Wasn’t expecting a whole lot from Need for Speed, the film adaptation of the popular Electronic Arts racing game, but it actually turned out to be quite good! It stays true to the spirit of the game, but is grounded in solid emotional drama by the fine acting of the effortlessly likeable Aaron Paul. The trailer makes it seem like your run-of-the-mill revenge-racing movie, but it surprisingly had much more substance than it initially let on. Director Scott Waugh deliberately kept to practical effects for the majority of stunts in the film to give it that extra layer of realism, which certainly added to the film’s excitement. Full review to follow, but I would definitely recommend seeing Need for Speed when it comes out in March. It’s a fun popcorn flick that is equal parts entertaining, exciting and dramatic.
A LONG WAY DOWN
Based on the book by Nick Hornby, A Long Way Down stars Pierce Brosnan, Aaron Paul, Toni Collette and Imogen Poots as four suicidal strangers who meet on a London rooftop during New Year’s Eve. The dark comedy’s screenplay is being penned by D.V. DeVincentis, who also wrote the film adaptation of Hornby’s High Fidelity. A Long Way Down plops into UK theaters in March 2014.

NEED FOR SPEED
Apparently Aaron Paul just can’t stop breaking bad. He stars in the film adaptation of the popular video game series Need for Speed, alongside Dominic Cooper, Michael Keaton, Imogen Poots and Kid Cudi. Paul will play an ex-convict who seeks revenge after being framed by a former partner. The trailer doesn’t reveal much, but it does set the tone for the Scott Waugh-directed film. Waugh, whose first feature-length film was last year’s Navy SEALs flick Act of Valor, also has some experience doing stunts for high octane flicks like Torque and The Italian Job. Need for Speed zooms into theaters in March 2014.
