The trailer for the hotly-anticipated Fast & Furious spinoff starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham has just dropped, and it looks… AWESOME. Both of their characters have been surprise game-changers since Johnson’s Luke Hobbs was welcomed into the Fast & Furious pantheon in Fast Five and Statham’s post-credits appearance in Furious 6. Furious Seven and The Fate of the Furious hinted at an explosive mano-a-mano between Hobbs and Shaw. Now, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw finds them antagonistically working together to take down the world’s most dangerous man, a genetically-modified supervillain named Brixton (Idris Elba).
From what we’ve written about the post-Fast Five installments (links are below), you can safely infer that HELL YES WE’RE LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS IN A BIG WAY. Here’s the trailer for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
(We were both relative newcomers when Fast Five came along, which we both reviewed, but the website they were on no longer hosts them.)
