Apparently, the only way he can possibly be stopped is by sending in Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham, aka Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw. This involves scenes in which Hobbs can be seen pummeling a villain while sliding down the side of a skyscraper, sports cars sliding underneath giant lorries, and Jason Statham being, well, Jason Statham.
Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw will hit theaters on August 2, 2019.
After eight films that have amassed nearly $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. The first trailer for the spinoff was released on February 1, and it looks badass. Idris Elba plays Brixton, who's hell-bent on bringing the world to its knees with a stolen bio weapon.
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. Along the way, they'll cross paths with Shaw's sister Hattie, played by The Crown alum Vanessa Kirby, and be forced to form an unlikely alliance.
What follows is a rapid-fire dose of, well, fast and furious action, set to the strains of the War tune "Why Can't We Be Friends?"
Dwayne has been teasing the epic film for months as he's been filming in London and all over the globe.
