Universal Pictures has released the first amazingly kickass trailer for the first Fast and the Furious franchise spin-off, officially titled Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.
Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film is produced by Morgan, Johnson, Statham and Hiram Garcia. The executive producers are Kelly McCormick, Dany Garcia, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith and Ainsley Davies.
Being a huge fan of the original Fast and Furious film, the sequels have been pretty mediocre over the years, surprisingly though, the franchise has continued to make more and more money even when the quality is all over the place. Main stream audiences love thoughtless average action blockbusters. Finally though, it seems as though the franchise may have grown up a bit and appears to be giving us a solid action thriller with Hobbs and Shaw. So yea, after seeing that trailer, I’m excited.
Hobbs & Shaw will be kicking ass into theaters on August 2, 2019.
