The hotly-anticipated spin-off to the incredibly successful Fast & Furious franchise is finally here! This we know through a brand new trailer which is giving us a glimpse from Hobbs & Shaw. As we didn’t have enough action in the past, the new trailer promises yet more explosive action as The Rock and Jason Statham as reluctant partners in buddy crime, fighting against the villainous mercenary, Idris Elba a.k.a Brixton Lore a.k.a the bad guy.
Before you even start watching the trailer, you might notice the long running time. It’s almost three minutes, which for some is not a good idea. Many think a trailer should not be longer than a minute. However, sometimes we see many practicing the long-trailer trick a.k.a the shortened version of the movie to entice people to watch it.
The trailer opens with Brixton walking through a futuristic planet as he says:
I’m dealing with the future of the planet. A necessary shock to the system. I am human evolutionary change. Bullet proof. Superhuman.
Then, MI6 agent Hattie Shaw (Vanessa Kirby) asks him:
Who the hell are you?
He simply responds “Bad guy,” before he ruthlessly fights with the officers.
As it looks like, Fast & Furious franchise is shifting into something very like science fiction. Idris Elba’s character, Brixton, is clearly claiming to be a kind of human-computer hybrid that represents the next stage in human evolution.
Dominating most of the trailer, we see how Elba’s character will be. Definitely, the bad guy!
See the trailer below:
It looks like Brixton’s mission to alter humanity forever, with Hattie, who is Shaw’s sister, will be difficult when having in front of the duo, Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
The Fast and Furious films started from humble beginnings in 2001 to become a box office smash hit, which inspired one sequel after the other.
The Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw is set to come out this summer. The series has a combined gross of over $5 billion and is the eighth highest grossing film series of all time.
