Luc Besson‘s production company EuropaCorp has released the first five minutes of their latest slick action movie, Lockout. The clip highlights two of the three things I want from the movie. It’s funny and full of great action, often at the same time. However, for a movie set at a maximum security prison in outer space, this clip is sadly earthbound. You can see more science fiction-y action in previously released clips here, or hit the jump to watch the first five minutes. Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Vincent Regan, Joseph Gilgun, Lennie James, and Peter Stormare star, directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger. Lockout opens on April 13.
“I’m being beaten up by a guy called Rupert?” I love this Guy.
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.
