The Need For Speed franchise is breaking out of your video game console to the Big Screen. I just saw the Need For Speed Movie Trailer. It looks amazing. Coming fresh off his stint as Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad, Aaron Paul should know better than to do a movie that could possibly harm his career. But then again There are those who just do it all for the money. Please say it ain’t so Aaron. The Need For Speed games have never disappointed for the most part, so why start here. We all know how Hollywood can destroy what we know and love best in the video game world, i.e. Mortal Combat, Doom, Silent Hill, just to name a few.
There are lots of sexy women. Loads of fast exotic cars. And there are quite a few surprises in this video game come movie blockbuster. Micheal Keaton, Dakota Johnson, and Kid Cudi all help round out Need For Speed. The movie centers on Aaron Paul whose main character is just released from prison. He was a street racer who was framed and serves his time. As soon as he is set free he joins a cross country race with nothing but revenge on his mind. When his rich ex partner finds out he is part of the race he puts out a contract on his head which attracts a host of bad guys that come looking for the large payday. Sounds like it has been done before, but with new movie technology and a fresh mindset and a great trailer, our dollars should not be wasted on a ticket. By the way, no cars were harmed in the making of Need for Speed. They were all replicas with bogus engines. I feel a whole lot better.
This should be an awesome movie. Take a look at the Need For Speed Movie Trailer for yourselves.
