A street racer framed by a business associate has revenge in mind in Need for Speed, released out now at the Showcase in Bargeddie.

Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, Need for Speed captures the thrills of the game in a real-world setting.

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 car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save the business, a disastrous, unsanctioned race results in Dino framing Tobey for manslaughter.

Now with Tobey out of prison he has revenge on his mind, but Dino has plans of his own.

Need for Speed is rated 12A and runs 130 minutes.
