Take A Look At Two New Need For Speed Images
Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper & Dakota Johnson get pictured

Following the brief sneak peak released at E3 Expo in June (find it lurking at the bottom of the page), here come the first two official images from Need For Speed, which finds Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul and Captain America’s Dominic Cooper locked in a racing rivalry.

The film follows Tobey Marshall (Paul), a street racer who goes into business with rich, arrogant car supplier Dino (Cooper), only to find himself framed when another friend dies during a race. 
 
Sent to jail, Marshall wants revenge so, once released, signs on for a cross-country race for a chance to strike back.

But Dino learns about the scheme and puts a bounty on his head, forcing Tobey to go up against various illegal drivers in powerful vehicles. Michael Keaton is the reclusive, oddball host of the event who invites the best racers from around the world to compete. Also in the cast are Imogen Poots (as an exotic car dealer who connects rich clients with supercharged rides), Rami Malek, Kid Cudi, Ramon Rodriguez and Harrison Gilbertson.

Now we also know how Johnson, who has just been cast in 50 Shades Of Grey, factors in: ''Dominic is kind of the antagonist of the film,'' Paul tells EW. ''Dakota is my character's ex, and now Dominic's character is the new guy she's seeing.'' Ouch. Sounds like things really won't be too friendly on that front.

Need For Speed roars into cinemas on March 14 next year.
