Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw The Rock

Buckle up folks, because it’s time to get crazy. Universal Pictures has released the new trailer for Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw, which you can check out below. The new trailer features a ton of new footage and story details, revealing more on Vanessa Kirby’s role as Deckard Shaw’s (Jason Statham) sister as a rogue MI6 agent who has stolen a virus from Idris Elba’s supervillain. The trailer also features the first footage of WWE star Roman Reigns as Luke Hobb’s (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson) brother — or one of his many brothers. In the midst of it all, there are plenty of gun battles, vehicular insanity and a Samoan-on-bad guy throwdown for the ages.

The film is directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan and stars Johnson, Statham, Elba, Kirby, and Helen Mirren.

Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.

But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.
