That joke was totally fair game.
Even though we had recently seen pictures off of the set of Need for Speed, we had yet to see a trailer…until now.
Moving on, the movie features
Jesse Pinkman Aaron Paul as the lead, who is called Tobey Marshall. Marshall just happens to be your average car mechanic…who has a slight penchant for vehicular racing. However, this interest in racing eventually gets him into some trouble and he is subsequently back-stabbed by Dominic Cooper‘s Dino Brewster (who plays an ex-NASCAR driver).
Marshall is unjustly sent to prison as a result for manslaughter (damn!). When he is eventually freed, Marshall goes on the obligatory “I-must-get-my-revenge!” journey, but little does he know that that said journey might actually result in him gaining redemption versus clinching revenge.
Obviously, the comparisons to the Fast and Furious franchise are going to be there (I thought about saying something, but it would’ve be too easy), but by the look of the trailer, it seems that it’s going to be a tad bit more serious than the aforementioned franchise. And if that’s the case, I see no reason why both franchises couldn’t exist at the same time and be just as awesome, while drawing on their different strengths.
You can see the trailer for yourself below:
Anyways, in addition to a cast that already includes
Jesse Pinkman Aaron Paul, Kid Cudi, Dakota Johnson, and Dominic Cooper, we should also expect to see Micheal Keaton, Imogen Poots, Rami Malek and Ramon Rodriguez. Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) also helmed this project.
Personally, I’m excited to see Aaron Paul in his various upcoming projects (i.e. Exodus), especially as Breaking Bad is coming to a close. He previously appeared in a critically acclaimed, independent drama called Smashed; so the guy definitely knows how to pick them.
But, I want to hear from you guys. What do you think about the trailer and how likely are you to see this movie? Let me know in the comments below!
