Hobbs & Shaw gets Fast & Furious in its final trailer

If you felt Hobbs & Shaw’s last trailer focused a touch too much on skyscrapers, helicopters, and Hobbs’ Samoan roots, the action flick’s latest clip is here to remind you that, yes, this is a Fast & Furious spin-off. It opens with an extended look at a thrilling, over-the-top vehicular chase scene, one that culminates with Idris Elba’s “Black Superman” crashing through the upper level of a double decker bus with nary a scratch. Somebody give the man a Corona.

Hobbs & Shaw opens on August 2, while the ninth installment in the Fast & Furious franchise, having swapped The Rock for John Cena, has officially begun filming.
