So yeah, obviously a lot to discuss there. As we can see, Statham’s beekeeping appears to be a ruse of some kind as he’s actually an operative of a secret organization, and his purpose is to kick ass in the name of the underdog, it seems. And kick ass he does! This is three full minutes of an escalating body count, with increasingly wild kills and jaw-dropping moments. This pairing of Ayer and Statham seems to be a great one, and this may well be the first must-see movie of 2024 since it arrives in early January.
It’s also worth mentioning that MGM has released an above-average poster for the film as well, which boasts one heck of a tagline. You can check it out for yourself below. The brief synopsis for the film reads as follows:
In The Beekeeper, one man’s brutal campaign for vengeance takes on national stakes after he is revealed to be a former operative of a powerful and clandestine organization known as “Beekeepers.”
The cast also includes Emmy Raver-Lampman (“The Umbrella Academy”), Josh Hutcherson (“Future Man”), Bobby Naderi (“Bright”), Minnie Driver (“Good Will Hunting”), Phylicia Rashad (“Creed”), and Jeremy Irons (“Die Hard with a Vengeance”). Bill Block, Statham, Ayer, Chris Long, and screenwriter Kurt Wimmer (“Equilibrium,” “Law Abiding Citizen”) are on board as producers, with Andrew Golov, Thom Zadra, and Mark Birmingham serving as executive producers.
“The Beekeeper” is set to hit theaters on January 12, 2024.
