The brand new trailer for Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw has arrived and stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are promising one hell of muscular film that is packed out with adrenaline and sure to get audiences amped.
Check out the full trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Noted action director David Leitch (Deadpool 2, Atomic Blonde) has dialed the action up to 11 here and the result is one insane rush. Packed out with exotic locations, fast cars, perfect one-liners and plenty of whup ass, Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw is trading up on the franchises heist action and takes us straight into a brand new sleek spy thriller.
Johnson and Statham make the perfect odd-couple as Hobbs & Shaw and when they are forced to team up the action kicks and the animosity kicks into high gear as they manage to throw a barrage of insults at one another while their pummeling the hell out of the bad guys.
These two bruisers won’t be going it alone completely though as Deckard’s rebellious sister and MI6 operative Hattie (Vanessa Kirby) joins in on the mission and all three of them will be in for one hell of a fight against terrorist leader Brixton (Idris Elba), a one-man wrecking ball who has subjected himself to intense gene therapy in order to become a stronger more fearsome threat and Idris really goes for it here.
The film is packed to the brim with action, with machine guns going off, cars smashing up, and fist fights ensuing, but if the trailer has a signature moment then it has to be a sleek truck slide courtesy of Statham’s Shaw as he glides his McLaren 720S underneath a semi-truck via a high speed chase through the streets of London!
Get ready for all kinds of epic vehicular action when Fast and Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw arrives in cinemas on August 1.
