Hobbs & Shaw will feature the most insane stunts yet in the Fast & Furious franchise.
With less than a month until the film hits theaters, the third and final trailer has been released for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, the first spinoff film in the franchise starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Jason Statham. It may be a spinoff, but this is going to be the most action-packed Fast & Furious film yet. According to The Metro, Hobbs & Shaw will have over 30 gravity-defying stunts, from car chases and helicopter stunts to fist fights, and over 120 global stunt performers.
The new trailer opens with an extended look at the chase scene featuring the McLaren 720S evading bad guys on bikes through the streets of London. One of the bad guys happens to be the film’s genetically enhanced villain played by Idris Elba, who rides a futuristic motorcycle and follows the supercar under not one, but two semi-trailer trucks passing through an intersection. The McLaren 720S is then used as a ramp to launch the bike into a double-decker bus.
Most of the remaining footage has already been seen in previous trailers. We get to meet Hobbs’s family who run a body shop, which explains why there are so many crazy custom cars on display including a massive flatbed truck, a buggy that flips over while smashing through a window, and a hot rod that uses the cab from a Peterbilt truck and ends up pulling a helicopter. As with all the Fast & Furious films, Hobbs & Shaw looks like a lot of fun – just don’t expect the stunts to obey the laws of physics.
If we have a criticism, the trailer potentially spoils some of the film’s standout moments. Hopefully, there will still be a few surprises left in the tank when Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw opens in the US on August 2.
