Hot on the heels of its trailer launch Friday, Universal Pictures has unleashed the Superbowl commercial for “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” the first spin-off in the long-running franchise.
Hobbs (Johnson) is a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service. Shaw (Statham) is a former British military elite operative turned criminal.
When cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever, and bests a fearless rogue MI6 agent (Vanessa Kirby) who happens to be Shaw’s sister – these two enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy worse than themselves.
David Leitch helms the film from a script by Chris Morgan. The film opens in cinemas August 2nd.
