The ‘Need For Speed‘ Super Bowl trailer has arrived and it featured a lot of what makes this movie popular: lots of cars, cars drifting, cars racing, cars crashing and lots more cars. We’ve got the extended version of the ‘Need For Speed’ trailer above so you can check out anything you might have missed (more cars).
This new, extended version features an intro from stars Aaron Paul and Kid Cudi, but also features lots of what we previously mentioned before: cars. That’s what made the video game franchise a huge hit and that’s what is going to make this movie (at least Disney and DreamWorks hopes) a hit.
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 Maddon (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. 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’ opens in theaters on March 14.
