Need For Speed tops the Irish box office in opening weekend

Need For Speed topped the Irish box office in its opening weekend, grossing €109,000 between the 14th and 16th March. The film pushed The Lego Movie (€97,000) from the top spot and opened ahead of The Grand Budapest Hotel (€92,000). 

Fresh from prison, framed for a crime he didn’t commit, street racer Tobey Marshall (Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul), is hell bent on settling the score.

With revenge at the forefront of his mind, he gears up for the ultimate cross-country race heaving with adrenaline-charged muscle machines and high-octane super cars. When his powerful rival (Dominic Cooper – The Devil’s Double) places a massive bounty on his head, the wheels are set in motion and the race is finally on.

Based on the most successful racing game franchise of all time, bursting with explosive action and exhilarating stunts, NEED FOR SPEED accelerated into cinemas on March 12th.
