The two least likely partners face off against Idris Elba
There seems to be no stopping the Fast & Furious franchise and one of the unexpected relationships that has developed over the past few films is between Dwayne Johnson’s Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw. Hobbs & Shaw sees the two men get their own spin-off, which if successful (and you can only presume it will be) looks set to run and run. And judging by the trailer, this looks like it could be a lot of fun. The first trailer for Hobbs & Shaw has just been dropped and you can check it out above right now.
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs, a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw, a former British military elite operative, first faced off, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.
But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever – and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent, who just happens to be Shaw’s sister – these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.
David Leitch (Deadpool 2, John Wick and Atomic Blonde) directs, with the supporting cast starring Idris Elba, Eiza González, Vanessa Kirby and Eddie Marsan.
