TV & FILM
brian-mcgee - April 19, 2019
If you're getting sick and tired of Marvel and Star Wars giving you elusive trailers that are full of footage but reveal nothing of the plot, allow me to introduce the second trailer for the clumsily named Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw which gives you pretty much the entire plot of the film in three and a half minutes.
Like any good franchise, you need your spin-off movies, and rather than give the audience a pairing nobody wanted to see like Tyrese Gibson and Michelle Rodriguez, they gave us Hobbs & Shaw. Teaming up The Rock Johnson with Jason Statham is enough to sell a movie all on its own, but when you add in the Fast & Furious connection, this thing's basically a license to print money.
Who doesn't want to see two of our baldest actors go toe-to-toe without Vin Diesel sticking his big ugly mug in the middle of it. Instead we get an all new villain in the form of Idris Elba, the man who joins Clive Owen in the exclusive club of actors who would've made a great James Bond but will never get the chance. The flick's also got a great director in the form of John Wick, Atomic Blonde, and Deadpool 2 helmer David Leitch, so there's kinda no way this won't be great.
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw drives into theaters on August 2.
