The official title for Hobbs and Shaw is now Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. The long-awaited spin-off finally started filming this year and Dwayne Johnson, along with Jason Statham have been saying how great the movie is while also teasing fans with action-packed shots from the set.
While the new title is a bit long, the studio more than likely does not want anybody to forget that this is a part of the Fast and Furious franchise when it hits theaters around the world. The Fast and Furious franchise is gigantic and the last installment, Fate of the Furious brought in $1.2 billion globally. It will be interesting to see how Hobbs and Shaw measures up to the franchise as a whole.
Fans have been waiting a long time to see Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson in the spin-off, so it could end up doing some pretty good box office business when all is said and done. Obviously, having Johnson in the movie will guarantee that a lot of people will go to the theaters to check it out.
Now that we’ve been getting all of these teases from the set, a trailer should be on the way in the near future, ahead of the August 2nd, 2019 release date. The official title announcement was revealed by Total Film.
