Produced by Luc Besson, sci-fi thriller Lockout stars Guy Pearce, a wrongly-accused convict who is offered freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from an outer space prison taken over by rioting inmates.
The trailer doesn’t look too bad although it mostly consists of Pearce trading wisecracks while getting the snot punched out of him. We do get glimpses of the sci-fi elements but they sort of look like B-movie fare so I’m not sure what to think of this preview. The script was written by Besson and co-directors James Mather and Stephen St. Leger so I would expect the usual action/adventure with sci-fi twist that we have become accustomed with Besson.
FilmDistrict will bring Lockout to theaters on April 20th, 2012. Check out the trailer below [via FirstShowing]:
