The bombastic action and thrills of Universal Pictures’s Hobbs & Shaw arrives in your home on October 15th on digital or November 15th on Blu-Ray/DVD. This spin-off from the Fast and Furious franchise is much more than just a simple cash-grab from the studio. It packs in action to every moment. The film follows the two titular characters, Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham). They go on a mission that spans the globe and brings them both together with familial ties that go even deeper than that of the original Fast and Furious crew. It also stars Idris Elba as the villainous, genetically enhanced, Brixton Lorr, and Vanessa Kirby steals the show as Hattie Shaw. Kirby needs her own action franchise with a performance like this.
