The first trailer for ‘Lockout‘ (also known as ‘MS One: Maximum Security‘) has just been released and as my title suggests, it looks extremely promising and could be one of the biggest action hits of 2012. The film centers around a man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. (Guy Pearce) who is later offered his freedom back if he can rescue the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.

The prison in space contains the world’s most dangerous criminals. When they take over, realizing that their meal ticket is the president’s daughter, they will stop at nothing to ensure they get her. With “Snow” (Pearce) on a mission to save her, she’ll have to trust him to get her home safely or she won’t have a fighting chance.

The film also stars Peter Stormare (Fargo), Lennie James (The Walking Dead), Jacky Ido (Inglourious Basterds), and Vincent Regan (300). The film has an expected release date of April 20, 2012. Check out the first trailer below.
