Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction. Tobey tears up the road in a gritty cross-country journey— one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption.
Here’s the thing: I couldn’t care less about car racing or this Need for Speed movie. The last time I played Need for Speed the video game for any significant length of time was in grade 9 when I played Need for Speed 2. But damnit, they cast Aaron Paul, and since I’ve fallen in utter actorly-man-love with the guy thanks to Breaking Bad, I’ll probably end up seeing this movie just because of him.
Need for Speed comes out March 14, 2014.
