The second big movie trailer that was played during the Super Bowl XLVIII commercials was that of "Need For Speed" starring Aaron Paul. There wasn't a whole lot of plot detail in the Super Bowl trailer that premiered on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014, but there was a lot of action and some really, really fast cars flying on the ground and through the air.
What is known from past info and the first trailer last year is that this is a revenge tale. That and some more plot adds up to some serious race sequences that are sure to have you on the edge of your seat and gripping your armrests.
In the Super Bowl trailer, it is a short and high-tensity ride through the streets in numerous vehicles, but that doesn't seem to be enough for the star, Aaron Paul.
Official synopsis for "Need For Speed":
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.
"Need For Speed" stars Aaron Paul, Michael Keaton, Kid Cudi, Dakota Johnson, Imogen Poots, and Dominic Cooper. It is set to hit theaters on Mar. 14, 2014.
