In a spin-off to Hollywood’s boldest & one of the most entertaining franchises Fast & Furious, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s Hobbs & Shaw is all set to release tomorrow in India. There have been certain contests in which the winners can watch the movie a day before i.e. today.
But, in other news, there’s bad news for the true-blue fans of the franchise. The movie has been leaked online, just a day before its release. Over the years, the threat of piracy has been a serious issue for Bollywood as well as any other industry over here.
The full movie has been leaked on YouTube and it’s been said this could affect the day 1 of the film. A double-digit box office collections have been predicted for the film, but the advance has still not taken off in a way as it as expected.
Idris Elba and Vanessa Kirby are also on board with David Leitch directing. “Fast and Furious” architect Chris Morgan penned the script.
The film will see the titular, often-at-odds pair teaming up. It is unknown who Gonzalez will be playing.
Since his arrival in the franchise’s fifth instalment, Universal has tried to find a way to spin off Johnson’s Hobbs character, given his popularity with fans.
Statham joined the series in the seventh movie, and considering the chemistry between the two actors in 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious”, Universal took action on plans to develop a spinoff. It hits theatres on July 26, 2019.
