Buena Vista Home Entertainment have announced that they will release the movie Need For Speed — which was inspired by the video game racing series of the same name — on DVD, as a DVD/Blu-ray combo pack, and digitally on August 5th.
According to the release, “The story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time — one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. In a last attempt to save his struggling garage, blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul) — who with his team skillfully builds and races muscle cars on the side — reluctantly partners with wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). Just as a major sale to a car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poot) looks like it will save the business, a disastrous, unsanctioned race results in Dino framing Tobey for manslaughter. Two years later and fresh out of prison, Tobey is set on revenge with plans to take down Dino in the high-stakes De Leon race — the Super Bowl of underground racing. To get there in time, Tobey must run a high-octane, action-packed gauntlet, dodging cops coast-to-coast and dealing with fallout from a dangerous bounty Dino put on his car. With his loyal crew and the surprisingly resourceful Julia as allies, Tobey defies odds at every turn and proves that even in the flashy world of exotic supercars, the underdog can still finish first.”
Both the DVD and DVD/Blu-ray combo pack will including the making-of featurette “Capturing Speed: Making An Authentic Car Movie” and a trailer for last year’s game, Need For Speed: Rivals.
In addition, the DVD/Blu-ray combo pack will also come with an audio commentary by Paul and direct Scott Waugh, outtakes and deleted scenes that have introductions by Waugh, a self-explanatory featurette called “The Sound Of Need For Speed,” and two other featurettes called “Ties That Bind” and “The Circus Is In Town.”
