We’re happy to bring you three exclusive new images from the upcoming sci-fi thriller Lockout today. The film stars Guy Pearce as a wrongly-accused spy who must rescue the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from an orbiting prison. The film is almost like Taken in space, and in fact boasts the same producer as the Liam Neeson actioner, Luc Besson. The trailers released thus far have shown that we’re in for quite a bit of action, as well as a very witty, wise-crackin’ character from Pearce. I’m interested to see how the whole thing plays out, and these new images do a good job of teasing what’s ahead.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Peter Stormare. Lockout opens on April 20th.
Here’s the synopsis for Lockout:
Starring Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace and set in the near future, LOCKOUT follows a falsely convicted ex- government agent (Pearce), whose one chance at obtaining freedom lies in the dangerous mission of rescuing the President’s daughter (Grace) from rioting convicts at an outer space maximum security prison.
