Aaron Paul plans to get even with Dominic Cooper in the latest trailer for Need for Speed
It's hard to watch the latest trailer for NEED FOR SPEED with Aaron Paul and not think Jesse Pinkman. Isn't this what happens after BREAKING BAD? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Paul will be linked with that role for some time now but with it being one of the best and memorable characters in a television series it's no surprise. Still I'm glad that we have the awesomeness that is Aaron Paul and look forward to seeing him in whatever projects he pursues in the future.
All that glowing praise aside, the trailer looks like a blast. Yes, the word choice is "blast". It's fun. There's tons of great action and little clips of Michael Keaton giving advice.
"It's time we make him pay."
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 didnt 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.
NEED FOR SPEED hits theaters on March 14, 2014.
