Universal Pictures has released the final trailer for their Fast and Furious spinoff, Hobbs and Shaw. The new footage confirms the return of Helen Mirren as Mama Shaw along with some new action shots including more from the Hobbs family homestead battle, which looks beyond silly.
These movies certainly know what they are and are not, so at least they’re self-aware enough to the point they’re not taking this stuff seriously anymore. Anyways, check out the new trailer and enjoy!
Directed by Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch the supporting cast boasts Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby, Eiza Gonzalez, Eddie Marsan, Roman Reigns, Cliff Curtis, and now Helen Mirren.
After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. 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.
Hobbs and Shaw is set for release on August 2nd.
