After a year away from the big screen, Dwayne Johnson is back with Jason Statham tow in the first trailer for “Hobbs and Shaw,” which premiered Friday morning.

When we last saw Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in “The Fate of the Furious,” the two bitter enemies had reconciled after joining forces to defeat Cipher. Now the two are taking a break from Dominic Toretto’s family to stop an international terrorist played by Idris Elba.

Action director David Leitch (“John Wick,” “Deadpool 2) is helming the film, which is written by longtime “Fast and Furious” screenwriter Chris Morgan.

The film also stars Vanessa Kirby, Helen Mirren, and Johnson’s cousin and WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, who filmed his scenes while recovering from a leukemia diagnosis that put his wrestling career on hold.

“Hobbs and Shaw” arrives in theaters Aug. 2. Watch the trailer in the clip above.
