Final Hobbs & Shaw trailer: Big muscles and bigger stunts make an action dream team
We learned this week that Fast & Furious 9 is already being filmed, although as we know, Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson will be missing in action as their spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw takes centre stage this summer. Compared to where the FF franchise has gone since its relatively humble beginnings, it left little option for this film but to carry on the barmy, OTT stunts that have now become a key part of the Fast universe. The Stath and The Rock are a good pairing and combined with Leitch's sharp eye for action, this could be one of the best blockbusters of the year. Watch the final trailer for Hobbs & Shaw above to get a last look.
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs, a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw, a former British military elite operative, first faced off, 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 gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever – and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent, 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.
David Leitch (Deadpool 2, John Wick and Atomic Blonde) directs, with the supporting cast starring Idris Elba, Eiza González, Vanessa Kirby, Helen Mirren and Eddie Marsan.
Hobbs & Shaw roll into UK cinemas on August 1 and a day later in the US.
