Uh-Oh. Somebody check on Tyrese (we’re kidding…kind of). The trailer for Fast & Furious’ first spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw is finally here. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jason Statham will reprise their roles in the billion dollar franchise, but a new villain will make his place known. Hello Idris Elba!

So what could possibly happen when these three get together? “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.”

Watch the trailer below.

Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters on August 2, 2019, while Fast & Furious 9 debuts on the big screen April 10, 2020.
