Universal has released the debut trailer for the upcoming Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw and it’s pretty furious, but not so fast?
Having dropped off of the Fast & Furious franchise after Fast Five I didn’t really care much for this new spin-off, that was until I saw the trailer which has Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham butting heads more than actually racing cars.
I guess Hobbs & Shaw really has nothing to do with the Fast & Furious franchise other than the character names as throughout the trailer we get to see perhaps, one, maybe two cars being driven. That being said, the movie does look pretty good.
Though let’s be real, anything that Johnson touches pretty much turns to gold at this point, right?
Here’s the official synopsis and catch the trailer below:
“Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.”
Hobbs & Shaw hits theatres on August 2, 2019.
