HOBBS AND SHAW: Idris Elba Pulls Out All The Stops (And A Flamethrower)
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has been known for sharing behind the seasons glimpses at different productions he’s involved in. That tradition hasn’t stopped with Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs And Shaw. The megastar took to Instagram to share this awesome black and white still of Idris Elba. Elba is carrying a gigantic flamethrower!
Check it out below:
Elba looks menacing, but also like he’s ready to party. He plays Brixton, nefarious the villain in the movie, an anarchist Hobbs and Shaw need to catch. The spin-off from the Fast and Furious movies includes Vanessa Kirby as Shaw’s sister, and MI6 agent, and Eiza Gonzalez in a titular role as of yet undisclosed. Gonzalez was a last minute addition to the film the producers seem happy to have.
Check out the official plot synopsis for Hobbs and Shaw below, and stay tuned for all your Fast and Furious news here, at Revenge of the Fans.
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, 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 (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown‘s Vanessa Kirby), 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.Official Plot Synopsis
