As the release date approaches near, Europacorp uploaded the first five minutes for Luc Besson-produced sci-fi actioner Lockout (formerly MS One: Maximum Security) at its official youtube channel. The opening wastes no time diving face forward right into the action with a small mix of tongue-in-cheek humor. Guy Pearce as a wisecracking anti-hero is a riot.
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.
FilmDistrict will release the film in theaters on April 13th. You'll find opening video embedded below.
