The official trailer for the spinoff movie ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw’ has been released.
Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will return as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw respectively.
From being mortal enemies in the previous Fast and Furious instalments, the two lead characters are now forming a dynamic duo to take on a cyber- and genetically-enhanced anarchist named Brixton.
Johnson described Brixton, who will be played by Idris Elba, as “the Baddest Bad Guy the Fast & Furious franchise has ever had.”
The trailer looks promising as it features heart-stopping car chases and fight scenes that will surely leave fans craving for more.
The 46-year old actor, Dwayne Johnson, will reprise his role as the Diplomatic Security Service agent, Luke Hobbs, in the upcoming The Fast and the Furious spinoff.
Jason Statham will play Deckard Shaw to form the dynamic duo, Hobbs and Shaw.
Director David Leitch guaranteed that the movie would be fun as it will explore the relationship and expand the worlds of the main characters.
“There’s obviously some of the DNA of the Fast universe.”
“But what we really want to do is create something fresh and different for these characters, and dive into their world.”
“Hobbs and Shaw come from the agent-and-spy world.”
“It’s obviously about their banter and their relationship, but it’s more about expanding their world and their connections and creating a family in a slightly different universe. It’s going to be fun.”
According to Leitch, the spinoff will be more grounded as it will serve as the beginning of a new franchise.
“It’s an origin story, in a sense. It’s not an origin story, but we’re starting a franchise.”
“So, we want it to be a little bit more grounded, a little bit more character-centric.”
“We’re going to set up the stakes for these guys and their relationship, but we’re also going to have some great set pieces and some action that you’d expect from that type of franchise.”
After more than three months of physical preparation, ‘The Rock’ has turned himself into a 260-lb beast, ready to take the franchise to greater heights.
He shared a jaw-dropping shirtless photo on Instagram (see below), which showed how hard he has worked to be physically ready for this film.
“After 18 weeks of disciplined diet & intense training, here’s where I landed my carcass for shooting my FAST & FURIOUS spin-off HOBBS & SHAW.”
“Always room for improvements, but not too bad for a scarred up surgically repaired Brahma Bull who’s injuries always tell the story.”
“Huge THANKS to my strength and conditioning coach @daverienzi for his masterful strategies that’s constantly shifting daily based on how I’m looking/feeling to achieve our goals.”
“THANKS to EVERYONE in my inner circle (including the NASA scientists) who support the big picture – my diet, training, health & wellness, balance, consistency and execution.”
“The Rock” also took to Instagram yesterday to announce that the Hobbs and Shaw’s official trailer has finally arrived.
“Get ready for the biggest and baddest showdown the FAST & FURIOUS franchise has ever seen. Why can’t we be friends @jasonstatham? Fuck off. That’s why.”
