Fast cars, hot babes, a tortured leading man -- no, this isn't another "Fast & Furious" or even "Drive," but rather "Need For Speed," a video-game adaptation starring Aaron Paul.

"The Breaking Bad" star is riding high these days (despite not winning a deserved third Emmy this week). Now that the acclaimed series is almost over, Paul is moving into films, including this underground racing drama from director Scott Waugh.
The "Need For Speed" trailer (below) lays out the bones of the story: Paul's blue-collar mechanic is framed for a crime by a rich ex-NASCAR driver (Dominic Cooper). When he gets out of prison, Paul is hell-bent on getting revenge via a dangerous race that involves a lot of explosions, overturned cars, and sexy sidekicks in the passenger seat.
"They took everything from me," Paul growls, looking very Jesse Pinkman-esque.
"Need For Speed" also stars Dakota Johnson (aka Anastasia Steele from "Fifty Shades of Grey"), Imogen Poots, Kid Cudi, Ramon Rodriguez, and Michael Keaton. It revs into theaters March 14, 2014.
