As if you needed reminding how both beautiful and badass the cast of Hobbs & Shaw is, new character posters have just been released which really get the point across. In them, we see stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham (who are of course reprising their roles as Hobbs and Shaw, respectively), along with Vanessa Kirby as Shaw’s sister Hattie, and Idris Elba as the villain known as Brixton. Everyone looks super sharp, maybe even especially Kirby and Elba, although everyone is working that lewk.
Universal Picture’s Fast & Furious spinoff seems like a lot of bonkers fun, smartly taking advantage of the chemistry between Johnson and Statham’s characters and augmenting it into what could be a perfect summer action flick. As Adam Chitwood describes in our article on the first trailer for the film: “Officially titled Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, the film finds the titular characters forced to team up in what’s been described as a buddy cop movie with a tone reminiscent of Lethal Weapon and Tango & Cash. Universal tapped Deadpool 2 director and John Wick co-director David Leitch to take the helm,” with Chris Morgan (the architect of the franchise) writing the script.
The film also stars Helen Mirren and is produced by Chris Morgan, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, and Hiram Garcia. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters on August 2nd. Check out the character posters below:
