New Lockout Trailer: Get a Load of This Guy

The first American trailer for the sci-fi thriller Lockout makes eminently clear what the hard-boiled European original elided a bit: This is as close to an Escape From New York remake as any of us are likely to get.

Snake Plissken in space! Except now he's called Snow. And he has two eyes, both belonging to Guy Pearce in full wisecracking action-hero mode. He's the best! But a loose cannon. And Maggie Grace is the president's daughter. Held hostage in a prison riot. In a prison orbiting Earth. Before it plunges to Earth. Naturally. Whatever! It looks all right.


  • The Winchester says:

    Keep your Avengers and Dark Knight Rises, because THIS is gonna be the greatest movie of 2012.

    This can't come out soon enough!
