It’s right about time. The first trailer for the Fast and Furious new film Hobbs and Shaw is out.
Hobbs and Shaw played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham will team up to fight against their common enemy who is literally bulletproofed, Brixton played by Idris Elba. This will make it its eight films in the film franchise.
This team up is interesting because the major characters, Hobbs and Shaw dislike each other but “it was important for us, especially for this first outing for Hobbs and Shaw, to put them up against someone who is a real true challenge to them… so bad, so tough, so capable, that it would force them to team up,” the writer and creator of the new film, Chris Morgan told the BBC.
On how the film came about, Morgan said the idea to team them up was thought of after both were put in prison.
“It wasn’t until [The Fate of the Furious], where we put them together in a prison, that we saw how well Jason and Dwayne bounced off each other,”
he tells BBC News.
“And really, we have so many takes of the things they would say to each other off the cuff that were so funny, [the chemistry] was kind of undeniable.”
This new film takes a slight direction from the stunt storyline that Fast and Furious is known for. Its audience will focus on a storyline while they will see a slight reduction of the stunts.
Take a look:
Hobbs and Shaw will be out in cinemas on August 2.
