Total Film just printed the above poster for new Jason Statham Brit-flick Hummingbird.
Stath plays Joey Jones an awol ex-special forces soldier in this directorial debut by Steven Knight, who wrote Dirty Pretty Things and Eastern Promises.
The plot is described as: "After witnessing his unit ripped to shreds by artillery fire in Afghanistan,
Joey Jones (Jason Statham) has been living on the streets of London, trying to
forget his past and stay of out trouble. On the run from a ruthless gang, he
breaks into the apartment of a wealthy man in Convent Garden and assumes his
upper-class identity. Just as Joey is on his way to making amends with his
friend and sponsor Sister Cristina, his pregnant girlfriend is found dead in the
river. Now, Joey must use his connections in the Chinese mob to find the man
responsible, stopping at nothing until justice is served."

This looks to be another film where Statham, while within his wheelhouse of action, is again continuing to try something different and interesting. A trait I cannot applaud too loudly or too highly.
It looks and sounds awesome. More as we hear more and you can check out the film when it opens in the UK on 17 May 2013.
