After a $150 million hit, Jason Statham needs The Beekeeper 2 to end his poor sequel streak


Jason Statham has a new franchise with The Beekeeper, and the potential sequel could be the key to breaking his bad sequel streak at the box office.

The action star has become synonymous with several major franchises over the course of his career. After being a piece in various larger pieces of IP, The Beekeeper is an example of Statham launching an original property with the potential for serialization. Updates on The Beekeeper 2 have surprisingly not come to this point, even though the first film has eclipsed the $150 million milestone at the box office.

Amazon MGM might not have given The Beekeeper’s sequel an official greenlight yet, but the success of the first film makes the odds of it being a franchise starter much higher. The studio is already working on a new action movie with Statham and director David Ayer that also involves Sylvester Stallone. However, it still seems likely that The Beekeeper 2 will be announced at some point given how much success the first film has had. Statham should be pushing for the sequel to happen, as it can help him snap a sequel trend.

Jason Statham’s Last 5 Sequels Declined At The Box Office Compared To Previous Movie

The reason that Jason Statham needs The Beekeeper 2 is that he is on a bad box office run when it comes to how his sequels perform. Mechanic: Resurrection was the last Statham movie sequel to outgross the previous installment, and that was back in 2016. He has since continued to find success as many sequels are among Jason Statham’s highest grossing movies of his entire career. However, that does not change the fact that every sequel (and spinoff) he’s made from The Fate of the Furious to Expendables 4 did not meet expectations.

Following Statham’s debut in the Fast Saga in Furious 7, The Fate of the Furious declined at the box office. The franchise’s next installment, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, then made even less. When Statham returned for Fast X, the sequel also declined from F9’s box office. The same box office decline hit Meg 2: The Trench, which dropped considerably from the first film’s major success. Finally, Expendables 4’s box office was a massive flop. The fact that The Beekeeper did so well financially is promising for the sequel to do even better.

The Beekeeper’s Success Shows How A Sequel Could Be Even Bigger For Jason Statham

With The Beekeeper’s box office success leading the film past $150 million in ticket sales, there is a path for the follow-up to be much bigger. This comes from the fact that audiences did not already have a relationship with this Jason Statham property, but now there clearly is a considerable amount of appreciation for it. There is even the potential for more fans to come once the movie releases on streaming. The Beekeeper 2 surpassing the original movie’s box office would be more plausible, as long as it maintains the elements of The Beekeeper audiences have loved.
