The action film, helmed by Scott Waugh and based on the popular Electronic Arts video game series, features Paul as a street racer who was recently released from prison and is seeking revenge. Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Rami Malek, Kid Cudi, Dakota Johnson and Michael Keaton also star.
The trailer follows a few hyped teasers, one of which aired during the "Breaking Bad" September finale. It also comes at a convenient time for the LA Auto Show, which starts this Friday at the Los Angeles Convention Center and runs through Dec. 1.
Paul's "Breaking Bad" co-star Bryan Cranston also excited the internet recently when a fake alternate ending of the AMC hit, which saw him reprise his "Malcolm in the Middle" role. However, that bit was an extra feature of the upcoming "Breaking Bad" DVD box set and Sony quickly pulled it from the web.
"Need for Speed" hits theaters March 14, 2014.
