New trailer for NFS: The Run features The Black Keys

In conjunction with the release of The Black Keys’ new single “Lonely Boy,” EA has put out a pretty stellar trailer for Need for Speed: The Run that features the new track. The trailer does a pretty good job of showing off the new action movie-esque direction that EA Black Box is taking the series in. It shows off main character Jack Rourke running around, getting arrested and crashing into other cars.

“Lonely Boy” fits perfectly alongside the trailer, but maybe that’s just me being a ginormous Black Keys fan. Mix The Black Keys with your racing game powered by the beautiful Frostbite 2.0 engine and you’ve got me instantly sold. Even though November is a huge month with monster titles releasing left and right, Need for Speed: The Run is now set firmly on my radar. Who else plans to check it out November 15th?

Christina Hendricks, Sean Faris star in NFS: The Run

Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and Sean Faris (Vampire Diaries) will star in the upcoming EA racing game Need for Speed The Run.

Hendricks plays Joan Harris in the hit AMC drama Mad Men, and now she makes her videogame debut in Need for Speed The Run as Sam Harper, a driver manager. Sean Faris (The Vampire Diaries, Never Back Down), will play driver Jack Rourke in Need for Speed The Run.

I’ve definitely done my share of intense action scenes in movies but it’s totally different and thrilling to actually be a character and driver in Need for Speed The Run. I got a kick out of seeing myself in the game, it’s totally me! I’m a huge fan of the Need for Speed series so I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of the game,” said Sean Faris.

Need for Speed The Run will be available November 15, 2011


Adidas and EA team up on ‘NFS: The Run’-ning shoe

Electronic Arts and Adidas collaborated to produce 100 pair of shoes tied into Need for Speed: The Run. The shoes, beyond an NFS detail, look like they were discovered in some box at the back of the Adidas warehouse, intended as a promo piece for the 1992 Spike Lee joint Malcolm X.

“Our goal with Need for Speed is to be more than just a video game franchise, as we view ourselves as a leader in youth and automotive culture as well,” said Kevin Maher, senior director of marketing at EA, as our eyes widened at the hubris.

The first 50 pair of shoes will be available at the Adidas Originals Chicago store on October 10, with another 50 available at the San Francisco store on October 22. The first to purchase the shoes will be invited to “exclusive kick-off” events at the stores a few days later.
