Here at HCF we love Jason Statham, and we are always excited about his next movie, and so it gives me great pleasure to share with you the trailer for Hummingbird. However, here is Statham with a twist!
Not only does he appear in the beginning of the trailer with hair (long hair too!!), Hummingbird is less actioney and more drama based, and that is a rarity for The Stath. Normally inclined to punch, kick and drop witty one-liners, Hummingbird is Statham going for an emotional punch rather than a face punch, and it looks good!
Those starting to panic that he has gone soft, don’t worry, there is still time for the British bruiser to bring on the violence and threats, so rest assured Hummingbird will still be Statham at his best!
Written and directed by Steven Knight, appearing alongside Jason Statham are Lee Asquith-Coe, Vicky McClure, Benedict Wong and Senem Temiz. Hummingbird will arrive in UK cinemas 28th June 2013.
After witnessing his unit ripped to shreds by artillery fire in Afghanistan, Joey Jones (Jason Statham) has been living on the streets of London, trying to forget his past and stay of out trouble. On the run from a ruthless gang, he breaks into the apartment of a wealthy man in Convent Garden and assumes his upper-class identity. Just as Joey is on his way to making amends with his friend and sponsor Sister Cristina, his pregnant girlfriend is found dead in the river. Now, Joey must use his connections in the Chinese mob to find the man responsible, stopping at nothing until justice is served. From acclaimed screenwriter Steven Knight comes an elevated thriller about a broken man with a battered past, fighting to do what’s right, even if that means breaking his own rules.
