Excited for the release of Lockout this weekend? The first 5 minutes are now online and introduce us to Guy Pearce as ex-government agent Snow. Produced by Luc Besson, Lockout looks to be heavily inspired by Escape From New York and we're interested to see how it turns out.

“Starring Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace and set in the near future, LOCKOUT follows a falsely convicted ex- government agent (Pearce), whose one chance at obtaining freedom lies in the dangerous mission of rescuing the President’s daughter (Grace) from rioting convicts at an outer space maximum security prison.”

Lockout will be released to theaters on April 13th, and  is directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger. The main cast includes Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Peter Stormare, Vincent Regan, Lennie James, Joseph Gilgun, and Anne-Solenne Hatte.
