“The Rundown” is a weekly column that covers the most significant and peculiar events of the week in the entertainment industry. The contents of the column may vary, and sometimes they may not be related to entertainment. Nevertheless, the primary goal is to have some fun on Fridays.
In Jason Statham’s movies, his character’s profession is always reflected in the title. For instance, “The Transporter” involves him transporting, “Spy” has him playing a spy, and “The Mechanic” portrays him as an assassin. His next film, “The Beekeeper,” directed by David Ayer, follows the same trend. According to various trade publications, the movie revolves around Statham’s character, who used to work for a secret organization called “Beekeepers.” The plot includes a series of violent encounters, which ultimately affect the country.
Although the storyline is unclear, one description mentions that the movie is “deeply steeped in the mythology of Bee Keeping.” Despite not understanding what that means, the author is highly anticipating the film. A trailer for the movie is available, which does not disappoint and further strengthens the excitement for the release.
The trailer for a new action movie features Jason Statham as a Beekeeper who is part of a secret society that intervenes when the law fails. After a woman he cares about, played by Phylicia Rashad, commits suicide due to being scammed out of her savings by a criminal organization led by Jeremy Irons, Statham seeks revenge. The trailer includes scenes of Statham fighting multiple people at once and memorable dialogue such as “You’re telling me one man did this?” and “We have to kill him before he kills his way to the top.” The trailer has caused excitement among fans of Statham and action movies in general.
Do you see the humor in this? The main character is a beekeeper and he is using honey as a weapon. I am so excited for this movie that I am planning to rent out an entire theater and dress up as a beekeeper with my friends. Let’s make this the biggest movie of the year and convince the producers to make sequels like they did with John Wick. We need to support the cinematic industry and this movie seems like a great way to do it. Moving on to item number two, The Morning Show is extremely impressive.
The Morning Show is arguably my favorite TV show, despite not actually watching it. I attempted to get into it during the first season but found it overwhelming. However, I’ve been following this new season thanks to Jon Hamm’s appearances and episode summaries. This week’s episode sounds incredible, with Reese Witherspoon’s character keeping a big secret about the insurrection and choosing to sit on the story due to personal reasons. It’s wild and a good reminder of how crazy the last few years have been. On the other hand, Reservation Dogs just wrapped up its three-season run, and it was truly special. Creator Sterlin Harjo shared in an interview how death connects people and how the experience of taking care of loved ones is passed down through generations. Despite being a silly comedy, it was one of the best and most touching shows I’ve ever seen. Lastly, Only Murders in the Building is a comforting and enjoyable watch, like a warm blanket on a cold day.
Here are three things to know about Only Murders in the Building: firstly, its third season just ended with a cliffhanger; secondly, The Ringer’s Brian Phillips wrote an engaging article about how the show is a cozy mystery and offers a comforting escape from the world; and thirdly, it features an idyllic version of New York that is reminiscent of Wes Anderson’s The Royal Tenenbaums. Additionally, the show boasts impressive guest stars and Paul Rudd’s acting skills are on full display. The writer also notes that there seems to be a trend of comedies about murder, with another show called The Afterparty on Apple TV. Finally, the writer shares a TikTok video where Martin Scorsese’s daughter quizzes the director on modern slang and suggests that a show where famous older relatives are quizzed on pop culture could be entertaining.
