Watch: First International Trailer for Sci-Fi 'Lockout' with Guy Pearce
"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?
