Lockout Trailer: Prison! In! Spaaaaace!

Lockout is tragically not called Space Jail, but it is indeed about a prison in space, where somehow the president's daughter gets trapped, and so Guy Pearce has to go save her, because of course. Take that, Newt Gingrich's moon colony! The movie can also now claim the dubious achievement of having one of the dumbest trailer lines in living memory: "It's impenetrable because ... it's not ... on ... Earth." Earthliness is now a measure of penetrability? No one tell that to the gaseous surface of Saturn. Anyway, Pearce stars as Snow, who's "the best there is — but he's a loose cannon." A real line in a real trailer for a real movie, folks.
