Okay elevator pitch time — the inmates at a futuristic maximum-security prison have escaped and taken over the facility. That would be bad enough on its own, but the President’s Daughter was visiting the prison when the takeover occurred and now she’s trapped! Only a former felon played by Guy Pearce can save her! Also, this prison happens to be in SPACE! Ohhhhhh sh-t!
Well I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of intrigued. The movie’s going to be called Escape from M.S. One in North America, and you can check out a trailer after the jump (watch out, there’s a couple naughty words in it)…
So yeah, this is a Luc Besson produced movie, so it’s a given it will be fairly ridiculous. The question is, will it be good The Fifth Element or Leon style ridiculous or bad Taxi style ridiculous? I’m leaning towards good ridiculous, although some of those Guy Pearce one-liners are awfully cheesy. Looks like something worth catching at the cheap three-dollar theatre at the very least.
