Behold the latest treat created for us by Luc Besson, the creative force behind Taken (one of our all-time favourite movies). His involvement alone alone has got us plenty excited about this film, which appears to embrace its own mindlessness to the fullest. Check out the trailer below.
Probably our favourite line from the trailer? "He's the best there is... but he's a loose cannon." At least you're left with no illusions about what sort of movie you're in for.
As you no doubt noticed, the plot is strikingly simple: all of Earth's worst criminals are kept in a space station prison. The President's daughter, played by Maggie Grace, visits said prison, and then all hell breaks loose. And Guy Pearce, in his role as the wise-cracking, smartarse Agent Snow, is the only one that can save her.
Two rather lengthy full clips of the movie have been made available, and they'll give you a pretty good idea of the sort of silliness we can expect from Luc Besson's latest film.
Watch the first five minutes of the movie below...
...and then check out this other promotional clip from further on in the movie.
It's doubtful that Lockout will win any Academy Awards this year, but it sure looks like a fun ride - we're looking forward to it!
