Aaron Paul is mostly known for Breaking Bad, but the Need For Speed trailer paints him as a scorned version of The Fast and the Furious‘ Paul Walker. After being released from prison for a crime he didn’t commit, Paul drives through anything in his way to settle the score and seek revenge.
Paul has said that the film is supposed to be a throwback to the Steve McQueen-era of muscle cars and testosterone. When I think of Need for Speed, however, I mostly think of the mid-90s, techno, and car customization. This movie looks pretty silly, but don’t forget that Academy Award-nominated John Gatins wrote the script.
Need for Speed opens on March 14, 2014.
