New Lockout Trailer.. Snake Plissken In Space

I have to say that, despite the fact that Lockout looks like it is a direct rip-off of Escape From New York just set in space, it looks highly entertaining.  This Luc Besson produced sci-fi action thriller stars Guy Pearce as Snow, a snarky mercenary sent to rescue the daughter of the President (aka Snake Plissken).  I honestly do not mind the fact that this looks lifted right from John Carpenter’s classic as it just looks like a hell of a lot fun.  Luc Besson co-writes and produces the film which is an upside for me as well since I tend to enjoy films he’s involved with.  They aren’t always perfect and can be downright silly at times but they generally have a really enjoyable quality to them.  I’m definitely in for this movie.
