Vanessa Kirby and Jason Statham's Age Difference in Hobbs and Shaw Has Fans Confused

Vanessa Kirby and Jason Statham's Age Difference in Hobbs and Shaw Has Fans Confused
Warning: spoilers for Hobbs and Shaw ahead!

When it comes to the Fast and Furious franchise, we've learned that anything is possible. Flying cars? Check. Fight scenes with no winners? Check. A lab-engineered MI6 field agent? Got that, too! However, there's one thing fans just can't seem to accept, and that's Vanessa Kirby and Jason Statham's age difference in Hobbs and Shaw. Kirby was just introduced to the franchise as Hattie Shaw, the sister of Statham's Deckard Shaw character. The only issue is that Kirby is 31 and Statham is 52 in real life.

While it's totally not unheard of to have a 21-year age gap between siblings, the film makes it seem like they're around the same age in the flashback scenes where they're shown as kids. They also forgot to include their brother Owen Shaw (Luke Evans) in those scenes, but we'll talk about that another time. So, if

Does the Plot of ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Connect Back to the Main ‘Fast and Furious’ Series?

Does the Plot of ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Connect Back to the Main ‘Fast and Furious’ Series?
(Some spoilers ahead for “Hobbs & Shaw”)

The “Fast and Furious” franchise has been going strong for 18 years now, and it just got its first official spinoff with “Hobbs & Shaw” — though I guess if we’re splitting hairs we could say that “Tokyo Drift” was also a spinoff, it just wasn’t framed as one when it was released in 2006.

I bring up “Tokyo Drift” here for a very specific reason. That movie introduced the beloved character Han (Sung Kang) to the series, and then “Fast & Furious 6” retconned Jason Statham’s character, Shaw in “Hobbs & Shaw,” into the background of that film as the person responsible for Han’s death. Then Shaw was a villain in “Furious 7” before turning hero in “The Fate of the Furious” and getting his own movie alongside The Rock’s Hobbs.

13 of Dwayne Johnson’s Best Roles

13 of Dwayne Johnson’s Best Roles
There is no one quite like Dwayne Johnson, who, after spending eight years as a professional wrestler for the WWE (where his nickname “The Rock” was born) transitioned to becoming one of today’s most bankable actors. Johnson has now become a blockbuster king, pulling in big dollars for films such as “Get Smart,” “Moana,” “Jumanji” and of course the expansive “Fast & Furious” franchise.

It was in 2004, after winning several championships, that the Rock made his first transition to the screen — well, aside from his television appearances on the WWE, where he garnered record-number views for the network. Some of his first credits include 2001’s “The Mummy Returns,” 2002’s “The Scorpion King” and 2003’s “The Rundown.” And despite his belated foray into the acting space, Johnson has quickly cemented his space on the big screen, taking on commanding and powerful roles that it seems only someone with his experience could do.

Film Review: ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’
“Genocide, schmenocide,” growls Idris Elba through a mouth of silver-capped teeth in “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw,” a line that pretty much summarizes where the film stands in relation to reality, the English language and what old-fashioned moral philosophers (like “Leviathan” author Thomas Hobbes) thought of as the respect for human life, and the insatiable thirst for power.

Here, in the extravagantly cartoonish ninth entry in the “Fast & Furious” franchise, Elba isn’t playing a human being, but whatever comes next: a kind of bionically upgraded cyber-villain with computer-enhanced eyeballs, bulletproof hands and an unwavering will to eradicate what this not-exactly-Shakespearean screenplay broadly describes as “the weak.” Elba, a gifted actor with a capacity for making otherwise tired genre characters feel fresh and vulnerable, puts aside that instinct to embody the uni-dimensionally menacing Brixton Lorr — or “Black Superman,” as co-writers Chris Morgan and Drew Pearce like to think of him,

Justice for Han Is Coming Promises Hobbs & Shaw Writer

Justice for Han Is Coming Promises Hobbs & Shaw Writer
One of the most important, and seemingly ignored, story arcs in the Fast and Furious franchise is coming back around. Many fans have taken to saying "justice for Han" in recent years, given the fate of the character played by Sung Kang. Not only did Han die, but he was killed by Jason Statham's Deckard Shaw. Now, Shaw is being painted as something of a hero, which isn't sitting too well with certain devotees of the series. But writer Chris Morgan promises, justice is coming.

For those who may need a little more of a refresher, Han was introduced in Tokyo Drift, the third movie in the series. Han dies in the movie in a terrible car crash. It was later revealed that the events of Tokyo Drift actually take place after Fast & Furious 6, in part because the studio wanted to keep Han in the movies. However,

The Invisible Man Movie Reboot Release Date Moves Up

Joseph Baxter John Saavedra Aug 22, 2019

Blumhouse's remake of The Invisible Man arrives in February. Here's what we know about the studio's latest monster movie!

A new version of The Invisible Man, the classic Universal monster created by H.G. Wells, will live again in a new reboot from Universal and Blumhouse, which is now set for a Feb. 28 release, moving up two weeks from its original March 13 release date.

The Invisible Man will star Oliver Jackson-Cohen, reports Deadline. The London-born actor is coming off his role as Luke Crain on Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, which – in its depiction of the character’s struggles with addiction and past trauma – reportedly impressed the film’s creative coalition enough to clinch the role. It certainly sounds like an applicable skill set to the Invisible Man’s gradual emotional descent into villainy and murder.

The Invisible Man is the biggest break yet for star Oliver Jackson-Cohen,

Blumhouse & Universal Find Their ‘Invisible Man’ In Oliver Jackson-Cohen
Exclusive:The Haunting of Hill House star Oliver Jackson-Cohen has scored the title role in Universal/Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man which begins production this month in Sydney, Australia.

That’s quite a casting coup considering that at one point during early development of this project at Universal, Johnny Depp was set to play the Invisible Man. Jackson-Cohen joins the already announced cast of Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Harriet Dyer and Storm Reid. We hear that the filmmakers were wowed by Jackson-Cohen’s turn as Luke Crain in The Haunting of Hill House. That Netflix series follows a fractured family as they confront haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it.

Jackson-Cohen’s credits also include the BBC drama Man in an Orange Shirt, NBC’s event series Emerald City, the NBC series Dracula, and the ITV mini-series Mr. Selfridge. Feature credits are Paco Arango’s The Healer,

‘Anna’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Sasha Luss, Helen Mirren, Luke Evans, Cillian Murphy, Lera Abova, Alexander Petrov, Nikita Pavlenk, Anna Krippa, Aleksey Maslodudov, Eric Godon, Ivan Franek, Jean-Baptiste Puech, Adrian Can | Written and Directed by Luc Besson

Luc Besson returns to cinema screens with his first, and presumably last, film he will be afforded to make after the colossal financial failure of his predeceasing feature Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, that has plunged his production company into chaos and, has been levelled a string of sexual assault allegations against the famed director whose credits include Leon and The Fifth Element. Besson’s latest, on paper at least, is exactly what he needs to fight against in his dark corner of sexual aggression. Gaining back an audience’s trust while also generating a significant profit margin to secure a future for his production company. However with Anna, his latest, Besson fails on both fronts.

Movie Review – Anna (2019)

Anna, 2019.

Directed by Luc Besson.

Starring Sasha Luss, Luke Evans, Cillian Murphy, Helen Mirren, Lera Abova and Eric Godon.

Synopsis:

A Russian woman escapes her abusive home when she is offered a chance at a new life if she agrees to work for the Kgb.

It’s fair to say that, if you’ve seen a female-led action movie in the last decade or two, you’ve basically already seen Anna – the new film from Luc Besson. This is a two-hour confection of standard, glossy thrills, peppered with energetic action sequences. And though that’s not particularly exciting, it is basically fine.

Sasha Luss is the titular Kgb hired muscle, plucked from an abusive partner by experienced operative Alex (Luke Evans) and given the opportunity to impress spy chief Olga (Helen Mirren). She’s soon on a mission in Paris where she infiltrates a modelling agency in order to get
