Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
- 2 hr 15 min
In the action fantasy Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, two rival agents who have been at odds team up to stop the evil plot of a dangerous anarchist. Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs and Shaw is a spinoff of the Fast & Furious franchise. It features characters originally introduced in Furious 7. The action follows Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw as they work together to find a missing "programmable supervirus." The virus has been stolen by Shaw's sister. A genetically engineered super villain is trying to get his hands on the deadly thing, too. It's up to Hobbs and Shaw to set everything right before evil terrorists can destroy the world. In the process, they'll travel around the world, drive fast cars, and blow things up. The characters of Hobbs and Shaw were part of the plot of the seventh film in the Fast & Furious franchise. The events of this spin off are set after those of 2017's The Fate of the Furious, the eighth film in the franchise. The next film in the franchise will be F9, which is expected to be released in 2021. The film earned almost three quarters of a billion dollars at the box office, making it one of the most successful films in the franchise. However, it received mixed critical response on a par with the response to other films in the franchise. In early 2020, star Dwayne Johnson confirmed that a sequel to Hobbs & Shaw is in development. As of mid 2020, no writer or director had yet been hired for the project.
