Michael Bay’s addiction for high-octane action and mindless explosions has earned him a reputation as one of Hollywood’s most fascinating directors. For his latest project, Bay is switching genres and stepping into the world of video games, directing the official trailer for Need For Speed: The Run.
While this project was lacking in real-life actors, Bay didn’t seem to have any problems putting his imprint on the trailer. There are cars flying everywhere, helicopters shooting at runaway vehicles, and of course, lots and lots of explosions.
At the end of the day, Bay seems to have done a good job in translating his Hollywood-style directing by turning the trailer into a pulse-pounding, action-packed, two-and-a-half-minute video for the latest installment in the highly-popular Need For Speed franchise.
As a reminder, the game is set to come out November 15, 2011, so if you’re still having second thoughts on making the purchase, this Michael Bay-directed trailer will more than likely sway your decision towards forking over that $50.
