Need for Speed Super Bowl trailer definitely not on cruise control

Well that doesn’t look very much like a video game. The latest trailer for DreamWorks’ big screen fast cars movie Need for Speed premiered during the Super Bowl, and it looks more like a Fast and Furious spin-off than it does an adaptation of Electronic Arts’ hit racing game series. There’s a gun, for starters. The games do many things, but shooting isn’t one of those things.

Put aside the baggage, however, and you’ve got a new look at what looks like a perfectly serviceable racing action movie starring Aaron Paul in his first major post-Breaking Bad appearance. You’ll get to see what he does to differentiate his thuggish racer from his thuggish meth dealer from the now-concluded TV series when Need for Speed hits theaters on March 14.
