hobbs and shaw first look

One of the biggest blockbusters of the year will undoubtedly be Hobbs and Shaw, the spin-off from the Fast and Furious franchise focusing on Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as the titular characters. One of them is a former agent of the Diplomatic Security Service turned outlaw, and the other is a former Major in the Special Air Service turned deadly mercenary. Now the two who were playfully at odds in The Fate of the Furious will be teaming up against their biggest threat yet: Idris Elba.

See a new Hobbs and Shaw photo of these three forces of nature ready to “get it on.” Read More »

Turn Up Charlie Photos

Idris Elba was just named the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine last year, and we know that’s true because he even looks dashing when he’s playing a DJ who ends up being a manny to friend’s daughter.

See Idris Elba spinning the tracks and looking like a boss in the Turn Up Charlie photos below. Read More »

luther season 5 trailer

Idris Elba just can’t say goodbye to Luther. Even though season 3 (or series, if you’re in the UK) more or less wrapped things up, Elba returned for a two-episode season 4. And now he’s back yet again with season 5. The latest season finds Elba’s DCI John Luther back yet again, donning his famous gray trench coat, and dealing with creepy serial killers. Also back for a split-second: Ruth Wilson as Alice Morgan, the psychopathic killer who has a major crush on Luther. Watch the Luther season 5 trailer below.

three Thousand Years Of Longing

After what’s felt like three thousand years of longing, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller has finally lined-up his next project, appropriately titled Three Thousand Years of Longing. We don’t know much about the film, but we know that the film is a love story that will feature Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton. The project is also said to be “unlike anything the filmmaker has done before.” Just the knowledge that Miller is finally directing a new film should be enough to get most film fans excited.

Idris Elba joins Cats

People dressed in cat suits dance across a trash heap, singing about which of them will be chosen by the Jellicle Leader. An armored figure steps from the shadows. It’s Idris Elba‘s Stacker Pentecost from Pacific Rim, and he’s here to cancel the catpocalypse. /daydream

Back in reality, Idris Elba is the latest actor to come on board Les Miserables director Tom Hooper‘s Cats movie musical, joining an eclectic cast of performers who range from Taylor Swift to Sir Ian McKellen. And as interesting as a multi-franchise crossover would be, Elba probably won’t be reprising his Pacific Rim role in this movie. (Probably.) Read more about the long-in-the-works Cats film below.
