The first five minutes of ‘Lockout’

by 7 years ago

You know what? Forget trailers. Just show us the first five minutes of the movie and let it ride. Lockout, starring Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace, opens this Friday. The directors are a pair of Irish no-names so it’s not surprising that the studio is a little uncertain on how to market it. But it’s released by FilmDistrict, one of the best distributors in the business right now (they brought us Drive), which automatically earns us cool points. Also cool is their realization that trailers basically suck, so instead they just YouTubed the first five minutes of the movie. Good move, because now we know it’s a funny, violent action movie that moves at a breakneck pace.
