as a top dog alpha male. He just seems too small and like a wannabe  so I'm curious how he'll be received when this film drops

Yeah science!

domino2008 11/19/2013 4:34:50 PM
