I’m not sure why they call this a spinoff when it looks, literally, like ALL of the other damn Fast and Furious movies. Perhaps making it a spinoff takes the pressure away from having to remember exactly which number they’re in with the franchise (I think this one would be called The Fast & Furious 1,000 or something like that.) Whatever, there’s a new one coming out this summer called Hobbs & Shaw starring human statue Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jason Statham, and Idris Elba as a ghost.
Here’s what you can expect from the trailer: Cars. Explosions. A semi-nude shot of The Rock (I’d leave after that). The Rock and Jason as Frenemies. Cars. Shitty one-liners. Cars. A skinny blond (Vanessa Kirby of The Crown). And Extra Special Guest, motorcycles!
Oh, it’s over? Did you like it? I’m sure you’ve noticed one thing missing from the trailer, including the lack of overly used CGI, was The Rock’s favorite BFF (not at all) Vin Diesel who’s probably hard at work at Fast & Furious 9. I remember the last Fast & Furious movie I saw, which included a scene where a car tumbled down an entire mountain and nobody died. Not even a half-nekkid shot of The Rock could bring me back for any more of this.
