New Trailer For Guy Pearce Sci-Fi Actioner ‘Lockout’

It has been a long time since we remember Guy Pearce as ‘Mike’ from NEIGHBOURS but here he makes a return to science-fiction, his last effort being the disastrous THE TIME MACHINE (2002) remake. LOCKOUT, (or M.S. ONE: MAXIMUM SECURITY, depending on the country released) is co-written by Luc Besson and shares similarities to John Carpenter’s Snake Pliskin double ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and ESCAPE FROM L.A.

Here we have the first trailer for the futuristic film that follows ‘Snow’ (Pearce) wrongly convicted of a conspiracy against the U.S. Offered the chance to have his sentence quashed in a race-against-time; he must rescue the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from a prison in outer space, that is overrun with violent escaped convicts. It appears the only thing missing is Pearce in an eye-patch. Take a look.
LOCKOUT is released in the UK on the 13th April and is directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Ledger.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.

    I’m not sure what the other critics are saying, but THE TIME MACHINE was not disastrous. On the contrary, this movie was one of my personal all-time favorites. Guy Pearce did an amazing job with this fantastically deep story line. The graphics in this movie are superb and it takes you on quite the journey. The acting is not over the top and is realistic when placed in the time period(s) in which the movie is placed. This movie (thankfully) lacks the ridiculous modern-day over-drama, sex, and vulgarity that today’s movies have just to sell more tickets. I own THE TIME MACHINE and stumbled upon your article because I was looking around to see if an HD or Blu-ray version could be found online. Your usage of the word “disastrous” was quite frankly shocking to me, when I consider just how much we have enjoyed watching this timeless film.
