March and April have quickly become more and more populated. It seems like all the rejected summer blockbusters flock to these two months, hoping the lack of competition will garner them box office glory. Well it doesn't always work, you can't deny that there is money to be made during these two months. And, evident from today's Prelude to 2012, studios want as much money as they can squeeze from these two months. Hit the jump for full details on over 25 films hoping to make an impact in the limbo between Summer and the beginning of the year. Who knows...you may just find something you'll like.
March has always been a busy time for film. In fact, I would say that the year doesn't truly kick off Until this month. Yeah, there's a couple notable releases in January and February (as shown here), but March is when the first blockbusters »

Almost two weeks ago, we brought you the first trailer for director Luc Besson‘s (Taken) Sci-Fi/Drama entitled, Lock-Out, starring Maggie Grace (Faster) and Guy Pearce (Animal Kingdom). Now, FilmDistrict has released a new International trailer for the sci-fi thriller.
Apparently the studio has decided to change the name of the film to Ms One: Maximum Security, or it’s being retitled for different film markets and will still be called Lock-Out here in the U.S., we’re not entirely sure. Anyway, check out the trailer below!
Trailer: Ms One: Maximum Security

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.

Last week, we got our first look at Lock-Out, a new sci-fi movie produced by Luc Besson (The Transporter, Columbiana), in the form of an international teaser trailer that contained virtually no plot and only a smidgen of special effects, but a whole lot of British actor Guy Pearce looking tough, delivering quippy dialogue, and getting his face bashed in.
Now, a French theatrical trailer (in English) for the movie has been released that offers a brief explanation of the plot — the president's daughter (Maggie Grace) is trapped aboard an orbiting prison when a riot breaks out and only a wrongly convicted spy (Pearce) is desperate enough and crazy enough to attempt a rescue mission — more sci-fi goodness (cryogenic prison cells, spaceships, etc.); and much more of what was great about the teaser trailer: Pearce acting tough and delivering cheeky dialogue like, "Here's an apple and a gun. Don't talk to strangers; shoot them. »

If you’re looking for something to make your Thursday a little brighter, how about some trailers? Everyone loves trailers, right? We’ve got three new clips that should keep you entertained for at least six minutes. First up, we bring you the second trailer for the upcoming Luc Besson sci-fi action flick Lock-Out. Guy Pearce stars as a criminal hired to break into a maximum security prison in outer space in order to save the President’s daughter. If you’re thinking this is a total rip-off of Escape From New York, you’re right – but it’s Luc Besson, who gave us films like The Professional and La Femme Nikita, so we don’t care if it’s a rip-off or not. The trailer is a lot of fun and we’re totally buying Pearce as...

Lock-Out is the first of the two films co-written and produced by Luc Besson that we can look forward to next year – the other being the sequel to the immense Taken – which will mark the feature directorial debut of its other two co-writers, James Mather and Stephen St. Leger.
The film is led by Guy Pearce, who’s set to have a brilliant year next year starring in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and John Hillcoat’s Wettest County opposite Tom Hardy and Shia Labeouf, and will also star Peter Stormare, along with reuniting Besson with his Taken star, Maggie Grace.
“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.”
We’ve now got a great new trailer to share with you, courtesy of the French film site, »

Lockout Trailer, Ms One: Maximum Security Trailer. James Mather, Stephen St. Leger‘s Lock-Out / Ms One: Maximum Security (2012) movie trailer stars Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Peter Stormare, Lennie James, and Vincent Regan. Lock-Out‘s plot synopsis: “A man (Pearce) wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the Us is offered freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace) from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.”
We previously posted the Lock-Out (2012) International Movie Trailer.
I am going to see this film just for the jokes. This action film looks funny. Many people are saying Guy Pearce’s character is a replica of S.D. Plissken from Escape to New York. Snake was not a smartass like the character in this film is, he was insolent.
A new trailer has surfaced on Allocine for the Luc Besson produced movie Lock-Out featuring some recogniable faces including Guy Pearce (L.A. Confidential, The Kings Speech) and Peter Stomare (The Big Lebowski, Armageddon) and perhaps taking the award for ‘The Most Outrageous & Ludicrous Movie To Not Star Nicolas Cage Award of 2012′.
Ridiculously titled M.S. One: Maximum Security outside of the U.S. (seriously), the futuristic sci-fi trailer comes across like “Escape From New York set in space”, with Guy Pearce as a wrongfully arrested convict sent to the titular space station/prison to rescue the American President’s daughter when a mass breakout occurs. Lost’s Maggie Grace plays the kidnapped daughter and for whatever reason Luc Besson likes to make movies where she is kidnapped (see Taken, also produced by Luc Besson’s Europacorp) and she is getting herself typecast in the worst possible way.

A Lock-Out trailer has been released. Luc Besson's science fiction action movie stars Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace. Grace is the daughter of the president, who finds herself trapped on a supposedly invulnerable orbital prison when the inmates take over. Pearce is the mouthy convict offered a pardon if he can rescue her. The trailer for Lock-Out is for the French version of the film, which is titled (more) »

Back in August 2010, when word broke of Maggie Grace jumping aboard Luc Besson’s new high concept thriller Lock-Out (or Ms One: Maximum Security as it is in France), we thought the set up sounded like a blend of Escape From New York and Fortress. From the looks of this trailer, we were bang on, with just a dash of Die Hard added in for good measure. Check it out below, but beware of some Nsfw language.Grace plays the president’s daughter, who gets stranded when a supposedly invulnerable maximum-security prison floating in space is suddenly taken over by its psycho inmates. So who could rescue her? Well, since Liam Neeson clearly wasn’t available, Guy Pearce is called in to do the job. He’s a snark-fuelled type who has been falsely accused of espionage against the Us. Promised a pardon in return for his actions, he’s »
After spending the last five years directing a trilogy of animated films based on the Arthur et les Minimoys books and a serious political drama with The Lady, French director Luc Besson is finally returning to the genre that we've all been hoping for: science-fiction. Okay, so he's not directing this one himself, but it's still hard not to be at least a little bit excited by the prospect. The last time he worked with this kind of material himself was in 1997 with The Fifth Element, a movie that a lot of people still seem to love. This time he has co-written a screenplay about a convict who "is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president's daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates." Yes, the plot synopsis sounds a little bit like John Carpenter's long-rumoured Escape from New York sequel, Escape from Earth, »
This is either gonna be terrible, or awesomely terrible (and we're really hoping for the latter), but no matter how you slice it, the Luc Besson-produced "Lock-Out" (or as it seems to be called overseas "Ms One: Maximum Security") looks plain ridiculous. But luckily, Guy Pearce is there to help chew the scenery. Penned by Besson and co-directors James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, the film stars Pearce as a wrongly accused convict who must clear his name by undergoing a suicide mission to rescue the President's daughter (Maggie Grace). Oh, she just happens to be trapped in a futuristic space prison that is currently in the midst of a riot. This thing looks totally fucking bonkers in the best way possible, with Pearce seemingly trying to take the crown from Bruce Willis for action movie one-liners. And each one is eye-rolling/genius gold. It's kind of great to »
Two weeks back we brought you the first trailer for Lock-Out, a new sci-fi thriller starring Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace and Peter Stormare. In my write-up I noted that the plot description of the film made it sound like John Carpenter's Escape From New York, only set in space instead of Manhattan. The trailer, however, which largely featured Pearce getting interrogated and punched a lot, didn't really show off much of the story. Now a new French trailer for the movie has arrived online and I'm changing my stance: this not only looks seems a remake of Escape From New York, it basically is one. Check out the trailer below. Written by Luc Besson, James Mather, and Stephen St. Leger and directed by Mather and St. Leger, Lock-Out is set in 2079 when a prison in space is used to house some of the most dangerous criminals in the world.

We recently got a look at the first trailer for the sci-fi action thriller Lock-Out by way of an international teaser. It revealed very little in the way of plot, but Guy Pearce looked promising in the starring role. Now a new trailer has popped up, and it’s gets fairly deep into the story of the flick. Pearce plays a man who is tasked with going into a maximum security prison in space in order to rescue the Us President’s daughter. Why does she need rescuing? Well it seems the space prison is in the midst of a little space prison break by the space prisoners. The visuals look really cool, and I’m really liking Pearce’s smart-ass character. The tag of the trailer refers to the film as Ms One: Maximum Security so either that’s the international title, or the new overall title (I’m »

I’m definitely in sci-fi mood these days, so I’m quite happy that we finally have an international trailer for the upcoming Ms One: Maximum Security movie, previously titled Lock-Out. In case you’re not so familiar with this title, I will just tell you that this project has it all – from conspiracy, espionage and top [...]
Once we nail down a title and get our punctuation in order, I’ll have an less-stressful time looking forward to this upcoming space action flick. Formerly Lock-Out (or Lockout, or Lock-out) the Luc Besson-produced film is now either called Escape From M.S. One, Ms One: Security Maximum, M.S. One: Maximum Security, Escape From Ms One, Ms One: Maximum Security or Ms One: Security Maximum. Phew. Well, whatever it ends up being it at least looks like a bit of cheesy fun.
Guy Pearce plays a convict that is sent to a space prison to extract the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace). We had an initial trailer for the James Mather and Stephen St. Leger-directed sci-fi action film, but the latest shows off even more. We have freeway chases, a shotgun-wielding Pearce, space fights and more. It sounds like exactly what I’d want from a film like this. »

Luc Besson produced his own remake of Escape From New York without even telling us! The film Lockout, (also Lock-Out, and now Ms One: Maximum Security, at least in France) has been called 'Taken in space' because it is from Luc Besson's company and has Maggie Grace once again playing a daughter in peril. This time she's the daughter of the Us President, and she's stuck on a maximum-security prison satellite after all the prisoners are freed. Guy Pearce is the guy recruited to save her, and he's certainly doing a pretty damn good riff on Snake Plissken. Check out a new French trailer below. The first trailer , which was mostly Guy Pearce getting punched in the face quite a few times, looked like fun. This trailer makes the movie look like all-out silliness. But because Pearce is in full-on smartass action mode, like he is channeling the spirit »

"Yea, I should've stayed in college." As awesome as this sci-fi movie looks, it's having an identity crisis. It was originally titled Lock-Out, or also Lockout (without a dash), but has now been retitled to Ms One: Maximum Security in Europe, and Escape From M.S. One in the Us (I wonder if that had anything to do with all the comparisons to Escape from New York?). Lock-Out stars Guy Pearce as a felon hired to go to a Maximum Security space station prison to rescue a girl, Maggie Grace. Thanks to Allocine we've got a new trailer in HD quality. It looks like some hard sci-fi, but still awesome, I'm excited to see this despite its title. Watch the latest int. trailer for James Mather & Stephen St. Leger's Escape From M.S. One, via Allocine: A man (Pearce) wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the Us »

The Luc Besson-co-written/produced sci-fi actioner “Lock-Out” has gotten itself a new, full-length trailer that dives into the film’s plot, throws more action on the screen, more Maggie Grace, and more Guy Pearce cracking wise. The more I see of the film, the more I think Pearce might be playing one of those cool characters that might end up fronting a franchise. He’s kinda like Snake Plissken, but with a more wicked sense of humor. The film may also have been re-titled “Ms One – Maximum Security”, but maybe that’s just the French title. IMDb.com still has it listed as “Lock-Out”, which I think is a better title anyway. Generic, yes, but “Ms One – Maximum Security” sounds like a bad anti-virus software.
