Michael Keaton

Official Trailer for “Need For Speed” Arrives

Posted on Updated on

“I feel the need … the need for speed!”

Granted that the above line was spoken by Tom Cruise’s character, Maverick, in the 1986 classic Top Gun, it still feels appropriate to use it to describe the EPIC new trailer for 2014’s Need for Speed, which has just arrived!


Need for Speed stars Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Imogen Poots (Fright Night), Dominic Cooper (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) along with Michael Keaton (1989 Batman) among others (50 Shades of Grey‘s Dakota Johnson is also credited) and is based on the popular “Need for Speed” racing video game franchise published by Electronic Arts.

The film’s synopsis on IMDB reads as follows,

Fresh from prison, a street racer who was framed by a wealthy business associate joins a cross country race with revenge in mind. His ex-partner, learning of the plan, places a massive bounty on his head as the race begins.

The film is directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) and is due for release on March 14, 2014. Check out some stills from the trailer below.
