After Seven ‘Fast & Furious’ Movies, A ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Spinoff? Yes! (Trailer)

The fate of the world depends on Hobbs and Shaw working together? A second time? They really, REALLY must be out of their rabid rabbit azz MINDS!! Then again, looking at the trailer, this whole flick is an ‘Are you out of your #$%! mind???’ experience. And we are here for it!

After eight films that have amassed almost $5 billion worldwide, the Fast & Furious franchise now features its first stand-alone vehicle as Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles as Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw.

Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.

But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.

Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.

They got Idris running down the side of a skyscraper like it was flat land! Wow. Just wow. Do we even need fast cars at this point? Hahaaa!

The Dark Tower (Trailer)

Watching this trailer had us like, “Interesting,” until Elba’s character loaded his gun barrels by snatching falling bullets out of the air into the chambers… Then it was like, “F**K THAT! WE’RE IN!”

In a world full of superheroes, there’s only one Gunslinger. From the epic best-selling novels by Stephen King comes The Dark Tower.

There are other worlds than these. Stephen King’s The Dark Tower, the ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors, makes its launch to the big screen. The last Gunslinger, Roland Deschain (Idris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with Walter O’Dim, also known as the Man In Black (Matthew McConaughey), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. With the fate of the worlds at stake, good and evil will collide in the ultimate battle as only Roland can defend the Tower from the Man In Black.

Rock’em sock’em on an intergalactic other-worldly level!

But an action packed teaser for the next Thor chapter… YES!

Bastille Day (International Trailer)

Consider this a too Black, too strong ‘F#CK YOU’ to the Bond movie machinery that said ‘hell no’ to Idris Elba when he was up for the leading man role. We’ve been knowing dude could deliver big time super agent action. Ain’t the movie biz funny though? Instead of letting Brit Elba do a Brit fiction, we get him as a CIA operative (read: American) in France on a mission in “Bastille Day.”

Wow.

Actor ‘Ro Brooks’ Co-stars In Full-Length Toyota Avalon Ad with Idris Elba & In The Television Series ‘Sons Of Anarchy'(Video)

Last Saturday during my radio show our friend & actor “Ro Brooks” (The Wire, Sons Of Anarchy) made a surprise visit during our show.  He was in Atlanta filming a few top secret projects that at will be released in the near future. During the show he mentioned that he appears on the full-length version of the action-film influenced Toyota Avalon commercial with Idris Elba. I’ve seen the commercial on television, but didn’t actually see the full-length version of it until now.  He first appears around the 1:18 mark in this extended clip.

Ro Brooks also appears on the television series ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ as the character ‘Kettle’.  It’s a possibility his character ‘Kettle’ may get featured more on the show in future episodes.

‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom’ Starring Idris Elba (Long Trailer)

We posted the UK trailer for the coming ‘Mandela’ movie earlier on here. Needless to say it was an incredibly short teaser of what’s to come. The film currently slated to be released November 29th seeks to chronicle Mandela’s life from his childhood in a rural village to his eventually ascent as the first democratically elected President of South Africa. Early rumors about the screenplay have the focus of the film to be on on Mandela’s younger days in South Africa. Nelson Mandela recently turned 95 after suffering a few life threatening health related issues so hopefully he will be with us when the world celebrates as the film hits theaters. Of course we posted the short version earlier, but now take a peek at the official ‘Long Version’ of the movie trailer.

Idris Elba Speaks on his new film “Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (Video)

Actor & part-time DJ, Idris Elba, stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s show to speak on his new role in the new Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance film starring Nicholas Cage that opens in theaters this Friday February 17th.

WATCH: GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE (MOVIE TRAILER)

Ghost Rider: Spirit Of Vengeance (Film Trailer)


Marvel returns with the sequel to the first Ghost Rider film starring Nicholas Cage. This time Marvel character Method Man Johnny Blaze returns in Ghost Rider: The Spirit Of Vengeance which is due to hit theaters February 17th. I wasn’t too impressed with the first Ghost Rider film, but this trailer for the sequel appears very promising. A February release date for the movie could mean that’s it’s not that good, but I hope Marvel filmmakers surprise us on this one. After watching the trailer I’m already surprised to see actor Idris Elba in this this flick which makes it his second Marvel feature film appearance since the movie Thor that dropped last summer. Who knows? Every Wu-Tang Clan fans knows Johnny Blaze is one of Method Man’s alter egos just like Ghostface Killah’s alter ego is Tony Starks. Maybe Marvel will have a special cameo from Method Man in this film just like Ghostface had in Iron Man sequel before the scene was deleted from the theatrical version.

In case y’all forgot or just didn’t know, Idris Elba (the actor) was King Driis the recording artist & DJ before the acting thing took off. Here he delivers a new video for his song “Private Garden” which was produced by 9th Wonder & the video shot down in one of my favorite spots in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I’m still bangin’ his reggae tinged joint “Hold On” which was also produced by 9th Wonder that dropped about a year ago. Check it out at the link below if you missed it….

REWIND: King Driis aka Idris Elba – ‘Hold On’ (prod by 9th Wonder)


This joint literally dropped on the web about one year ago this week. After posting the Pharoahe Monch video featuring Idris Elba I just felt the urge to post this joint. JAYFORCE.COM wasn’t in existence a year ago so it’s only right to post this in case many of you have missed it. Before actor Idris Elba’s acting career jumped off he mostly paid his bills by DJing parties. In this particular song produced by 9th Wonder, Idris Elba steps in the role of an reggae influenced emcee by the name of King Driis. I enjoyed this joint when I first heard it & I still do so cop the REWIND Selektah!!!

Pharoahe Monch – ‘The Warning’ feat. Idris Elba (Video)


I don’t want to get into a habit of posting trailers for videos, but this is Pharoahe Monch we’re talking about. His new album W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) drops on March 22nd & the rumors are saying it’s gonna be a banger especially for people enjoying dope beatz & Lyrics. Actor Idris Elba is narrating the beginning of this clip. For those of you who don’t know Idris Elba has been a DJ for years before his acting career jumped off. He’s also doubles as a rap artist going by the name King Driis so I decided to post a bangers from him in the next post as a REWIND joint…
