Universal Pictures has released a new trailer Hobbs & Shaw, the upcoming Fast & Furious spinoff.
I’m not even a “Fast & Furious” guy, but I need this movie injected into my veins. You know how trailers usually have one big “trailer moment” highlighting the coolest bit from the movie? This trailer is all trailer moments. And what’s more, it manages to be captivating without dumb lines like “Fambly is the most important thing.” Instead, it just has them being with their families! What a concept! It is incredibly likely that when this movie comes out, Dwayne Johnson will have successfully stolen the Fast & Furious franchise from Vin Diesel. It’s going to be hilarious.
Check out the trailer below. Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw team up for director David Leitch (Deadpool 2, John Wick) for a script by Chris Morgan, the franchise’s screenwriting architect since Tokyo Drift. Also starring Vanessa Kirby as Deckard’s sister Hattie, Idris Elba as Brixton, the film’s flamethrower-wielding villain, and perhaps Helen Mirren returning as Magdalene Shaw, Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters on August 2, 2019.
Scope out the new trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw:
After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
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 blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.
Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film is produced by Morgan, Johnson, Statham and Hiram Garcia. The executive producers are Kelly McCormick, Dany Garcia, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith and Ainsley Davies.
