You know, the more I see of Lockout, the more I simply cannot wait to see it. Everything about this flick is just getting better with each clip and trailer, and so far I simply love everything about it. Guy Pearce is looking totally brilliant in the lead role, bringing some terrific characteristics and a great sense of humour. Man this is gonna be awesome!
Here we have two five minute clips to keep you going until the films release here in the UK on 20th April. The first clip is the jaw dropping opening five minutes, which contains more edge of your seat action than most full length films! What a way to open a film, and if the makers keep up this sort of level of thrills, then Lockout could be up there with the best the action sci-fi genre has to offer this year. The second clip was shown at the recent Wondercon, which shows an extended version of a clip posted right here a few weeks ago. Check them both out below, and enjoy!
Pearce stars alongside Maggie Grace, Peter Stormare, Joseph Gilgun, Lennie James and Vincent Regan. James Mather and Stephen St Leger direct, and the pair also co-wrote the script with Luc Besson. Besson also produced the film, and you can see his stamp all over it.
