With Michael Bay’s Need for Speed The Run trailer nearly unlocked, the fast car franchise has dropped a second veil, releasing a brand new “making of” video for all its racing (and action) fans. The three-minute clip features the king of the car crash hard at work and brings us even more footage of the lovely Christina Hendricks.
Michael Bay is no stranger to Need for Speed; he used to play it as a kid. Of course, that was back before in-game cinematics looked anything like cinema. The footage Bay works with for the trailer is on a completely different level.
“I was very impressed with this Need for Speed crew,” Bay says, discussing the game’s polished cutscenes, “They have a very filmic look to their stuff, [and they’re] very good at their directional camera work.”
Check out the rest of the interview, plus comments from actress Christina Hendricks, in the video below:
