New trailer for the Fast & Furious spinoff.

With the Fast & Furious franchise raking in the sort of money usually reserved for Star Wars and superhero movies, spinoffs were inevitable.

The first is Hobbs & Shaw, which sees Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham's titular hard men reluctantly team up to take down a terrorist played by Idris Elba.

Deadpool 2's David Leitch directs the film, which also stars Vanessa Kirby and Helen Mirren.

Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw is in UK/ROI cinemas August 2nd.

Check out the new trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

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.

Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.
