Exclusive Stills: Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace in Lockout

There's only one name we trust when it comes to action, and that name is Luc Besson. Over the last decade, the director of Leon: The Professional and The Fifth Element has turned his hand to writing and producing some of the best balls to the wall action movies around, like District B13 and the critically-acclaimed Liam Neeson thriller Taken. On April 20, 2012, he brings you his latest collaboration, Lockout, written and directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, and we've got exclusive stills featuring co-stars Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace. Click through for the high-def versions.

"Starring Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace and set in the near future, Lockout follows a falsely convicted ex- government agent (Pearce), whose one chance at obtaining freedom lies in the dangerous mission of rescuing the President’s daughter (Grace) from rioting convicts at an outer space maximum security prison."

Sure, it sounds a lot like Escape from New York in Space. But you know what sounds totally awesome? Escape from New York in Space
