Lockout - Trailer
Director James MatherYear 2012Genre(s) Thriller
In the near future the world most secure prison MS1 houses the most dangerous prisoners on Earth, floating precariously above the atmosphere offering no chance of escape for the convicts. That is until one convict in particular makes things increasingly inconvenient for those below him on Earth as he manages to unlock the cells of each prisoner, with an ensuing mass riot making things even more uncomfortable for authoritarians. What's worse is that the President's daughter, Emilie Warnock, just so happens to be on board the galactic detention centre. A rescue operation must be formed and ex-agent Snow takes on the lone mission to ensure her safe return as well as restore order in the prison.
Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace head a cast that predominantly features brutish inmates of a futuristic prison that drifts aimlessly about the Earth's atmosphere. Pearce plays a maverick ex-government agent who in a bid to clear himself and re-earn his freedom agrees to undertake a dangerous mission to save the American President's daughter in this sci-fi prison break scenario.
Coming from the production team that brought the surprise sensation that was Taken, those involved in the film are looking to create a film of similar success this time with a sci-fi edge. By the looks of the trailer alone audiences look to be able to expect big explosions and effects within an interesting and not unoriginal storyline.
