Jason Statham will be protecting his bees on the telly, as The Beekeeper’s Sky Cinema debut is now confirmed in the UK.

It’s been quite lovely to report on The Beekeeper this year in particular, the action thriller starring Jason Statham where The Stath, well, keeps bees. As we’ve written several times on this site already this year alone, it’s a really good movie, with The Statham back to the kind of in-camera action that he built his career up on.

Directed by David Ayer – who we spoke to for a podcast special here – there’s much to enjoy with The Beekeeper, and hopes are high for a sequel too. Its solid box office returns on a modest budget certainly help in that department.

In the UK, the film was released by Sky Cinema into UK cinemas in early January. Sky is giving its cinema released films a 45 day theatrical window. Those 45 days have ticked by, and it’s now been confirmed that The Beekeeper will be arriving on Sky Cinema from this Friday, 8th March. It’ll also be on the NOW service as well, which is supposed to be written in block capitals according to this. Thus, I’ll oblige.

Here’s my rather enthusiastic review of the film, if you need a primer on it.

And there’s a synopsis that Sky has offered, ahead of the movie’s television debut in the UK…

In The Beekeeper, one man’s brutal campaign for vengeance takes on national stakes after he is revealed to be a former operative of a powerful and clandestine organization known as “Beekeepers”.

A fair summation. Just the actual film has actual bees in it, so don’t think the thing is pulling a fast one on you there.

Emmy Raver-Lampman, Josh Hutcherson, Bobby Naderi, Minnie Driver, Phylicia Rashad and Academy Award-winner Jeremy Irons star alongside The Statham in the movie. If you’ve not had the pleasure yet, enjoy…
