Jason Statham is a ruthless assassin seeking revenge against phishing scammers in the first trailer of upcoming thriller The Beekeeper

Jason Statham is out for revenge as he takes on phishing scammers in the first trailer of his upcoming thriller The Beekeeper, which dropped on Wednesday.

The English actor, 56, plays a heroic beekeeper who also happens to be a former operative of a secret organization known as ‘Beekeepers’.

The David Ayer-directed action film sees Statham, who stars as Mr. Clay, out for blood as he shoots his way through a number of scenes after his friend and former caretaker takes her life due to a phishing company scam.

The nearly three-minute long trailer opens up with a deceptively tranquil scene,  as Mr. Clay completes a beehive garden for his neighbor Mrs. Parker (Phylicia Rashad).

‘You’re a blessing, Mr. Clay,’ she tells him, ‘This place was crabgrass and weeds and you brought it back to life.’

Mr. Clay is then seen in a preset-day scene as he explains how Mrs. Parker was ‘like family’ and the only person who ‘took care’ of him.

The scene then flashes to a computer monitor alerting the user with a fraudulent message that their hard drive has been infected and providing a phone number to call.

It turns out it’s Mrs. Parkers computer and unfortunately she falls for the scam, calling the company who trick her into giving her banking information and stealing her money.

Mr. Clay explains how Mrs. Parker shot herself following the scam.

In the next scene he arrives at the building where the scammers have their office.

Wearing a navy trucker hat and holding two cans of gasoline he confronts a pair of security officers outside the building.

‘You know what they do here? Scamming the weakest in our society,’ he tells them.

They are unmoved and when they try to reach for their guns Mr. Clay disarms them with just his fists.

Burn it down: Inside the building an enraged Mr. Clay attaches two explosives to his gasoline cans as he tells the employees, 'I'm gonna burn this place to the ground'

Secret organization: ‘A “Beekeeper”, beekeeper? Well, that’s not good,’ she responds, implying she knows the secret organization Mr. Clay is part of

Inside the building an enraged Mr. Clay attaches two explosives to his gasoline cans as he tells the employees, ‘I’m gonna burn this place to the ground.’

They are seen screaming as they scramble to run while he pours gasoline everywhere.

He is then confronted by a man who asks other security personnel, ‘Will you stomp his a** out?’

But Mr. Clay disables him – this time with a telephone cord.

He then activates his explosives while gloriously driving away in his beat up truck as the building crumbles in the background.

In the next scene Jeremy Irons, who plays Westwyld, is pictured speaking on the phone to Minnie Driver.

‘You’re telling me one man did this? And the only thing you know is he’s a beekeeper,’ he asks her.

‘A “Beekeeper”, beekeeper? Well, that’s not good,’ she responds, implying she knows the secret organization Mr. Clay is part of.

Special program: The audience is then told about the underground organization. 'Beekeepers is a special program outside the chain of command'

The audience is then told about the underground organization.

‘Beekeepers is a special program outside the chain of command.’

‘I protect the hive. When the system is out of balance, I correct it.’

Another scene sees Mr. Clay in confrontation with the police.

‘We have laws for these things,’ a female agent tells him.

‘Until they fail. Then you have me,’ he states.

The next brutal scene sees Mr. Clay confront the ringleader of the scammers, as he viciously cuts his fingers off.

‘My fingers, he cut ’em off,’ the man says while crying.

Mr Clay then attaches him to his truck with a seatbelt and lets the truck fall off a building roof, with the man trailing behind as he falls to his death.

The rampage continue on as Mr. Clay confronts others, while stating, ‘This is much bigger than a little phishing scam.’

His assistant Debbie informs him the stolen money is going ‘all over the world. To people in finance, even government.’

A panicked Westwyld then tells his crew they must kill Mr. Clay ‘before he kills his way to the top.’

The action-packed trailer ends with Mr. Clay setting another person on fire before exploding a gas station.

The Beekeeper will hit theaters on January 12.
