When the only person that ever cared for him kills herself after falling prey to a phishing scam and losing her life savings, a former operative of a clandestine organization called the Beekeepers (a special programme outside the chain of command), goes into revenge mode. From burning down an entire building housing a phishing centre, to fisticuffs and pumping bullets into anyone and anything remotely corrupt or tying someone to a vehicle primed to fall off a high-rise building, Jason Statham’s Beekeeper is on course-correction mode and coming up with innovative methods of killing people in his way. That’s about what the trailer of The Beekeeper is about.

The film, directed by David Aiyer, best known for action flicks like Sabotage, Fury and Suicide Squad, among others, is set to release in theatres on January 12, 2024. The film also stars Jeremy Irons, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Bobby Naderi, Minnie Driver, Phylicia Rashad and Josh Hutcherson, among others. The tagline of The Beekeeper, written by Kurt Wimmer, is ‘Expose the Corruption, protect the hive with the official synopsis describing the film as one man’s campaign for vengeance that takes on bigger stakes, once it is revealed that he’s a former operative of the clandestine organization known as Beekeepers.


Jason Statham is in his element as he goes about killing his way to top to root out entire corrupt systems. As a Beekeeper, when the system is out of balance, his job is to correct it. The bad guys, of course, will try their best to stop him, but no prizes for guessing who’s going to have the last laugh in this game of killings. Last month, Statham led the fourth instalment in the Expendables franchise, which did not fare well at the box office, prior to which he was seen fighting ginormous pre-historic megalodons in Meg 2: The Trench.
