You know what I like most about this extended 5-minute clip from James Mather and Stephen St. Leger’s sci-fi actioner “Lockout”? The fact that we know Snow (Guy Pearce’s character in the movie) is an uber badass, but he’s also a smart-aleck, and at the same time gets queasy around queasy things, and hesitant around, say, killer turbines that can slice him in half if he falls into them. I like this guy.
Pearce plays Snow, a con who is sent into outer space to rescue the President’s daughter (Maggie Grace), who finds herself caught in a prison break at a super duper space prison. I guess it needed to be just a tad more super duper. Our hero has to save the day, or die trying. I’m guessing failure is not much of an option here for our man Snow, being that he’s wholly disposable and whatnot.
Also starring Maggie Grace, Joseph Gilgun, Peter Stormare, Lennie James, Vincent Regan, Tim Plester, and Anne-Solenne Hatte.
Coming to the rescue on April 13, 2012.
