There's a scene in Need For Speed, Hollywood's latest auto epic, where stars Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots are sitting in a car that's hanging from a helicopter. (Yes, it's that kind of movie).

Terrified, they end up having a nonsensical argument over whose eyes are bluer.

"My eyes are bluer!"

"No, MINE are bluer!"

There's no need to fight, kids! Both of you have very blue eyes. More importantly, you're both becoming big-time.

Opening here tomorrow, Need For Speed is an adaptation of the popular video game series. Paul, 34, plays Tobey Marshall, a mechanic who vows revenge against the baddie (Dominic Cooper) who killed his best friend during a race.

He plans to settle things on the track, but first he needs a hot car, which is where Poots, 24, comes in.

She plays Julia Maddon, a car nut whose boss lends Tobey a souped-up Mustang.
