AICN Exclusive! Here's Some Pics From LOCKOUT With Guy Pearce!

Nordling here.

Sure, it's an obvious play off ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, but the trailer is all kinds of fun, and if the phrase "trampolining your wife" enters the public vernacular I'm all for it.  LOCKOUT opens April, 2012, and here's some exclusive photos for you to enjoy (click to embiggen!):

Hopefully the movie is as fun as the trailers we've seen so far.  LOCKOUT opens April 20, 2012.

Nordling, out.  Follow me on Twitter!

    Isn't this the third time we've heard about this movie and how much "fun" it looks and how the trailer looks "fun" and how much "fun" we will all have watching an obvious Escape from New York ripoff? (But, hey, who cares? It looks like "fun"!) OK, got it. Movie looks fun. Except, does it really? Do we all have to agree on that? I think it looks horrible. And this much time and attention paid to a Guy Pearce film? Really?

  • Feb. 20, 2012, 11:56 a.m. CST

    this is so totally a throwback kind of movie...i'm in!


    a no apologies, ridiculous sci-fi action flick the likes we haven't seen since the 80's. and guy pearce!- he should totally take over the Snake mythology. i mean, this totally looks like the next logical 'escape from' flick, done without rights to the Snake name....

  • Feb. 20, 2012, 11:56 a.m. CST

    Yeah, the trailer for this won me over.

    by bubcus

    I'll see this.

    Remake mash-up?

    by Sumatran_Rat_Monkey

    Escape from New York 1 and 2 combined with Outland with a dash of No Escape?

    All I wanna know is...

    If It's As Badass as The Trailer

    by Crow3711

    I will really enjoy this movie. Excited.

    It looks more Die Hard than Escape From New York

    by xannibal

    I mean, Pliskin (sp?) wasn't this much of a smart-ass.

    Wait a minute, shouldn't this be another John Carter article?

    by Jaster Mareel

    Isn't it some sort of rule that no more than 8 articles are allowed to go by without a John Carter one?

    Yet another fanboy man-crush has taken over. . .

    by Nice Marmot

    If this didn't star Guy Pearce there'd be 99.8 % negativity about this thing. I'll still check it out though.

  • Feb. 20, 2012, 12:20 p.m. CST

    spoiler theory- the president's daughter is in on it.


    probably part of some political terrorist faction, staging the kidnapping or takeover or whatever for some reason or other....

    In the girl's enlarged pic...

    by Fremen

    her hair looks like it's been recently glazed, if you know what I mean. She must have just come from Dunkin' Donuts.

    By "fun" you mean "impossibly stupid", right?

    by Mel

    I know this site wouldn't exist unless you shilled for dumb movies like this. Not complaining, that's just the way business works. We need some kind of code system where you can tell us what you really think without letting the studio know how shitty you think their movies truly is.

  • Sure are a lot of white people in this prison. Reminds me of Oz!

  • Feb. 20, 2012, 12:56 p.m. CST

    this will probably be the best movie ever made

    by Pipple

    Escape from butcher bay meets alien 3 meets die hard meets metal gear = win.

    He's a loose cannon, but he's the best there is.

    by gotilk

    In order to get away with that writing crime, this had better either be Escape From New York or better. Don't get me wrong, it looks great. But that line sounds like something out of McGruber. I don't even know what the dangers/benefits are of an actual loose cannon, but I would absolutely love a scene in which it is explained that he worded it wrong. He isn't A loose cannon, he in fact OWNS A loose cannon. Then we see him in his back yard with said cannon, trying to fire it or something. It's loose, it's flying around. Things are exploding. He's cursing at it. Cut back to scene in military office. How all they need is a scene in which he complains that no matter how hard he tries to escape his (past, crimes, the war, etc) they keep trying to pull him back in. Or.. *I paid my dues, General. I'm done.* It may sound like I'm nitpicking, but I actually love that shit. If they play it right and give us a genuinely HARD action flick with some great humor, I'll be there with bells on. And I don't take wearing bells lightly. They may make me feel pretty, but they just don't go well with my usual attire.

  • Feb. 20, 2012, 12:59 p.m. CST

    I give.

    by gotilk

    I HAVE TO watch Escape From New York now. Gahd I love that movie.

    This film looks stooopid

    by Ingvar Claesson

    Enough said When will we see some coverage of serious films? Maybe I'm getting old, but this infantile BS sets back my hope for mankind by at least 2000 years

SORT IT OUT HOLLYWOOD. I want Guy to star in a movie where he plays a super ninja assasin that gets assigned to kill all the spandex spastic supersluts, just imagine the pure undiluted joy of Guy kicking Evans in the nuts and turning to a smirking RDJ who quips 'we have a hulk' Guy cuts RDJ head off with a big Ninja sword as hul;k walks in the room, frozen with fear hulk just shits on the floor Guy crosses the room and explains the plot to Memento to Hulk, the big green retard's tiny brain can't comprehend the awesomeness of the movie's story and hulk's head explodes!! Hawkeye....fucking hawkeye jeeze...where do i start with this shmuck...Anyhoo, Hawkeye whips out his bow and arrow, Guy looks at him all 'You fuckin' kiddin' me midget?' then blows Hawkeyes brains all over ScarJos gormless face with that big fuck off machine gun Blane used in Predator!!! Guy smiles coz he don't hit ladiez, he takes a picture of ScarJo on his IPhone with the hot load on her face..'Fuck off Blank Window or i'll post THIS online' Exit ScarJo.... Prick Fury and Agent Colslaw burst in the room..Guy just nukes those muthafukkas with a grenade. Guy wanders outside to see Ming the...i mean Lookee, wookee, whatever the prats name is, standing there all bug eyed mental in his pointy hat. 'Nice stick...Dick.' Guy says...'You wanna see my muthafukkin boomstick sukka!!' BOOM!! Loki's not lookee to goodee with no headee!! Thor crys out 'YOU HATH KILLED MY BROTHER, BY ALL THE GODS!!!' Guy grabs a nail gun and turns the blonde baywatch reject into a pin cushion, loks at the camera and smiles..'Who needs a hammer' At that moment Batman appears and they stand face to face in silence.....Bale takes off the mask and hands it to Guy, you'll be needing this......Batman' Bale says The crowd goes wild and we have our new BATMAN!!! It'd make a Squillioin i tellya!!! Phew.....I all kindsa tired now.....

    Airsoft guns

    by twogunjames

    and they look like the cheap kind too. Yeah, I want to get yanked out of a movie because one of the bad guys is using a $25 cyma brand plastic toy gun.
