Pearce(ing) Humor: Guy Pearce Is a Riot In ‘Lockout’


A trailer for the Luc Besson-produced sci-fi actioner Lockout is garnering positive buzz for first-time feature directors James Mather and Stephen St. Leger. The film Guy Pearce as a convicted U.S. government agent sent to rescue the president’s daughter from a space prison riot in exchange for his freedom.

The trailer serves as an introduction to Pearce’s character, an antihero with a surly sense of humor (think Escape from New York’s Snake Plissken and “LOST’s” James “Sawyer” Ford). The film, written by Besson with Mather, arrives in U.S. theaters on April 20, 2012.
