Need for Speed
Aaron Paul and Dakota Johnson




Overview -
A mechanic who moonlights as an underground race-car driver strives to take the top prize in America's most prominent street race in order to have his revenge against the ambitious ex-NASCAR champ who had him framed and sent to prison. Inspired by the popular video-game franchise of the same name, NEED FOR SPEED tells the story of garage owner Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul). Desperate to keep his family-owned business afloat, Marshall forms an uncomfortable partnership with wealthy ex-NASCAR star Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). That partnership falls apart when a lucrative sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poots) fails to pan out, and unscrupulous Brewster uses a tragic street-racing mishap to have the innocent Marshall incarcerated. Released from prison two years later, the vengeful Marshall plots to prove his mettle by winning the De Leon -- an illicit race showcasing the country's top underground talents. But getting to the De Leon will be no simple task, because not only has the ruthless Brewster put a bounty on Marshall's prized car, but the police are hot on his trail during the white-knuckle, coast-to-coast dash. Fortunately for Marshall, his loyal crew and Bonet are willing to help him get to the starting line in time for the big race. Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi, Ramon Rodriguez, and Michael Keaton co-star.

Reviews:
"The action sequences are spectacular, and staged with a minimum of digital fakery." - 03/13/2014 Wall Street Journal


"The best parts of NEED FOR SPEED are the actual racing and chasing sequences -- a true thrill ride for the audience as the story unfolds." - 03/13/2014 Chicago Sun-Times


"Its first and best racing sequence -- set at night on the twisty streets of a small town -- is a minor triumph of old-school craft..." - 03/13/2014 A.V. Club


"[With] a tailor-made role for the sly, inventive and chronically underrated Keaton, and he does much to guide NEED FOR SPEED ably across the finish line." - 03/11/2014 Variety


"When Aaron Paul’s Tobey Marshall is behind the wheel -- and a crew of stuntmen are wreaking some refreshingly non-CG automotive havoc -- director Scott Waugh’s movie is a blast." - 03/12/2014 Hollywood Reporter
