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."

When his former crewmembers heist his latest score and leave him for the vulchers, Parker allies with Jennifer Lopez's Leslie to get even. He'll take an alias, a faux Texan accent and a cowboy hat on the road to boost the gang's next get and exact a little revenge along the way.

Forget the repetitiveness of his threat - "When I say I'll do something, I always follow through. Always" - this bandit means business.

Directed by Taylor Hackford (Oscar-winning director of "Ray") and featuring Michael Chiklis, Nick Nolte and Wendell Pierce, the flick hits theaters on Jan. 25, 2013.
