Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw
, directed by David Leitch, is a spinoff of The Fast and the Furious
franchise, which sees the return of Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
Hattie Shaw (Vanessa Kirby) is part of an MI6 team sent to recover a programmable virus codenamed “Snowflake” from the terrorist group Eteon, however they are intercepted by a cybernetically advanced human, Brixton Lorr (Idris Elba). Brixton is able to kill all of the agents except for Hattie, who injects herself with Snowflake before she escapes.
Lorr has Eteon, who has a powerful reach, turn everyone on Hattie, making it look like she killed her team to steal the virus.
DSS Agent Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and Hattie’s brother and former MI6 agent, Deckard Shaw (Statham), are read in about the events and forced to team up to stop Eteon and save Hattie.
Things go from bad to worse when not only is Hattie grabbed by Lorr, but they also discover that she will be infected with the virus and spread it if they don’t either kill her or get it extracted by a tool in Eteon’s headquarters in time.
