EXCLUSIVE: Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace Talk 'Lockout'

Luc Besson is behind this sci-fi action hybrid about a fast-talking ex-con who takes on a suicide mission to rescue the President's daughter.
Filmmaker Luc Besson is just as well known for finding new directors as he is for his own movies. After discovering rising talents such as Alexandre Aja, Louis Leterrier, and Pierre Morel, the writer-producer has handed the reins over to new filmmakers James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, who make their directorial debut with Lockout, which hits theaters nationwide April 13 and was written and produced by Luc Besson.

Guy Pearce stars as the wise-cracking Snow, who takes on an incredibly dangerous mission to rescue the President of the United States' daughter, Emilie (Maggie Grace), from the convicts aboard space prison MS-One. I had a chance to sit down with both Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace to discuss this sci-fi thriller. Check out what they had to say in our exclusive video interviews.


Lockout was released April 13th, 2012 and stars Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Vincent Regan, Joseph Gilgun, Lennie James, Peter Stormare, Jacky Ido, Tim Plester. The film is directed by James Mather, Stephen St. Leger.

    I wanted to like this movie (I like Guy in most of his stuff). Sad to report, this movie was utter garbage. CGI was SyFy TV level stuff. The editing was horrible. Huge plot holes. Cheap sets - you could see them move when bumped into or hit. The story was a long string of cliche's loosely strung together. Real disappointment. Better luck on your next outing Mr. Pearce.
