'Need For Speed' Super Bowl Spots Burn Rubber

Published by

Need for Speed
Though Need for Speed may not have the same big budget pull of some of the other Super Bowl spots, it suggests an action movie that has mind-blowing practical effects and stunts (remember those?), and fills the hole that was left by Fast and Furious 7, which has been moved into 2015. Now there's two new spots for the film, and they're great.

Smashed – Aaron Paul and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (TOP)
It's not often that we see female characters in love with booze. In film, men dominate that archetype. But director James Ponsoldt, who co-wrote Smashed with actress Susan Burke, gave Mary Elizabeth Winstead the chance to play a woman with a heavy drinking problem. She's joined by a fantastic set of players including Aaron Paul, Octavia Spencer, Nick Offerman and...

Another solid film coming out of Sundance, Smashed is one of those films that may seem like "just another Sundance film" but has enough twists and interesting dynamics that is seperates it from the pack.

The cast includes the talented...
