Admittedly, we don’t know if this will be a good movie or not. There are, however, two things that put it on the track to be at least popcorn good. First, there is Guy Pearce who it’s always good to see in a movie. Second, there is the fact the Luc Bresson is writing and producing the film, mostly it’s nice to see him return to Sci-Fi. He was behind The Fifth Element and the throat-chopping glory of Taken.
Pearce plays a government agent who is wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage. However, he’s offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.
Lockout is due out in 2012 on April 20.
