First look at the Emmy-winning "Breaking Bad" actor as an action star
Following major Xbox and Playstation announcements, another high-profile videogame-related project was unveiled at the E3 Expo: the first look at Aaron Paul driving fast and furious in DreamWorks' theatrical "Need for Speed."
The "Breaking Bad" star plays a street racer fresh out of prison after being framed by a wealthy business associate in the adaptation of the popular Electronic Arts racing game franchise.
With revenge in mind, Paul joins a cross-country race. But when his ex-partner learns of his plan, he places a massive bounty on his head as the race begins.
The high-octane glimpse of the street-racing thriller isn't a trailer, though. It's a behind-the-scenes featurette that focuses on showcasing how cameras caught all the action on the road, while director Scott Waugh ("Act of Valor") promises an "accurate and authentic" portrayal of "real car-racing culture."
Whether audiences want another movie that looks so similar to the "Fast & Furious" franchise, it looks like Paul had a blast getting paid to drive a souped-up Ford Mustang as fast as possible.
The action movie debuts in theaters on March 14 next year. Here's what to expect:
