International Theatrical Trailer for Sci-Fi Thriller Lockout Starring Guy Pearce
12.16.11 by BJSprecher
Last week, we got our first look at Lockout, a new sci-fi movie produced by Luc Besson (The Transporter, Columbiana), in the form of an international teaser trailer that contained virtually no plot and only a smidgen of special effects, but a whole lot of British actor Guy Pearce looking tough, delivering quippy dialogue, and getting his face bashed in.
Now, a French theatrical trailer (in English) for the movie has been released that offers a brief explanation of the plot — the president's daughter (Maggie Grace) is trapped aboard an orbiting prison when a riot breaks out and only a wrongly convicted spy (Pearce) is desperate enough and crazy enough to attempt a rescue mission — more sci-fi goodness (cryogenic prison cells, spaceships, etc.); and much more of what was great about the teaser trailer: Pearce acting tough and delivering cheeky dialogue like, "Here's an apple and a gun. Don't talk to strangers; shoot them."
In addition to producing Lockout — or MS One: Maximum Security, as it's apparently called in France — Besson also co-wrote the movie with first-time feature co-directors James Mather and Stephen St. Leger. Peter Stormare (Dylan Dog: Dead of Night), Anne-Solenne Hatte (Callback), and Joseph Gilgun (U.K. TV's Misfits) also star.
