This new trailer for Need for Speed: The Run was directed by none other than Mr. Bad Boys himself, Michael Bay. It's got cars, and racing, and quickquickquick cuts!

It does not, unfortunately, do that thing where a guy stands there while the camera spins around him. What the fuck, Bay? EA paid you a ton of money, and you can't even bring your A-game?

But okay, yeah. This is a pretty damned exciting trailer, as video game trailers go. Who knew? The only thing standing between Michael Bay and "something watchable" was the complete removal of any actual human beings.
