There was a brief teaser trailer for Lockout, the latest from Luc Besson’s company Europa, a couple months ago but now there’s a full trailer and consider me infinitely more excited. Guy Pearce stars as Snow, a criminal who is given a chance at freedom if he goes on a mission to rescue the President’s daughter from a maximum security prison that has been taken over by the inmates. The big catch is that the prison is a space station orbiting the Earth. I’m hearing a lot of people making comparisons to Escape from New York and Guy Pearce to Kurt Russell and I can definitely see it along with Europa’s most recent hit, Taken. I’m a fan of Guy Pearce and he looks like he’s gonna be a great, wise ass action hero in this. Check out the trailer below and the movie is out in April.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
