Every new trailer for Luc Besson’s Lockout is more exciting than the previous. This may have something to do with the movie essentially being Escape From New York in Space. Nothing wrong with that at all.
If you want a good laugh keep your ears open for the moment in the trailer where they actually describe Guy Pearce’s character, Snow, as a “loose cannon” who doesn’t play by the rules. Regardless of whether or not that’s true, having someone say that is hilarious.
Beyond that the movie also stars Maggie Q as the President’s daughter who needs rescuing and Peter Stormare as the crazy prisoner running the overtaken prison. The film is directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger. Luc Besson wrote the film with Mather and St. Leger.
We’ve posted trailers for this movie under the title MS One: Maximum Security. That was the original title of the film and if you’ve looked for information on it internationally, that is what the movie will be called out outside of the United States, if you’re curious.
Lockout (aka MS One: Maximum Security) is slated for an April 20 theatrical release.
