poster redemption

Okay, Jason Statham doesn’t actually play a hummingbird in his new film, but his name is Joe. The confusion comes from the film’s constantly morphing identity over the past few months. It’s going by the name Hummingbird in the UK and Crazy Joe in France, but US distributors have chosen to go with the far more generic Redemption. Check out the new trailer below.


Hummingbird Movie

Well this looks excellent. Hummingbird is the story of an ex-special forces soldier who ends up homeless, but it’s really the tale of Jason Statham doing a bunch of Jason Statham-esque stuff while shining a light on social injustice. It looks gritty and violent, but it also looks like it has a dramatic heart beating at its center. It’s also no surprise that it’s the first feature directing effort from Steve Knight, the writer of Eastern Promises and Dirty Pretty Things. Both were dark, bloody movies with a higher IQ than the regular rabble. Hopefully that’s what we’ll see here as well. Check out the trailer for yourself:
