With the Fast & the Furious film franchise starting to wind down (the two series-ending films are already in production), it seemed almost inevitable that it would spawn some character-driven spinoffs. The first one is about to arrive in theaters, as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are bringing their characters, Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw, together for Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. When we spoke to Johnson, he told us it was important to give the new film a Fast & Furious feel, but to make it something that would stand on its own merits, too.

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw opens in theaters on August 2.
