Maggie Grace as the President's daughter in Lockout (sorry guys, she's not posing like this in the movie)

Did you know there will be a total of 70 sci-fi/fantasy movies that will be released in 2012? Many movie fans have put “Lockout” as one of their top 10 sci-fi films to watch for 2012. So what do the previews say?

For one thing, the trailer looks amazing with spectacular action sequences!

Did you know that the lead actor Guy Pearce will also appear in Ridley Scott’s exciting Alien prequel Prometheus this summer?

Did you also know Lockout is co-written and produced by Luc Besson, one of my favourite action movie directors? Besson has done movies like Taken, Léon: The Professional, The Transporter and Fifth Element, so fans of his work already know what to expect.

Reading the plot alone made me cringe, as the story is ridiculous (then again, what action movie doesn’t have a ridiculous storyline?). In any case, when I heard Luc Besson’s name was involved, this instantly became a movie that I want to see!

Take a look at the trailer below.
