With eight movies in the bag and over $5 billion in the bank I think it’s safe to say that the Fast and Furious franchise has been a huge (and probably unexpected) success. So in normal Hollywood fashion you gotta gave a spin-off, right?
The first of probably several offshoot films dropped its first trailer and lets just say it looks to be fully embracing the outrageous action and overall absurdity the series has become known for. That’s a good thing. “Hobbs and Shaw” thrusts Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham into the spotlight and there looks to be no shortage of big set pieces and goofy humor. Oh, and Idris Elba as the baddie? I’m in.
“Hobbs and Shaw” lands August 2nd. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing this sure-fire box office hit.
