Before I talk about this new trailer let me give you a quick history of my relationship with the Fast and Furious franchise. I had never watched the Fast and Furious films until I saw the last hour or so of Furious Seven on HBO one day. I wasn’t a fan at all. Then The Fate of the Furious came out, I didn’t go see it in the movies, but I did watch it when it was available for rent. I wasn’t expecting to like the movie at all but after about forty minutes I realized that the movie was actually kind of good. By the time the film had reached its conclusion I was beaming with joy and clapping elatedly. And part of the reason why I enjoyed the film so much was that of Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw. Their unlikely bromance was hilarious to observe and even though I hadn’t seen the previous seven films I still completely understood the rivalry.
When it was announced that there would be a spinoff focusing on solely them as the film’s protagonists I was so excited and finally! the trailer is here. Check it out.
This trailer was everything that I expected, and more. The action looks phenomenal! The humor seems legitimately hilarious. And Idris Elba definitely looks like a convincingly tough villain.
All in all, this film is set to come out on August 2 and I can’t wait to see it in IMAX. It’s going to be AWESOME!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
