From Act of Valor director Scott Waugh comes the turbo-charged thrill ride Need for Speed. Written by George Gatins and John Gatins and based on the best-selling video game series, the breakthrough action hit stars Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Scott Mescudi aka Kid Cudi, Dakota Johnson and Michael Keaton.
Struggling to make ends meet, underground driver and garage owner Tobey Marshall reluctantly makes a deal with wealthy ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster to complete the build of a rare Ford Shelby Mustang in exchange for money. However, the two have a fallout and the innocent Marshall gets framed for a crime he did not commit after a tragic street-racing mishap. Incarcerated for two years, when Tobey is released from prison, he sets off on a course for revenge against Dino and the death of his friend Little Pete. In a near-impossible race against time, he must drive from New York to San Francisco in two days to enter the De Leon, an illicit winner-takes-all race featuring the country’s top underground racers including Dino. Hitting the road, it will be no simple task when the ruthless Dino puts a bounty on Tobey by offering his rare Lamborghini Sesto Elemento to anyone who can stop him. With a huge number of street racers and the police hot on Tobey’s trail, he pushes his limits to the max as he speeds off to get to the starting line before the race begins.
Both the DVD and Blu-ray are tricked out with never-before-seen bonus features including “Capturing Speed: Making An Authentic Car Movie,” where fans can go behind the wheel for an up-close look at what it took to capture the movie’s intense car stunts on camera, and Need For Speed™ Rivals trailer. Exclusive to Blu-ray are additional must-own bonus features including an audio commentary with director Scott Waugh and Aaron Paul, Monarch & Maverick outtakes featuring stars Michael Keaton and Scott Mescudi cutting loose, four deleted scenes with introductions by director Scott Waugh, B-Camera crash compilation with intro by director Waugh and more revealing featurettes. In “Ties that Bind,” meet the Gilbert family, four generations of professional stuntmen, who turned the Mustang hero car’s astonishing “grasshopper” jump over four lanes of traffic into a family affair. In “The Circus is in Town,” experience the Need For Speed traveling road show as the movie films from one end of the country to the other. Finally, discover how the movie’s stunning soundscape helps put the audience in the driver’s seat by recording “car bys,” accelerations, donuts, skids -- and the "gnarly" signature sound of the hero Mustang - in “The Sound Of Need For Speed.”
