Michael Bay's New Trailer for Need for Speed: The Run is… Awesome, Actually

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.

Is that wrong that I actually enjoy Michael Bay movies? It's not like I'm paying to watch a Cult session, so I kinda forgive poor writing (and sometimes even bad acting) just to see awesome special effects.

I'm not that hyped about this game not an die-hard fan of NFS anymore, didn't played a good release after NFS:Underground 2... but if this turn out into a movie someday, I'm sold.
