Fast and the Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who plays Luke Hobbs in the film, recently took to Twitter to share a brief teaser from the footage, which shows a car being turned on and then powering up. You can check it out below.
While the teaser might not show too much, it does set the vibe for what fans can expect from the spinoff film -- and teases that an official trailer is just three days away.
Hobbs and Shaw will follow Hobbs reluctantly partnering up with Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), as they are tasked with fighting a genetically-enhanced international terrorist named Brixton Lore (Idris Elba).
“We want to create something that was special,” Johnson said during the film's recent CinemaCon panel. “But the bottom line is we wanted to make something that is fun... [We] paid homage to the value systems that have made Fast & Furious such a juggernaut and powerhouse and that’s family. We really lean into it in this movie.”
“The whole thing has been such a laugh,” Statham explained in an interview late last year. “
“We’re having a ball,” Statham continued. “It’s definitely become much funnier than we intended for it to be, I think. It’s just two guys screwing around, making the most of it, and we’re getting some good stuff. But that will be determined by the audience, I’m sure, whether it’s good or bad. But we feel like we’re doing something great and we’re enjoying it.”
Hobbs & Shaw will debut in theaters on August 2nd.
