Biggest Stunt in Hobbs and Shaw

For years, moviegoers have found themselves drawn to the Fast & Furious franchise and its parade of gravity-defying stunts. With each installment, the stunts got bigger and more elaborate, going from better-than average driving, to dragging a safe through the streets of Rio, to throwing cars out of airplanes, jumping from one skyscraper and into another skyscraper, and even racing a submarine.

The series’ first spin-off, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shawgoes deeper into the realm of science fiction than any previous movie in the series. So it comes as no surprise to find that the stunts are a little different this time around as Brixton Lore (Idris Elba) is no mere villain: he is a cybernetically-enhanced superman who doesn’t need a car to protect him from crashing into buses or even getting shot in the face. 

And now we’re going to get into spoiler territory.

Hobbs and Shaw Cameos

If you went into Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw expecting to get some cameos from the cast of the primary Fast and Furious franchise, then you walked away mostly disappointed. But if you went in not expecting a couple key cameos from two of Hollywood’s biggest stars, then you may have left the theater satisfied.

The marketing for Hobbs and Shaw kept the cameos in question out of the marketing, and the internet has been surprisingly good about keeping them under wraps, but now the cat’s out of the bag, and the cameos are officially being used to push the second weekend of release. Find out who made these big Hobbs and Shaw cameos and even see clips of one of them below. Read More »

michelle rodriguez justice for han

There’s more trouble brewing in the Fast and Furious family.

Michelle Rodriguez, who plays Letty, has voiced her displeasure with the way the franchise has treated its female characters in the past, though she seemed to resolve that dispute earlier this year. But now she’s taken to Twitter to dismiss the contributions of writer/producer Chris Morgan, who has been the architect of the Fast franchise since 2006’s The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Specifically, Rodriguez says that Morgan has nothing to do with the “Justice for Han” narrative. Take a look at her comment below. Read More »

Hobbs and Shaw trailer

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is now in theaters and it is a bonkers action movie that brings the street racing franchise into soft sci-fi territory and a step closer to their inevitable movie set in space. Who would have thought back in the early 2000s that a franchise that started with petty criminals and street racing would one day introduce superhuman cybernetics and a programmable virus? With the franchise’s first spin-off (unless you count Tokyo Drift) feeling like such a departure from the early years of the Fast & Furious movies, let’s take a scroll down memory lane to see how we got here.

Okay. We’ll go beyond that.

Hobbs and Shaw - Johnson Statham synchronize

Chris Morgan has written every single Fast and Furious movie since 2006’s The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and he’s back as a writer/producer of the franchise’s first spin-off, Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw. But while Morgan had previously written all of his entries solo, this time he has a co-writer in the form of Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation).

In a phone interview conducted earlier this week, I spoke with Morgan about how his working relationship with Pearce, the scenes stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham wanted to see in the script, the inspirations for writing this film, taking this franchise into full-on James Bond territory with the villain plot, and more.
