If you loved the great car culture films of the ’60s and ’70s, you are going to definitely want to see DreamWorks Pictures’ NEED FOR SPEED! This movie has everything from action out on the open road to a near-impossible cross-country journey for our heroes. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, NEED FOR SPEED taps into that same excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.
Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad fame stars as Tobey Marshall, a blue-collar mechanic who races muscle cars on the side in an unsanctioned street-racing circuit. As he struggles to his family-owned garage from failing, he reluctantly partners with self-centered ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (played by Dominic Cooper). Things start to look up for Tobey and his garage until Dino frames Tobey for a crime he didn’t commit. While Dino expands the business, Tobey is sent off to prison. Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge. The only way to take down Dino is to defeat him in the high-stakes race known as De Leon — the Super Bowl of underground racing!
