Who knew The Fast and the Furious franchise was branching out? Their first offshoot, Hobbs & Shaw, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham is the ideal start to a spin-off series. Before you hit the theaters this weekend, here are 4 things you should know about Hobbs & Shaw:
- Expect what you’re expecting! It seems rare these days that trailers actually provide a realistic view of what to expect in a film, so it’s a nice change of pace when the trailer is as goofy and action-packed as the movie itself. Hobbs & Shaw is the perfect blend of action, comedy, and heart.
- It’s long! Hit the bathroom before you sit down because, not only is the movie itself pretty long, but there are also…
- Post-Credit Scenes! Yes, with an ‘s’. Stay seated through the entire credits roll because there are plenty of bonus scenes for you to enjoy.
- Kickass Female Character! New addition Vanessa Kirby plays a badass character who doesn’t wait for the men to save her. This woman is more than capable of saving herself and she’s not afraid to show it. But she’s not just brute force, this character is also smart as hell. Honestly, I’d watch an entire film just about her… fingers crossed she leads the sequel.
Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters Friday, August 2nd
