If this new trailer for Hummingbird is anything to go by it looks like aside from the usual breaking of limbs, Jason Statham actually gets the chance to flex some acting chops in this upcoming British drama.

Marking the directional debut of Steve Knight (screenwriter of the excellent Eastern Promises), Hummingbird is a London based story about a former Special Forces soldier, Joey who ends up homeless.

In an effort to get himself back on track, he breaks into a wealthy businessman’s home and re-invents himself. But in the process he gets dragged back down into the criminal underworld.

Hummingbird is due to hit our cinemas on 17th May.
