We've already seen the hero car Ford Mustang and had a sneak peek, but now we've got the first official trailer for Dreamworks' Need for Speed movie. Stop us if you've heard the story before: guy gets double-crossed by rich associate, goes to jail, gets out of jail, seeks revenge. There's your movie.

As far as any commonality with the video game, well, you've got a lot of really fast cars doing what they were designed to do, being chased by a lot of really angry cops – and an Army troop transport chopper – doing what they were designed to do. And that's really the entire point.

When the movie arrives in theaters in March of 2014, it will also give you a chance to see another side of Jesse from Breaking Bad. In fact, you'll get to see both versions of Aaron Paul side-by-side this Sunday when the trailer for NFS debuts on television during the series finale of Breaking Bad. You can check it out a bit earlier on the web below, and it will all make sense. Kind of.

      hmm... something about this just doesn\'t work for me. Maybe its the cliche action scenes with unrealistic accidents and the useless girlfriend who\'s only capable of looking cute and getting hurt. Plus I realize I\'ve grown out of Need For Speed. I\'ll rent it from Redbox just to support Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad--yeah!!), see the cool cars, and see if the useless girlfriend can at least throw a punch or burn some rubber of her own.

        Aaron Paul is the reason I'm curious. I'd like to see him in other roles, but I'm not sure 'tough guy' should be one of them.

      If the games of need for speed are terrible, how can you expect the movie to be any better. Honestly EA do us a favor and let Gran Turismo and Forza have Porsche. I am getting tired of their stupidity, EA has lost its grooves.

      It'll be worth the $1 Redbox rental.

      An Army chopper wouldn't have a N-number (civilian registration) on it. Accuracy FAIL. BTW, Landings.com says N561SC is a Sikorsky S-61A, built in 1964, and owned by Sky Cats Puma Corp, of Billings, Montana.

        Does it really matter? I rather see a military chopper being used and tax payers money used to better causes and just get a clone. Now get to da chopppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppper!

          Only in that's it's blatantly obvious. Warbirds usually carry an N-number, but make it very small so it's not so noticeable.

      There's money in those hills. Fast and the Furious paved the way. Plenty of noobs are into Need for Speed. A built in audience. Should be the next great franchise, if handled properly...... BD
