First Need for Speed trailer has Aaron Paul in a Veyron

Hyper cars, cop chases and explosions on the menu

The first trailer for the upcoming Need for Speed movie has been released, featuring Breaking Bad star Paul Aaron in races with a number of exotic cars.

The Hollywood adaptation of EA's popular racing franchise was 'fast tracked' for a 2014 release in June of last year, with Scott Waugh (Act of Valor) attached as director. The trailer narrows that release to March.

Michael Keaton, formally of Batman and Beetlejuice fame, will play in the movie as the "reclusive and eccentric host of an underground supercar race where he invites the best drivers from around the world", according to earlier reports.


Aaron and Keaton join Dominic Cooper, who recently played Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger.

At the time of the movie's announcement, DreamWorks chairman Steven Spielberg said he was "excited about getting back into the creative trenches with John and George Gatins and my partners at EA to bring to life an exhilarating script based on an epic video game that seems to have been made for the movies".
