As Need for Speed releases before Fast and Furious 7, critics speculate that the video game-inspired film adaptation starting Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) might beat the hit action movie franchise at the box office.

Kurt Russell Plays Father Figure to Paul Walker in Fast and Furious 7?

It seems like both films will be racing to the finish, and some publications believe that Need for Speed might actually be the next Fast and the Furious and might also be more realistic than the decade old franchise. The reasons for the anticipated popularity of the film have been attributed to Aaron Paul's fame post-Breaking Bad and the huge fan following of the video game.

Need for Speed is poised for a Mar. 14 release whereas Fast and Furious 7 is still without a definite release date and filming is still underway.

Teaser for One of Paul Walker's Last Films, Brick Mansions, Revealed.

Need for Speed has been adapted from the popular series of the Electronic Arts video game by writers George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau) and Academy Award nominee John Gatins (DreamerCoach Carter). Need for Speed has been directed by Scott Waugh (Act of Valor).

Paul plays Tobey Marshall, a street car racer who has recently been released from prison for a crime he did not commit. Once out of prison, Marshall is set for a cross-country race. He is also out to avenge his wrongful incrimination. Imogen Poots will play Julie Bonet, Marshall's love interest in the film.

The trailer, which features a bunch of speedy car chases, races, explosions, and cop encounters, focuses on Paul -- with a few glimpses of Poots -- as his voice-over teases the plot of the film:

"They took everything from me. I did not fear for you are with me. All those who defied me shall be ashamed and disgraced, those who wage war against me shall perish. I will find strength and guidance, and I will triumph."

Need for Speed is scheduled to release on Mar. 14 2014.
