Here’s the thing, if you’re into all the other Fast & Furious films, you’re going to love Hobbs & Shaw. There is not a variation in the formula in any of the installments. The point is to focus on high-octane action, cheesy humor, and characters that borderline on caricatures. The official trailer released today, following the “countdown” releases of the official logo (See it here) and poster (See it here), doesn’t pretend to be anything but as two popular supporting characters from the main F&F series unite to fight Brixton, a genetically enhanced soldier played by Idris Elba (Essentially like his role in Star Trek Beyond without the make-up). Check out the new trailer below:
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Roman Reigns, Eiza Gonzalez, Eddie Marsan, Cliff Curtis, and Helen Mirren. It is directed by David Leitch and is set to hit theaters August 2nd.
