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. While the president's daughter (Grace) is performing an inspection, a breakout occurs and suddenly the crazies are running the asylum. With limited options, the president turns to a recently convicted, albeit framed, spy (Pearce) who is sent to the space prison to rescue the daughter. It's worth noting that the trailer uses the title MS One: Maximum Security, but it's hard to tell if that's simply the international title or a replacement for Lock-Out. Whatever the title ends up being, look for the movie when it hits theaters on April 20, 2012.
