Guy Pearce Ready for Some Action on First Poster for Sci-Fi 'Lockout'

Just last month we got a taste for the sci-fi action to come in Lockout (or Escape from M.S. One as it's called internationally) starring Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace. The film follows a falsely convicted ex- government agent (Pearce), whose one chance at obtaining freedom lies in the dangerous mission of rescuing the President’s daughter (Grace) from rioting convicts at an outer space maximum security prison. Now we have the stylish first poster for the flick straight from MTV. It's almost a throwback to action posters from the 90's with the flaming embers and explosions abound, plus one big ass gun. See it below!

Here's the poster for James Mather and Stephen St. Leger's Lockout, via MTV:

Lockout - Theatrical Poster

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?
