WATCH: Need For Speed movie gets a trailer

September 25th, 2013 by Marc Comments

So it’s Aaron Paul’s first big post-Breaking Bad project, and it’s a video game movie. Based on the popular video games of the same title, in the movie Paul plays Toby Marshall, a man who joins a cross country car race to exact revenge on those who set him up to take the fall for a crime he didn’t commit. Yes, you read that right, we all know the best way to get at your enemies is to race them, sort of like in a dance competition movie, but with cars. Though the movie does seem to be a bit heavy on the Fast & Furious influence, of course how could any fast car race movie featuring import cars not garner that comparison, the makers of the film are stating it actually borrows from the popular 70’s car chase movies such as Bullitt. Here’s the trailer, judge for yourself.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
