Guy Pearce Has an Interrogation Problem in the First Trailer For Lockout

When Luc Besson isn't directing standing ovation-worthy biopics these days, the French filmmaker is busy co-writing action thrillers for his studio EuropaCorp to produce like Taken, Transporter, Colombiana and up next Lockout -- the sci-fi adventure flick that sees Guy Pearce as a wrongly-accused government agent whose only shot at freedom comes at a very risky, space-age price.

The price being that Pearce's badass character -- who refuses to wilt under Peter Stormare's interrogation tactics in the above trailer -- must rescue the President's daughter from a space prison that has been overtaken by its own convicts. Judging from the preview, the gunfire-laden thriller features no less than three space crafts, two explosions, one highly choreographed bathtub stunt, a single escalator chase and three clever interrogation retorts from Pearce's character ("People love me -- just ask your wife.")

Lockout, co-written and co-directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, arrives in theaters April 13.

VERDICT: I'm all in for any film that combines brutal interrogation room violence with "your wife" jokes.

    This actually looks very nice and amusing, good trailer, although not sure what's the connection with the spaceships. Is it prison in space? Is it some kind of war with aliens? I am confused.
    And can anyone please give Maggie Grace a larger role where she actually talks and not just looking pretty?

    Good entry! I look forward to seeing more from you in the time. You have some very great ideas above.
