When it comes to action movies, I have some rules of thumb – one of them is rock (Dwayne Johnson, not the movie). If he plays in a movie, chances are good, even if the source material is Baywatch or Jumanji . I have a similar rule regarding Jason Statham, who has shown a similar willingness to get on his nerves a bit in the last few years (though it's worth looking at Spy in 201
Much of the footage in this new trailer has been seen before, but it feels very different in tone from the longer one that fell in April. The new clip looks lighthearted, and at some point I could swear that Statham channeled his Rick Ford character from the aforementioned Spy . There is also a bit more of Hobbs & # 39; Mother (played by Lori Pelenise Tuisano), who is pleased to respond to her son's plan to stop Brixton, Idris Elba's evil villain.
We can also see a bit more of the McLaren 720S chase through the streets of London. As with previous films in the franchise, the key to enjoyment is to mentally seal off the and actually regions of your brain. For example: modern supercars are not much better with the 720S, but I drove this car. It has exactly two seats and they bring the driver and front passenger closer together than probably any other car you can buy. I mention that only because Johnson is massive. And Statham is not exactly Waif-like. So I do not try to think too much about how the two and Vanessa Kirby, who plays Shaw's sister Hattie, manage to fit into the trio while being pursued by some futuristic motorcycles.
Hobbs and Shaw will open in the US on August 2, which still feels too remote.
