Thieves play dirty. Tigers play dirtier.

In case you didn't already know (and, honestly, that may have been the case), Jason Statham is apparently quite the desirable gent. But his bald-headed, British-accented, two-fisted, high-kicking charm can't hold a candle to the power and appeal of a Bengal tiger.

The scene-stealing CGI creation of "Life of Pi" joins forces with Jennifer Lopez (it sort of oddly makes sense, doesn't it?) in this Beauty and the Beast reimagining of "Parker," the new crime thriller opening Jan. 25. We knew Statham was a cool cat and all, but come on!
