After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion (Bt160 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 Presents: 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 “Fast & 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.

Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the “Fast universe” as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa. 

 Directed by David Leitch (“Deadpool 2”) from a script by long-time Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film is produced by Morgan, Johnson, Statham and Hiram Garcia. 

 The franchise was left in limbo when leading actor Paul Walker died in a car accident before finishing “Fast 7” and conflicts arose between Johnson and Vin Diesel during the shooting of Fast and Furious 8”. 

“Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” will be release in Thailand on August 1.
