Cape Town – The first trailer for the Fast and Furious spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw is here!

Dwayne Johnson who reprises his role as agent Luke Hobbs has been doing a lot hyping since the movie was announced. And from the looks of the trailer this movie is definitely worth all the hype!

Set to War's, Why Can't We Be Friends the 3 minute clip it is packed with action: death defying stunts, fight scenes and funny one-liners.

Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America's Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Deckhar Shaw (Jason 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 ( 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.
