Universal has released the first official trailer for Hobbs & Shaw, the fun new Fast & Furious "spin-off" movie focusing on the characters in the title - Luke Hobbs (played by Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (played by Jason Statham).
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw will be in theaters August 2.
Regardless, the first trailer for the first spinoff is here just in time to get its fifteen minutes of fame prior, during and after Super Bowl. This movie is the very definition of action.
You have to love that there's so much stuff in Hobbs & Shaw, they actually made an extra-long trailer to show it all.
The trailer for the franchise spin-off Hobbs & Shaw is here, and it is as utterly ridiculous as we expected - and that's what makes it so great. Hobbs must work with Shaw to stop an worldwide terrorist known as Brixton, played by Idris Elba.
Hobbs & Shaw also stars Roman Reigns, Eddie Marsan, Eiza Gonzalez and Helen Mirren. On top of a comic-worthy villain, Hobbs & Shaw looks like it'll contain all of the whimsy of a modern Marvel movie as well-and by Marvel movie we're talking Ragnarok, not Infinity War. The pair have had a rocky relationship ever since Shaw first popped up in Furious 7, and their first meeting resulted in a fist fight and a hospitalization. But it seems like the Fast and Furious franchise's evolution to blockbuster superheroics has finally happened.
Dwayne has been teasing the epic film for months as he's been filming in London and all over the globe.
