You already know that the upcoming Need for Speed movie will feature cars. But did you know it will also have drama? The first trailer for the film takes a surprisingly serious tone, making it not-too-difficult to imagine this as some weird car-related side story for Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul). Of course, that tone is immediately negated when the title card pops up. It is called Need for Speed, after all.

      I find it very difficult to disconnect Aaron Paul from Jesse at the moment.

        if he survives next week, we'll call this his sequel.

      Paul's appearance doesn't radiate anywhere near the gravitas that voice-over was aiming for. The whole thing looks like a joke.

          No offense to him, but he just looks like a typical skinny white guy. That's not necessarily a negative (Edward Norton would fall into the same category, and he's a spectacular actor), but it does make him more or less ideal for certain roles.

      Seems like the voice over is a little serious for what I'm imagining this movie being. That might be a prejudgment on it being a Need for Speed game movie though.

      None the less, I'm sure Aaron will be fantastic and it looks like it should be an excellent car race/chase movie. Even if that's all it is.
