I hate to sound like a downer, but this summer has mostly sucked in terms of big-budget Hollywood blockbusters, outside of Avengers: Endgame and John Wick 3.

I just saw Spider-Man: Far From Home the other night and was mostly disappointed, which is the same feeling I felt with Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Toy Story 4 and Men in Black: International.

Will anything save us from this boring coma of established franchises that don’t need to be giving us any more sequels?

I sure hope Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is that cure to the sugar-free summer that we’ve been having.

John Wick co-director David Leitch seems to be having a blast with this movie, featuring Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Vanessa Kirby and Black Superman aka Idris Elba.

Yes, these trailers have been giving away all of the goodies, but at least these goodies look light and fun and insanely over-the-top.

Nothing serious here and you know what, I’m more than okay with that!

Hobbs & Shaw opens in August, which is just in time to save this summer from being completely forgettable.
