Watch the recently released high-action film Fast and the Furious: Hobbs & Shaw at Dubai Opera from 11 August - 13 August. Enjoy this movie on a large, high-definition screen in Dubai Opera’s acoustically superior and visually stunning auditorium. Tickets start at AED60 with an additional option for drinks and popcorn.
The film is a spin-off of the popular franchise, continuing the story of lawman Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and former British military operative Shaw (Jason Statham) from Furious 7. So it is likely to have lots in common with the previous movies. Expect tons of CGI-enhanced action sequences of vehicles colliding and exploding, as well as physical fighting and guns.
Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Shaw (Jason Statham) continue their mutual hatred from 2017’s Fate of the Furious, even as they team up with Hattie (Vanessa Kirby), an MI6 field agent and Shaw's sister, to stop cyber-genetically enhanced Brixton Lore (Idris Elba) from threatening the world with a deadly virus. Women might get more agency in this iteration, thanks to the fearless Hattie, as well as Magdelene (Helen Mirren), Shaw's tough-as-nails mother. Though, as in the previous films, there's likely to be plenty of flirting and innuendo, too. The new superhero/supervillain framing may draw sci-fi/fantasy lovers, while returning fans will presumably love the spin-off's fiery action.
