Guy Pearce Chews Even More Scenery (And I Mean That In The Best Possible Way) In The New Lock-Out Trailer

By Rob Payne | Trailers | December 15, 2011 | Comments ()


I have to agree with /Film that it plays very much like Escape From New York in space (Escape From Space?), or maybe Die Hard (Space Hard? Die Space?). Either way, it's pretty refreshing to see the wisecracking action hero make a comeback in something that actually looks pretty balls-to-zero-G-wall awesome. Even if it would be better if fellow "Lost" alum Emilie de Ravin (and fellow Aussie with Pearce) were playing the Space President's daughter instead of the interminable Maggie Grace. Maybe I just miss that shrill screams of "Chaaaawwwlie?!" in the night...

Anyway. Lock-Out is set to hit theaters on April 20, 2012. I don't know about the rest of you, but that sounds like the perfect release date.

Rob Payne also writes the indie comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar, and his ware can be purchased here. He plans to ensure he has that Friday off from work.
