Watch Guy Pearce get punched a LOT in 1st 5 minutes of Lockout

In a late push to build some buzz for the futuristic prison flick Lockout, the studio has released the first five minutes online—and judging by the footage, it actually looks pretty good.

The clip is a cold open, with Guy Pearce's criminal being interrogated—and punched, a lot—as he recalls a hotel room fight in New York. The action looks good, and Pearce's ex-con seems loaded with witty one-liners.

Set in 2079, the story follows a wrongly convicted man (Pearce) tasked with breaking into an outer-space prison that has been taken over by inmates to rescue the president's daughter.

It looks like a real B-movie sci-fi romp. Check out the clip below, and let us know if it piques your interest.

Lockout opens on April 13.
