First Need for Speed movie trailer

Debut trailer for upcoming DreamWorks film based on EA's racing series features Breaking Bad star delivering monologue.

The first trailer for the upcoming Need for Speed movie from DreamWorks and staring Breaking Bad lead Aaron Paul was released today (via Joblo). The 90-second trailer features Paul delivering a monologue while scenes of fast cars and police chases cycle through.

"They took everything from me. I do not fear, for you are with me," Paul says in the trailer (below). "All those who defied me shall be ashamed and disgraced. Those who wage war against me shall perish. I will find strength, find guidance, and I will triumph."

The Need for Speed movie will be released in theaters on March 14, 2014. It tells the story of a street racer (Paul) who teams up with an arrogant associate (Captain America's Dominic Cooper) only to find himself framed and sent to prison. After leaving the clink, he joins a New York-to-Los Angeles race to score revenge.

Other actors confirmed for the Need for Speed movie include Michael Keaton (Mr. Mom, Batman), hip-hop artist Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi, Ramon Rodriguez (Battle Los Angeles, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen), Rami Malek (Night at the Museum, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2), and Harrison Gilbertson (Beneath Hill 60, Accidents Happen).

Directing the Need for Speed film is Scott Waugh, who is best known for helmingAct of Valor, a military movie starring active-duty US Navy SEALs. Possibly more relevant to the Need for Speed project is Waugh's experience on stunt crews for dozens of films, including Torque, The Italian Job, and Biker Boyz.

Waugh will be filming a screenplay penned by George Gatins, the executive producer of DreamWorks' 2010 comedy She's Out of My League. Gatins developed the Need for Speed film's story with his brother John, who is producing the film and also wrote the scripts for Real Steel and Flight.

This looks like it would be physically painful to watch.

Whoa, wait, wait. If the brother (John) did the script for Real Steel, then I want him as the main screenwriter for this, NOT the comedic writer brother.

Was that really needed? We already had Fast and Furious movies, which are pretty much the same thing but without the NFS brand.

Looks awful. At least the Fast movies have some semblance of plot and character development. Hopefully the movie will be more complete than this patchwork trailer that tells us nothing about the movie.

Not surprised though. Another reason to hate EA.

Don't be surprised if EA makes a game based on the movie.

So in the finale episode of Breaking Bad Jesse Pinkman escapes again, steals one million dollars and becomes a racer?

Looks mediocre at best. Can't say I'm exited by it. If anything it kind of looks like its trying to take pages from Need for Speed The Run with the emphasis on the driver and not really the actual racing. Well lets wait and see how this plays out. Might actually wind up being good.

My interest in driving games is more along the lines of Carmageddon, Rock and Roll Racing, Road Rash, Mario Cart and Motorstorm. 

As far as the straight shiny car games. It always seemed to me that the intro scenes with the good camera angles and elevator music had much more of an epic feeling the the actual driving did. If they just made a 2 hour intro scene I would think that would suffice for me lol.

As far as movie trailers based on video games go, this looks pretty good.

Obviously the title seems a little silly for a movie, but they need to keep it for brand awareness.

Not for me. He is good in breaking bad but don't feel he would be great to carry a movie solo. Someone like Gosling would have been better.
