There's been a lot of talk over the past year about the 99% and the 1% and all that, but if you think fiscal inequality is a new problem, just try telling that to Robin Hood. After all, the guy was stealing from the rich and giving to the poor back when wheels were square.
And now, thanks to Jason Statham, we have the latest version of the classic Robin Hood story, as the new YouTube trailer for "Hummingbird" shows the cinematic badass not just robbing from the rich but also smacking the hell out of them.

254: The number of combined victims of "Parker" star Jason Statham ass-kickings over his film career, as we've tallied and created visual representation for exclusively here on NextMovie.
What constitutes an 'ass-kicking'? Glad you asked. It ranges from as harmless as "incapacitating a bad guy to question him" to as devastating as "stabbing a bad guy in the neck." (Stabbings were deemed allowable because Statham is usually doing something cool with his knives, like throwing them or spinning them in his hand for no reason.)
Do guns count? Of course not.

A Jason Statham movie has a few certainties: Jason will beat the crap out of some bad guys. Jason will shoot other bad guys, and they will die from their gunshot wounds. And Jason will seduce a young lady or two.
I'm confident that Mr. Statham can beat people up. He's probably good at shooting things and making things blow up, too. It was the last part that produced some skepticism in me, having never heard any female friend of mine gush about Jason Statham the way they had about, say, Channing Tatum or Matt Damon or Steve Zahn.

This week: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris and more aging action heroes are back to blow things up in the explosive "The Expendables 2."
Also new this week is a collection of Quentin Tarantino movies handpicked by the filmmaker himself, the Blu-ray debut of 1975's "Zorro" starring Alain Delon and a Criterion Collection edition of the formerly maligned/recently praised 1980 Western "Heaven's Gate." Get More »
Ready to see Hollywood's resident tough guy Jason Statham kick even more ass? Good, cause ya know, there's just not enough of that these days.
The first trailer for Statham's latest violence romp, "Parker," has just dropped. In addition to presenting the gun-toting, fierce zinger-ringing Statham we all know and love so well, he's also pulling a bit of a "Robin Hood" act in the feature ... with himself as the beneficiary, of course.
Statham's Parker is an ethical thief who's got two rules: "don't steal from people who can't afford it" and "don't hurt people who don't deserve it." Get More »

The boys are back, and this time they brought some big reinforcements as "The Expendables 2" torpedoes its way into theaters.
Sylvester Stallone's mercenary-for-hire Barney Ross has the old (in some cases very old) team from the first film including Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and Terry Crews. Lending him an assist this time around are his former Planet Hollywood compatriots Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, along with "Delta Force" captain Chuck Norris and "Hunger Games" heartthrob Liam Hemsworth, all to do battle against Jean-Claude Van Damme. It's a veritable action lover's wet dream! Get More »
Dear lord, how did L.A. not collapse under the weight of all this testosterone?
It was manly men galore as Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme and other towers of power walked the red carpet in Hollywood in celebration of "The Expendables 2," the rough and tumble tale of dudes with guns, knives, bazookas and attitude.
Check out our collection of pics from the premiere and get ready for the bullet-ridden extravaganza that is "The Expendables 2," in theaters on Aug. 17.
What happens when you put the greatest action heroes of all time into one movie? You get the epic explosion of badassery that is "The Expendables 2."
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Jean-Claude Van Damme lead this sequel to the successful 2010 action film about a band of hired mercenaries. Although they're one cohesive unit, with so much testosterone gathered in one movie, we couldn't help but pit these actors against each other to see who can really be considered the most badass, based on their fighting style, muscle mass, studliness, weapons expertise and one-liners from their entire filmographies.
Whether they're a martial arts master, a skilled sniper or a bodacious bodybuilder, read on to see who's really the least expendable of "The Expendables 2" cast. Get More »
Manly men like action movies. And steak. And watching oiled-up gym rats wrestle until one is pinned down and submits to the other's brawny powers. (We'd say that men "love" these things, but manly men find that word too submissive.)
So, when Sylvester Stallone gathered some of the biggest names (and biceps) of the action star pantheon together for an epic ensemble piece entitled "The Expendables" back in 2010, he forged the manliest merger since the X chromosome collided with the Y. And on the heels of that triumph, "The Expendables 2" will be flooding theaters with testosterone yet again on Aug. 17. Get More »
