It's tougher than ever to sell R-rated sci-fi movies to American moviegoers — just ask Vin Diesel about his battle with Universal to secure an R-rating for Riddick 3 or Ridley Scott about his ongoing fight with Fox to release Prometheus with an R-rating — let alone R-rated sci-fi movies from Europe made on a miniscule (by Hollywood standards) budget. Which is likely the reason why Europa Corp. has decided to market its new Luc Besson-produced sci-fi movie, Lockout, by releasing more than 1/10th of the film for free on the internet, first with the release of a 5-minute chunk of action from Snow's (Guy Pearce) Star Wars-esque shenanigans in space and now with the nearly five-minute opening sequence of the movie, which takes place primarily on Earth and has a decidedly Bourne Identity feel to it.
