Hunker down, readers! We’ve got a bunch of clips to show you. While we’d rather you just go and see LOCKOUT when it comes out on April 13, but we’d like to give you just a taste of the fun you’ll see on the big screen. Since we’ve been talking about it for months now, you are probably already familiar with the film’s premise: In order to be exonerated for a crime he didn’t commit, loose cannon ex-government agency Snow (Guy Pearce) must rescue the President’s daughter, Emilie (Maggie Grace), from an outer space maximum security prison after it is taken over by its hardened prisoners.
LOCKOUT was produced by Luc Besson (THE FIFTH ELEMENT) who also produced the mega-hit TAKEN. The film also stars Peter Stormare, of FARGO and THE BIG LEBOWSKI.
In the first clip, provided by MTV, Snow and Emilie have lost their way through the prison’s maze-like air vents they’ve been using to escape. Check out their witty banter below. Cinephiles will note the homage to the 80’s classic, ROMANCING THE STONE.
The second clip, entitled “Mutiny.” Shows how the prisoners take over MS-ONE.
In the third clip, Snow is fixing up Emilie’s bum leg that was shot. And the sexual tension/ witty banter continues.
And the scene continues here:
The fourth clip, entitled “Enough Foreplay”, has Snow giving Emilie mouth to mouth after she has passed out due to lack of oxygen in the chamber she’s been hiding in.
In “Haircut,” in order to sneak Emilie through some rough “waters” to find his former partner, Snow must disguise Emilie as a man…. Hilarity ensues:
LOCKOUT shouldn’t face too much opposition at the box office when it opens on April 13. It goes up against the likes of DETENTION, CABIN IN THE WOODS, and THE THREE STOOGES. We think you should lock down your film choice that week, and choose this film. It’s a total blast!
