Idris Elba and Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson are joining forces. In sexiness. And in the first official "Fast & Furious" spinoff. The first trailer for "Hobbs & Shaw" inside...
Dwayne Johnson, who hosts his new NBC show "The Titan Games," and Jason Statham are reprising their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. And they added a third dose of sexy for the villain: Idris Elba. No word on how The Rock's Fast & Furious co-star Tyrese feels about that.

Creating an icon. For HOBBS & SHAW we cast the one and only @idriselba to be the baddest, most diabolical, most dominant and coolest bad guy the FAST & FURIOUS franchise has ever seen. I thought it was a good idea to create an iconic character at the time I pitched it — until he started kickin’ the shit outta me for 14hrs daily, in the cold rain and working thru weekends. The man to my left is my brother in arms. He also has a vicious Muay Thai elbow. And I had to open my big mouth. In the end, it’s worth the pain. #CreatingAnIcon #Brixton HOBBS & SHAW SUMMER 2019 @hhgarcia41
We've been hyped ever since this post. Now, the trailer's here.
Here's the synopsis:
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.
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters this summer!
