Watch: New Promo Featurette for Sci-Fi 'Lockout' with Guy Pearce
"Were you always this obnoxious?" A new featurette has debuted (via AICN) on the EuropaCorp YouTube for their upcoming sci-fi film M.S. One - Maximum Security, also known by many other titles, including Escape From M.S. One (in the US) and previously Lock-Out. The video includes interview segments with co-director Stephen St. Leger and focuses on the "badass" character of Snow, played by Guy Pearce. We've seen a few trailers for this before and it looks pretty damn cool already, but this spot gives us a look at just how insanely Snake Plissken-esque Pearce is. It also stars Maggie Grace & Peter Stormare. Enjoy!
Watch the new featurette for Escape From M.S. One, or M.S. One - Maximum Security, 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.
Escape From M.S. One (or also known as Lock-Out, or M.S. One - Maximum Security) 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 Escape From M.S. One in the US, and had initially set an April 20th release date this spring. We'll let you know if the release changes at all.

I'd rather have Guy than Mark.

I'd rather have Nathan Fillion than Mark or Guy.

I'd have them all in a 'man-wich'

It still blows me away that they have still not made an uncharted movie with Fillion. I mean he is getting older but still perfect for that part. Its hard to understand why the studios dont see it. Most uncharted fans cried Fillion a million times. But whats new, they never listen they dont care. Too bad...

Escape from New York err I mean M.S. One reminds me of another story but I cant put my finger on it.

I thought this is the lock-out or something.

The studios don't want fillion cause he sucks. If they were gonna get a nobody like fillion then they would be better off getting Nolan North. At Least Drake would match his voice. I really don't understand why people think Fillion would make a great Drake. He does not look like him and people say he acts just like drake, but I don't see it. But I've not watched a lot of fillion's work either because I don't find him entertaining to say the least. I'm actually a huge Uncharted fan too, but I don't agree with fillion in the slightest. Of course People don't say Christian Bale would make a great Solid Snake but he would even know he looks just like Solid Snake. Whalberg is fine with me. I've seen The Other guys, I know he can be funny. I've also seen the Fighter so I know he's a great actor too. Wayyy better choice than fillion. Even Bradley Cooper is a better choice. Any ways this movie looks kick-ass and I'll be happy to see another Guy Pearce movie.

Fillion is a good actor. And you should watch something of his before saying that he sucks, it just might make people to take you more seriously.

I have, I didn't say I haven't watched any of his work otherwise I wouldn't have said anything. I've seen Firefly which he's most accomplished for apparently and it wasn't that great. Maybe you should reread some things before you comment. I might not write you off as such a joke next time.

WHALBURG!?....buh? did you see Max Payne?

Looks like Fortress (Christopher Lambert) and Escape From New York rolled into one.

I'm looking forward to this. I've always liked Guy Pierce; I think he deserves a bit more leading roles. This really reminds me of late eighties early nineties action movies. His character makes me think of John McClane most of all. He has that sort of worn out vibe.
