Sure the new full length trailer for the sci-fi action thriller LOCKOUT may not be as strong as the wise-cracking teaser we saw just a few months ago. However, the longer look only serves to confirm that we’re still totally excited about this film. While not an entirely original idea (shades of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK are at play here), it looks like fun. Guy Pearce and a sassy attitude?! We’re all in!
LOCKOUT follows a falsely convicted ex- government agent (Guy Pearce, MEMENTO), whose one chance at obtaining freedom lies in the dangerous mission of rescuing the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace, TAKEN) from rioting convicts at an outer space maximum security prison.
The futuristic action romp is from rising directors James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, and also stars Peter Stormare (ARMAGEDDON, upcoming HOW I SPENT MY SUMMER VACATION).
Take a look at the trailer below and share your thoughts. LOCKOUT will be in theaters on April 20.
