If you’re looking for a movie with insane action this summer, you’re in luck, because Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is coming.

The first full trailer for the movie has been released, and it’s nothing short of electrifying. From Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson pulling a chopper down with a chain (OK and a little help from a Jeep) to Idris Elba running down the side of a skyscraper, this movie is kicking things up a notch in a major way.

In his Instagram post introducing the trailer, Johnson said that along with expanding the Fast & Furious universe, the filmmakers wanted to create an authentic story while highlighting both Jason Statham’s English culture and Johnson’s Samoan heritage as the characters Deckard Shaw and Luke Hobbs. There are epic scenes going down in London with Shaw’s family, as well as a major battle between Elba’s villain Brixton Lore in Hawaii with Hobbs’ family serving as allies.

The plot of the film is revealed in the trailer, with Elba’s villain—a genetically enhanced soldier who calls himself the “black Superman”—tracking down a deadly virus before it’s taken by MI6 agent Hattie Shaw, Deckard’s sister. Eventually, Shaw and Hobbs are pulled into the fold, setting up a battle between Brixton’s forces and the duo.

Check out the wild, thrilling trailer:

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, directed by David Leitch, will be released on August 2.
