Here’s the first (subtitled in French) trailer for LOCK-OUT, a sci-fi action thriller — which seems to have a sense of humor.
A man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.
Starring Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Peter Stormare, Joseph Gilgun.
Directed by James Mather & Stephen St. Leger, from a screenplay by Luc Besson (THE FIFTH ELEMENT), Mather and St. Leger.
Due out April 20th, 2012 from EuropuaCorp. and Film District.
According to Coming Soon, Luc Besson (THE FIFTH ELEMENT) plans to revisit the SF genre with a new film.
In an interview with radio station Europe 1, he said he’s designing “creatures” for the project which he describes as “THE FIFTH ELEMENT to the 10th power”.
He hopes to begin the shooting the film in 2012 and 2013, with a 2014 release in mind.
Certainly the semi- farcical FIFTH ELEMENT was cramed full of strange creatures and imaginative designs, very much like a issue of Heavy Metal brought to life. Hopefully, the script for this unnamed feature will be given as much thought as its visual style.
