The second trailer for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw has arrived. Announced shortly after The Fate of the Furious hit theaters two years ago, Hobbs & Shaw brings the titular characters (Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw) together for an adventure of their own. Johnson and Statham’s onscreen chemistry in Fate of the Furious was part of the inspiration for the spinoff to begin with, so it’s only fitting that the Hobbs & Shaw marketing has played up the relationship (bromance, romance – you decide) between the pair in the film.
Written by Fast & Furious scribe Chris Morgan and directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2), Hobbs & Shaw pits its hot-headed leads against Brixton (Idris Elba), a mercenary terrorist who’s been genetically enhanced to have (quite literally) bullet-proof skin. Universal showed off some fresh material from the movie earlier this month at CinemaCon, including clips of Brixton calling himself the “black Superman” and waging a massive battle with Hobbs and his brothers on their home turf in Hawaii. Now, some/most of that footage has been made available in the form of a new trailer.
Universal has dropped the latest Hobbs & Shaw trailer online, ahead of its premiere in theaters with (most likely) Avengers: Endgame next week. You can check it out in the space below.
