The final official trailer has arrived for upcoming Fast & Furious spinoff movie Hobbs & Shaw, and boy does this thing look nuts.
Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their titular roles in a film that finds them forced to team again to take on a cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist (Idris Elba). Shaw’s sister, Hattie (Vanessa Kirby, The Crown), is also along for the ride.
There’s more action shown off in the new trailer, including a crazy sequence that ends with Elba’s Brixton flying through a bus. The cast is great, the mayhem looks gleefully off the chain, and you’ve got director David Leitch (John Wick, Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde) at the helm. We’re so in.
Hobbs & Shaw, also starring Eiza González, Helen Mirren and Eddie Marsan, speeds into Aussie cinemas on August 1 and hits the US on August 2.
Official extended rundown for 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.
