Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are joining forces in”Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” (in theaters Aug. 2).
Anticipation for its”Furious” spinoff was high ever since the two stars stole the show since sworn enemies at 2015’s”Furious 7″ and the initial trailer, published Friday, didn’t disappoint. It features all of the explosions and activity connected with the 5 billion franchise.
Johnson’s Luke Hobbs, a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, also enchanting criminal Deckard Shaw (Statham), naturally a rogue former British intelligence officer, dish copious trash talk and furious body blows.
In their new outing, helmed by “Deadpool 2” director David Leitch, Hobbs and Shaw have to combine forces to stop the one person in the universe who might be more badder than them: cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba).

This guy’s a true (expletive),” they say simultaneously, pointing their finger in the other, after being told they have to work together.”
When Shaw argues the hulking Hobbs lacks the finesse and stealth the occupation requires, he coolly retorts,”I’m trying to save the entire world — that, for the album will be my fourth time. Because I’m really good at it.”
Along for the ride: Shaw’s sister Hattie, played by “The Crown” alumna Vanessa Kirby.
And of course, a lot of vehicles and buildings bite the dust as a result of Hobbs and Shaw trying to one-up each other. In 1 standout scene, Shaw chooses to take the elevator while Hobbs rappels down the side of a tower to chase after Brixton after he grabs Hattie and leaps in the top floor.
However, the chemistry that created this duo so eminently watchable in”Furious” is what finally fuels the trailer.
