Fast and Furious expands into the spin-off films with the upcoming Hobbs and Shaw.
The film will unite two fan favorite characters in an action, buddy criminal sort of film where the title characters, played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham respectively, go up against a cybernetic solider, Brixton (Idris Elba). At the center of the conspiracy is Shaw’s sister (Vanessa Kirby) stole a biological weapon from Brixton and now there is war.
What follows is some excellent comedy, some excellent action, and what looks like to be an excellent addition to the Fast and Furious universe. The second trailer shows even more of what made the first trailer so excellent.
Directed by stuntman turned director David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2), the newest trailer shows some insanely fantastic stunts. We see hallway fights, biological weapons, fast cars, and Idris Elba calling himself “black Superman”. (Which, should that casting ever happen, we are here for.)
Through it all, we get some top notch snark for Johnson and Statham, who play really well off each other.
Check out the trailer below.
Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw opens August 2nd.
