The upcoming Peter Bogdanovich relationship comedy 'She’s Funny That Way' features quite an ensemble: Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Kathryn Hahn, Will Forte, Rhys Ifans, and Jennifer Aniston. But if the writer-director had his druthers, the long-lingering project would have starred the late John Ritter. Learn more and watch the exclusive trailer.
As you might expect for a film called “Need for Speed,” there is plenty of testosterone to go around. Male cast members — Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Scott Mescudi, Rami Malek, and Ramon Rodriguez — share the majority of screen time and love flexing their muscle cars. However, there is one leading lady in the mix who holds her own: Imogen Poots (“That Awkward Moment”), who proves not just an independent and attractive young woman, but one who knows her way around an engine.
In addition to its pretty, young cast — which includes "Breaking Bad" alum Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, and Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi — the major selling point to "Need for Speed" is watching a bunch of really fast and extraordinarily expensive cars zip around on the big screen. Car aficionados will instantly appreciate the aerodynamics on display, but what if you know nada about cars and still want to be a part of the conversation? We can all talk about cars... and we can certainly all make car noises. When asked to demonstrate their best car noises using a fancy and detailed toy vehicle (read: plastic rig purchased at a drug store), everyone was game save for Paul, who turned the proposal back on us (we made the car noises while he drove the toy car around his lap).
Start your engines, the “Need for Speed” trailer is here, and it’s filled with chills, spills, tire-screeching awesomeness, Aaron Paul (from “Breaking Bad”) speaking in a grizzled, low voice. In addition to the high octane action presented in the new footage, Yahoo Movies recently spent some time with Paul and director Scott Waugh to find out what makes “Need for Speed” such a unique action movie: practical effects and stunts.
