VIDEO – Watch the new ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Fast & Furious Trailer

We got our first look at the upcoming Fast & Furious spinoff movie Hobbs & Shaw today in a new trailer that introduces us to Idris Elba’s villain character, Brixto, who apparently has some superhero powers.

Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, aka Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham are then brought in to help fight this new danger to society, Brixto.

The movie seems to be taking a much more comedic approach than regular Fast & Furious films. Dwayne even told EW back in December that “It’s definitely become much funnier than we intended for it to be, I think. It’s just two guys screwing around, making the most of it, and we’re getting some good stuff. But that will be determined by the audience, I’m sure, whether it’s good or bad [laughs]. But we feel like we’re doing something great and we’re enjoying it.”

Hobbs and Shaw is scheduled for an August 2nd release date.
