The Rock and Jason Statham Take on Idris Elba in New 'Fast & Furious' Spinoff Trailer

He may be the Sexiest Man Alive, but he's also a Cyber-Genetically Enhanced Anarchist

February 1, 2019

After making nearly five billion dollars worldwide over eight movies, The Fast & Furious franchise is expanding with its first spinoff. Hobbs & Shaw features Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Jason Statham fighting a suped-up supervillian played by Sexiest Man Alive Idris Elba.

The film finds the two traveling the globe to fight the threat of the "cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist" played by Elba, and they're sure to encounter some trademark bonkers F&F action along the way. Like the fight on the side of a skyscaper for starters.
