Eine handvoll neuer Trailer zu Hobbs & Shaw, dem Remake des 1990er Thrillers Jacobs Ladder, zu Jumanji: The Next Level und dem Japan-Horror Vamp. Dazu jede Menge Filmnews mit The Sandman, ersten Bildern der Witcher-Serie, Danny Boyle arbeitet an 28 Months Later, Hello Kitty wird verfilmt und Bill & Ted 3 hat Missy-äh-ich-mein’-Mum gecastet.
After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw.
Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.
But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.
