By Chelsea Lewis ,

Aaron Paul's latest project, Need for Speed, will be heading into the theaters soon in the U.S. and is also set for a wide release in China.

Need for Speed will be opening in China on March 14 and will be shown in 2D and 3D screenings, Variety reported.

3D films have become very popular over in China and large format theaters such as IMAX have been drawing in box office numbers. The action film will be distributed by Huaxia Film Distribution and China Film Group.

Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug has been doing very well overseas and in China. The second film in the The Hobbit trilogy is playing on over 4,000 screens in China.

Need for Speed also stars Dakota Johnson, Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots and Domenic Cooper, Fan Sided reported.

More American films have been getting a Chinese release. Despicable Me 2 recently opened to screens in China with a huge response from fans and at the box office.

Variety's sources also said that Black Coal, Thin Ice will be released on March 21. The Chinese film won the top prize at the Berlin film Festival last month.
