Currently, in theatres, 'Hobbs and Shaw' opens with a seemingly routine operation headed by MI-6 under the leadership of Hattie Shaw (Vanessa Kirby) to retrieve a deadly virus "Snowflake" from the hands of megalomaniac organization named Eteon. However, all goes sideways with the arrival of Idris Alba's villainous Brixton Lure (self-proclaimed black Superman ) who gets rid of everyone, all but Hattie who is forced to go rogue with the virus; bringing in the difficult duo of Hobbs and Shaw to trace her along with the virus. Directed by David Leitch, it opened on August 2 worldwide.
