Dwayne Johnson Describes a Brutal Scene From HOBBS & SHAW That Had To Be Cut Out


Dwayne Johnson wanted to do some crazy hardcore and brutal stuff in Hobbs & Shaw. While we will get to see plenty insane fight and action sequences in the movie, one thing we won’t get to see is Johnson bite a guys eyeball out of his head and spit it out!

That’s right, Johnson’s Hobbs character was going to get super savage in the movie and bite a dude’s eye out! The actor shared a video showing a fight sequence being filmed, and this was the comment he left with the video:

“A lil’ behind the scenes taste of the HOBBS & SHAW savagery that takes place in SAMOA. 
This bludgeoning will be in the film, but unfortunately the scene where I bite the bad guy’s eye out and spit it on the dirt didn’t make it. MPAA ratings board forbid us to show it because it was too violent. True story. Plus, anytime you see a Samoan in a fight wearing their Lava Lava (traditional fabric I’m wearing around my waist) you know the other person is getting fucked up.”

You can watch the video below.

I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t have minded watching Johnson go cannibal.

In this film, Johnson and Jason Statham find themselves facing off with Idris Elba, who is a super-powered villain! Here’s the synopsis:

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.

Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film will be released on August 2nd, 2019!
