Watch: New Domestic Trailer for Sci-Fi 'Lockout' Starring Guy Pearce

Towards the end of December we caught another trailer for the sci-fi movie Escape from M.S. One, but here in the United States the film will be known as Lockout. And now we have another trailer for domestic audiences that brings the action again. The film stars Guy Pearce as a felon hired to go to a "Maximum Security" space station prison to rescue a woman, Maggie Grace. Guy Pearce hasn't really made the best choices in films lately, but I always look forward to his next project and this looks cool as hell. This could be a return to form for the actor and hopefully a surprisingly good sci-fi flick for 2012. Watch the trailer below.

Here's the new domestic trailer for James Mather and Stephen St. Leger's Lockout, from IGN:

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?

"It is impenetrable" That's what she said! Zing! A return to form?Has Pearce been struggling? It looks pretty good, liked the brief highway chase scenes.

you're right, Cred X, Pearce has hardly been struggling! his roles are always interesting, often challenging and always finely performed. but this seems like an odd choice. Pearce looks especially good in the trailers, but he's in a film with*that* guy on the voiceover and script samples such as 'there's only one man who can get her out. he's the best there is, but he's a loose cannon.' really? still want to see it, but i don't know what to make of this.

Kinda uncertain about the quality of that CG, but I'm game.  Taken was amazing; hoping for more of the same.

Guy Pearce looks like he bulked up. Wah-wah-wee-wah. (Quote from my wife)

Escape from L.A. meets the 21st century; he's got the attitude and everything. Looks good to me. I do hope the CG gets a little refined though.

You're right it doesn't look bad, but it's such a rip-off of Escape From L.A., why not just give John Carpenter credit?

That's the most bad-ass Guy Pearce has ever looked! I sure hope this movie delivers!

I had no idea he hadn't made the best choices. As far as I'm concerned he has made quite brilliant choices. He has taken smaller roles in big films like Hurt Locker and The King's Speech and who could forget Animal Kingdom and he looks to be the best part of Seeking Justice.  If he is struggling then I feel sorry for all the other actors haha.

I'm more excited about this movie cause of Joe Gilgun. I wasn't at all interested until I saw his character.

I was waiting for Kurt Russell to show up

The premise is ridiculous... and the dialog seems cheesy as hell, but as soon as I saw Besson's name and the word 'Taken' attached to it, I thought "Peh... might as well see it".

This looks like Pure Awesomeness.Cool concept. Looks like a great career move for Pearce. If it pans out to be a blockbuster it will catapult his bankability as a lead actor transforming him from Niche Indie dramatic acor to Quasi-Buff Action Badass.
