Cinema Royale: Talking ‘The Beekeeper’ And Why Jason Statham’s Latest Had Us Buzzing

Jason Statham has been pretty awesome for more than two decades, but is The Beekeeper his best movie yet? To talk about Statham’s latest occupational ass-kicker movie, which should be a loose-knit trilogy with The Transporter and The Mechanic, is my action homie Chris Bumbray of!

Of course, we talk about The Beekeeper and what makes it so amazing, the crazy mythology it sets up, the insane direction it takes, and the chances of Statham returning to kick the nest a second time! Are audiences sleeping on this one, or what? Is this Statham’s next great franchise? And what are the chances we can get David Ayer to come on and talk to us about it?

All of this and a lot more. You know how we do! We tend to veer off and talk about anything and everything under the cinematic sun!

All of this and more on a new episode of Cinema Royale!
