Statham and Johnson Back In Fast And Furious Spinoff

By Creative Media Times

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for “Hobbs & Shaw”, a spin-off from The Fast and the Furious series which reunites Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s franchise characters Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw respectively.

The trailer is full of over-the-top action, some of which veering into superhero territory, with Hobbs and Shaw’s reluctant partnership resulting in comedic conflict while they chase the villain.

That self proclaimed bad guy here is Idris Elba’s Brixton, a criminal mastermind with destructive super human strength. “I’m dealing with the future of the planet. I’m the necessary shock to the system. I am human evolutionary change, bulletproof, superhuman,” says a menacing Brixton.

A trailer debut for a summer movie of this size is probably more suited to drop at the Super Bowl, so he’s hoping we’ll see another cut this weekend.

Directed by “Deadpool 2” director David Leitch, the film co-stars Vanessa Kirby, Roman Reigns and Helen Mirren.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is set for release this summer an August 2, 2019.
