Jason Statham’s beekeeper? In this movie, yes! But it still packs some serious punch!

Released in US cinemas, The Beekeeper starring Jason Statham has caught the attention of the North American public, not only for its lead actor, but also for its… intriguing plot.

Director David Ayer, known for his brutal and straightforward approach to action cinema, stars Statham as a beekeeper whose mysterious past resurfaces and plunges him into a maelstrom of revenge and personal justice.

Unexpected success across the Atlantic

With a modest budget estimated at $40 million or less, The Beekeeper had a more solid run at the box office. The film grossed $66.2 million in the United States and Canada, and $86.5 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $152.7 million. A remarkable performance, especially given the current economic context and fierce competition from other blockbusters.

The film brilliantly maintained its position in the top ten at the domestic box office for its first eight weeks, even reaching the top spot in its third week. This success is partly due to Jason Statham’s reputation for high-voltage action films that regularly attract fans of the genre.

The Beekeeper found its audience despite mixed reviews, with some praising Statham’s performance and David Ayer’s direction, while others criticized aspects of the script for lacking depth. However, the film proved once again that action films led by established stars remain a safe bet for studios and distributors.

In short, The Beekeeper confirms the trend of action movies being able to achieve solid performances at the box office and entertain their target audience.

Beekeeper is currently available on Prime Video.
