Trailer Watch: Guy Pearce in Luc Besson’s Lockout (updated with official trailer and stupid new title)

Luc Besson’s recent-ish productions are very hit and miss, ranging from brainless fun (District B13, Unleashed, Taken) to brainless drivel (Transporter 2 & 3).

Lockout, his upcoming science fiction flick starring Guy Pearce, Peter Stormare, and Maggie Grace looks like it could go either way, but I like Pearce (and this trailer) well enough to give it a chance when it comes out. Look for around on April 20, 2012.

UPDATE (12/16): It seems that film has been renamed MS One: Maximum Security… uh, okay. Also, the earlier trailer was an early, leaked version that doesn’t quite reflect the finished film. Here’s a new, official one. Thanks to @Vanderlow58 for the heads up!

Now that we know a little more about the plot, I’m cringing a little (basically a ripoff of Escape from New York) but Besson has never been terribly strong with plot. So whatever.
