An exclusive look at the upcoming film Need for Speed, which stars Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, will air on Sunday, February 2, 2014, during Super Bowl XLVIII, according to DreamWorks Pictures, who has also released a video promo for the Super Bowl ad. You can watch that video, which includes clips from the film presented by stars Aaron Paul and Scott Mescudi, here below.
Once the spot airs on FOX television on Sunday night, an extended version will be released online.
DreamWorks Pictures also released a new image today from the film of Aaron Paul, which you can see here below.
At first glance, Scott Waugh‘s (Act of Valor) Need For Speed might look like a terrible carbon copy of one of the installments of the Fast and Furious franchise. But upon closer look, that may not be the case.
Aaron Paul plays Tobey Marshall, a mechanic who participates in an underground racing event that results in one of his closest friends getting killed. After being released from his jail sentence, he rallies his old crew to get revenge on Dino (Dominic Cooper), the person who put him in jail and killed his best friend. But the only way to do that is by getting back behind the wheel of a souped up car and participating in a race that stretches across multiple state lines.
A new trailer for the movie has been released, and you can see it below.
