First Trailer for Aaron Paul's 'Need for Speed' Takes a Cue from the 'Breaking Bad' 'Ozymandias' Trailer

The voice over in Aaron Paul’s Need for Speed trailer has echoes of Bryan Cranston’s reading of “Ozymandias” in a trailer for Breaking Bad before the season began, but one suspects that Need for Speed will not end as grimly as Breaking Bad likely will. I mean, it’s a Hollywood film. They don’t allow that sort of thing. Hell, I understand that in Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake, Josh Brolin marries the axe in the end and they ride off in the sunset.

Anyway, Need for Speed also stars Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper and Michael Keaton, and it’s based on a video game and comes from Act Of Valor director Scott Waugh, so temper your expectations. Aaron Paul may be the most popular guy on television outside of Bryan Cranston right now, but he’s not yet be a Hollywood star. Unfortunately, has to accept scripts accordingly.

    What the hell does he have left to prove to hollywood execs? THIS is the best script he can get? That's gotta be illegal right?

    Yeesh, very dramatic VO for a car racing movie based on a video game. Consider this Paul's big post-BB payoff role and maybe he'll move onto something more fitting his talents.

  • Lee

    can.... anyone already see the the 'NEED FOR METAMPHETAMINE LOL JK' puns on the talk-show promo circuits coming from here already?

    imogen poots though. with bangs!

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Did they smooth the crags out of Paul's face for extra speed?

  • Ryan Ambrose

    That... Was surprisingly intriguing, even if it's coming from a racing franchise whose "story arcs" make Fast & Furious seem like Kubrick.

    As long as Aaron Paul doesn't have the same agent as Timothy Olyphant then I'm sure he will have a great career in Hollywood.

    I forgot this movie existed until Cudi talked about it at his show the other night. That trailer is for a movie everyone will forget exists once it comes out on dvd.

  • MikeRoorda

    It's based on the videogame, and by all movie laws that exist and are known to man, that means it will likely tank.

    I mean, that game didn't even really HAVE a story outside of VROOM VROOOOOOM and SCREEEEEEEEEEE*CRASH* so they could literally make any damn thing up and it should fit.

    But it'll be bad.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    I'm pretty sure The Fast and the Furious was unofficially based on Need for Speed, so clearly the source material has potential. Americans love them some vroom screech.

  • Homestar

    I like all the excuses for the fact that this looks kind of dumb. But we will watch it anyway, because Aaron Paul :D

  • pajiba

    Yeah, that's about right.
