Five minutes from the upcoming sci-fi actioner film Lockout have gone online. The footage is the same clip that was shown earlier today at WonderCon, and highlights a scene involving Guy Pearce‘s character breaking into a space prison. Pearce plays a wrongly-accused spy who must rescue the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from the orbiting prison. Produced by Luc Besson, the film looks like a sufficiently fun thriller buoyed by Pearce’s wise-cracking lead character. Though the domestic trailers are all action, the international trailers highlight the charisma of Pearce and the fun rapport he has with Grace’s character. This clip shows more of Pearce’s appealing work, which leads me to believe that Lockout is much more than space explosions.
Hit the jump to watch five minutes from the film. Lockout opens on April 20th.
