We loved seeing it on the big screen, but when is Hobbs & Shaw on Sky Cinema? The spin-off is on its way fast!

What is your favourite action movie franchise?

There are so many great ones to consider, from Mission: Impossible to the John Wick series. Both boast exceptional fight sequences, stunning stunts and grand spectacle, but if we’re talking pure popcorn-munching escapism, nothing comes close to the delirious fun of the Fast and Furious films.

The first film was released back in 2001, but the series has come so far from its street racing origins. Indeed, instalments have gradually become more daring and ambitious in their approach to action sequences.

Now, we know to go into a Fast and Furious film ready to leave logic at home and have our expectations blown.

For most fans, an entry every few years simply isn’t enough, which is why we were thrilled to welcome Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw last year.

It reunited Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham in the titular roles, teaming up for a mission full of surprises. So, when can we reunite with them on Sky Cinema?

When is Hobbs & Shaw on Sky Cinema?

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw arrives on Sky Cinema on Friday, May 22nd 2020.

It’s the perfect film to help kick off the weekend!

If you wanted to buy a physical copy, on the other hand, it’s available to purchase on DVD for £6.99 on Amazon.

There are other great films set to surface on Sky Cinema during the rest of the month too, including the survival horror Crawl – directed by Alexandre Aja – and yes, more Fast and Furious…

Fast and Furious on Sky Cinema

Beginning on Monday, May 18th, the first six instalments of the Fast and Furious series are set to make their way to Sky Cinema, according to Den of Geek.

This is to accompany the Sky Cinema debut of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw.

So, ahead of the latest entry, why not take a trip down memory lane and trace the franchise’s roots. It really has evolved so much over the years!

Dwayne Johnson on Hobbs & Shaw

Ahead of the film’s theatrical release back in 2019, Dwayne Johnson spoke with ScreenRant about the anticipated blockbuster.

Expressing why it works so well and working with Jason, he addressed:

“…it’s part of the chemistry now, of course. There’s a lot of trust between us, and the chemistry just explodes on-screen… what the spin-off allowed us to do was not only delve into the characters’ backstories. It also allowed us to have our own energy and our own tone. It allowed more comedy, more banter between the two leads. And, again, really created a pretty fun chemistry for the audience.”

You can say that again!

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is available on Sky Cinema from Friday, May 22nd 2020.
