Lost in the scrum of blockbusters and sequels that are starting to pour into theaters on a weekly basis is the upcoming sci-fi action movie Lockout. Co-written and produced by Luc Besson (who co-wrote and produced the hit thriller Taken and co-wrote and directed The Fifth Element), Lockout follows Guy Pearce as Snow, a government agent falsely convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage. Snow is offered his freedom in exchange for saving the President's daughter from a space prison that has been overrun by convicts.
Much has been made of the derivative nature of Lockout's plot, but the five-minute WonderCon clip showed that Pearce's portrayal of the anti-hero Snow and the movie's action (directed by newcomers James Mather and Stephen St. Leger), just might be worth the price of admission. Now, two more preview clips have been revealed to help pique interest. The first has more of Pearce's "loose cannon" style as he tries to disguise the President's daughter Emilie (Maggie Grace) and has to get a little physical to get the job done. watch the clips >> Posted 04.04.12 by Ryan
