Jason Statham is back doing what he does best in The Beekeeper, a white-knuckle new action thriller from David Ayer – the director behind Suicide Squad, Fury, and the outstanding End of Watch. This time around, everyone’s favourite tough guy is out for vengeance, leaving a trail of bruised and bloodied bad guys in his wake, and we can’t wait to take in all the hits when The Beekeeper lands in cinemas on January 11th. Fortunately, you may not have to wait that long, as Roadshow Films has 20 double passes on offer for lucky Man of Many readers to attend an exclusive pre-release screening on January 9th at Event Cinemas on Sydney’s George St. Read to discover how you can win!
With director Ayer’s uniquely gritty and brutal take on action holding centre stage, The Beekeeper casts Statham in the role of Adam Clay, a man out to avenge his friend after she commits suicide in the wake of falling victim to a phishing scam. Much to the dismay of those in his crosshairs, Statham’s Clay is soon revealed to be a former operative of a powerful and clandestine organisation known as “Beekeepers.”
Things go from bad to worse for the film’s antagonists as Clay discovers the operation responsible for his friend’s death is just one small part of a much larger conspiracy, so he sets about busting skulls, removing fingers, and demolishing buildings while on a one-man rampage. Naturally.
Joined by a star-studded cast that includes Jeremy Irons (the only man who could follow in Alan Rickman’s villainous footsteps – see Die Hard: With a Vengeance), Josh Hutcherson, Minnie Driver, and Phylicia Rashad, The Beekeeper finds Statham is in his element, muttering his dialogue just above a whisper and letting his fists do most of the talking as he dispatches hapless foes in increasingly inventive ways.
For your chance to see Statham do his thing and do it brutally well, simply fill out your details in the entry form below. We have 20 double passes to the exclusive preview screening on January 9th at Event Cinemas, George St, and (for those who can’t make it to Sydney) we have an additional 10 double passes to see the film when it hits cinemas from January 11th. Good luck!
