And Idris Elba is a superpowered bad guy in an action spin-off that looks like fast, furious fun.

The first big trailer for Hobbs and Shaw, the spin-off movie from the Fast and Furious series, got its expected to get a high-profile slot during today's Super Bowl, but a longer version debuted online Friday -- and you can watch it right here. The first thing you'll notice is that the focus on car thieves from the original series has gone properly out of the window with  -- and I've got to admit, it looks like a total blast. 

As you'd guess from the title, the new movie brings Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham together as ass-kicking frenemies Luke "ice-cold can of whup-ass" Hobbs and Deckard "champagne problem" Shaw. The trailer plays up their rivalry with tons of gags in between the massive fights and outrageous stunts, orchestrated by John Wick and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch. Seriously, how much fun is this trailer?

This time Hobbs and Shaw are up against a bulletproof bad guy named Brixton, played by Idris Elba. The action switches from London to Samoa to the wastelands of Chernobyl, blowing things up along the way obviously. Helen Mirren, wrestler Roman Reigns and Vanessa Kirby from The Crown and Mission: Impossible - Fallout also star. 

Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw is expected to drop in August 2019.
