Lockout Trailer

"Don't flatter yourself, I don't like anybody." An international trailer has popped up via YouTube for a sci-fi thriller from Luc Besson called Lockout, starring Guy Pearce. It's another action-thriller with a sci-fi twist, about a high security prison orbiting in space that some badass convict must go into to save the president's daughter, played literally by the same girl taken in Taken, Maggie Grace, who we barely get to see. Yes, this is basically Escape from New York with Pearce and Peter Stormare, but it doesn't look half bad. The action sci-fi stuff at the end looks pretty damn cool, but I need to see this in high def. Take a look!

Watch the first international trailer for James Mather & Stephen St. Leger's Lockout, via YouTube:

A man (Pearce) wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the US is offered freedom if he can rescue the president's daughter (Grace) from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.

Lockout (or Lock-Out) is directed by French cinematographers James Mather & Stephen St. Leger, of only the short Prey Alone, making their feature directorial debut. The screenplay was co-written by Mather & St. Leger and filmmaker Luc Besson, who also executive produced the film at Europa Corp. FilmDistrict is releasing Lockout in the US, and has set an April 20th, 2012 release next year. Look good to anyone?

  • Ha! loved the punching intro... and the: "I guess thats why they call it the punchline" xD
  • Xerxexx
    I really liked how they did the cast intro whilst Pearce gets punched...epic.
  • Justin Hollender
    Did anybody else get the feeling that Guy Pearce was trying to act like Brad Pitt?
    • Egis
      :)) oh, i did, instantly
    • Tunptl
      didn't get it at first...but see what you're saying...bit of a Pitt vibe
    • VVS
      ha! I was thinking "boy he really is going for a Brad Pitt type of thing there" Didnt think anybody would notice. 
    • Thexn
      That was exactly what I was thinking after the first hit.  Had a total "Tyler Durden" feel to it.
  • Lars
    LOL, this was an epic trailer. I'm sold. That was a brilliant way to start the trailer. The Sci-Fi elements don't seem to mesh 100%, but I am so there for this. Looks great!
  • guest
    oh man reading the little description at the bottom made it sound cheesy, at " outer space prison"
  • Anonymous
    Looks impressive! ie. Looks like a fairly big production. So a big thumbs-up in terms of first impressions.
  • tir na nog
    Looks alright,kind of reminds me of fortress 2,not a bad sci-fi.
  • HD version if anyone has it please, thank you!
  • Gcx
    The action sci-fi stuff at the end looks pretty average/bad, but the beginning of the trailer is damn cool eh.
  • David Banner
    For a second there, I thought it was a sequel to "Dante 01".

    Guy Pearce in space? Throbbing boner alert!!! Can't wait.
  • Anonymous
    This might not be a great movie but that was a great trailer.
  • Josef
    Anyone else think Escape from New York meets Demolition man in space?
  • Matlyles
    "His name was fuck you.. he was asian" ha! that was funny as hell
  • Alex C.
    Looks like a badly done, seen-a-thousand-times SF B-movie from 1985. And by the way, until when will we have movies with sound in space? Bah.
  • Runiepoouk
    sound exists in the oxygenated cabin, stupid comment. Trailer was pimp but it is very reminiscent of the scene in the basement in fight club. Guy pierce is a hero mind
    • Alex C.
      I was obviously not referring to closed, oxygenated (...) environments, but about sounds in outer space (engine noises, explosions, artillery etc.). Stupid comment.
  • grimjob
    I love Guy Pearce. Luc Besson makes some solid films.  Will definitely see this!
  • For those interested, this is their only other work, the short Prey Alone. I actually stumbled upon this not long after they released it...gotta say the tones and overall look of Prey Alone compared to this trailer are pretty similar.
