New Need For Speed Trailer Screeches In
More of Aaron Paul and very fast cars, yo

Aaron Paul's first big gig since Breaking Bad broke up is video game adaptation Need For Speed. We've already seen one trailer, but here comes the second, just around the bend.

 

This time there are more stunts, more races and more details on how the plot will actually work. There's also more time spent chuckling at quite a restrained 'Yo mama!' joke than we ever thought possible. Also, this boasts lots of Michael Keaton in glorious yellow shades, which more trailers should think about adding. 

In case you didn't pick up on the set-up, here's a quick summary: Need For Speed sees Aaron Paul as Tobey Marshall, a street racer who goes into business with rich, arrogant car supplier pal Dino (Dominic Cooper), only to find himself framed when another friend dies during a race. Sent to jail, Marshall wants revenge and, once released, signs on for a cross-country race for a chance to strike back.

Then 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), Rami Malek, Kid Cudi, Ramon Rodriguez and Harrison Gilbertson.

Need For Speed is out on March 14, 2014.

Gonna be difficult not to see him as Jessie!!!! He went through nearly every range of emotions in Breaking Bad and Kudos to his prowess as an actor, but now its gonna be a huge accomplishment to make us believe he's anyone else. More
