When it comes to action movies, I have a few rules of thumb—one of them concerns the Rock (Dwayne Johnson, not the movie). If he's in a film, odds are high it'll be good even if the starting material is Baywatch or Jumanji. I've got a similar rule about Jason Statham, who in recent years has embraced a similar willingness to engage in a bit of tongue-in-cheek (though 2015's Spy is worth watching solely to see him chew every bit of scenery in sight). Obviously, all this means the summer movie I'm looking forward to above all others is Hobbs and Shaw, the latest installment from the Fast and Furious universe starring both Johnson and Statham. That anticipation has only increased with the release of a third and final trailer on Friday.
Much of the footage in this new trailer has been seen before, but it feels quite different in tone compared to the longer one that dropped in April. The new clip comes across as more light-hearted, and at one point I could swear Statham is channeling his Rick Ford character from the aforementioned Spy. There's a little more of Hobbs' mother (played by Lori Pelenise Tuisano), too, who reacts with glee to her son's plan to stop Brixton, Idris Elba's evil villain.
