I'm still excited for it, I just think the trailer would have been better served leaving out beach fight.
I'm more surprised by the fact that they're embracing a whole new level of silliness with Idris Elba as a genetically-modified super-soldier.
Huffington Post enthusiasts? Do those even exist?

Or a term used by huffing enthusiasts.

Are you sitting there thinking, "My life would be so much better if there was a dirt-track racing movie featuring John Travolta, Michael Madsen and Shania Twain?"

I guess. It wasn't a culture comment, but the jarring shift from cgi, impossible camera shots to something that just looks like a generic fight scene you've seen 50eleven times.
Well, it is meant to be a spin-off featuring the F&F series' two main brawlers so it would make sense to focus more on the different types of fighting they could do (and the first part of that trailer is a relatively generic hallway fight).

Also lmao at comparing the haka to line-dancing, that's the kind of thing that could get your ass kicked.
It really breaks "the trailer" . Like, "When did I start watching a different movie".

Maybe Dwayne has one guaranteed script note written into his contract.

"Here's an idea. Let's take a pseudo MI/Bond movie about cars and technology and throw in a beach front fight scene that looks like a bunch of people line-dancing."

A complete 180 good/bad from the 1st trailer to the 2nd.
Pretty sure it ground to a halt once it brought on the director of Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2.

Besides, people loved it when a Bond movie decided to have its 3rd act take place in a run-down mansion instead of in some exotic underground lair so, y'know, not without precedence to change things up like this.
