Grab that tub of popcorn and order that large cold drink for Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are going to try making your weekend a memorable affair. Lately, Hollywood movies have been challenging the Bollywood flicks in India. Be it Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man: Far From Home or even the recent release The Lion King. This weekend, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw will head out at the box office. The first spinoff featurette from the Fast & Furious franchise is reportedly the second most expensive in the Fast & Furious franchise to be made with a budget on $200 million. 

The international film stars Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham and Idris Elba in the lead. Johnson and Statham have been in the Fast & Furious universe for four and three movies, respectively, playing Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw. All this time, they were on opposite sides of a table. However, their dynamics are set to change as they team up to fight a new villain, played by Elba. The handsome hunk plays Brixton Lore in the movie.

The trailers have teased Hobbs & Shaw's hilariously bromance while Lore seems to be a good choice for the negative role. Apart from The Rock, Statham and Elba, the movie stars Vanessa Kirby, Eddie Marsan and Eiza Gonzalez in pivotal roles. The movie has been helmed by Deadpool 2 director David Leitch. Like any other Fast & Furious movies, this movie will also feature some edge-of-the-seat stunts. 

The movie is said to revolve around a cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton who gets the control of bio-threat which could change the face of humanity forever. This brings arch-rivals Hobbs and Shaw under one roof, who are expected to hunt down Lore, with the help of an MI6 agent, played by Kirby, and bring him down.

Universal Pictures released three trailers over the course of the past few months. Check out the trailers below:
