10 Movies We're Looking Forward To: January 2013

January Preview - Parker

Stop me if you've heard this one before: Jason Statham plays a professional criminal with a unique code of ethics who is double-crossed by his own employers and goes on a quest for revenge. Yes, Parker has the makings of a by-the-numbers Statham film, but it could also be the start of something new for the action star and director Taylor Hackford.

Based on the novel 'Flashfire' by Donald E. Westlake, this particular tale pairs Statham's Parker (the same character Mel Gibson played in the film Payback) up with Jennifer Lopez, as he tries to pull off a heist and in the process beat out the employers that left him for dead.
