Lockout Announced For Blu-Ray In July

Sony will be releasing the latest Luc Besson produced space actioner Lockout on Blu-Ray in July.

Guy Pearce stars in Lockout, the latest Luc Besson produced action flick that consists of a ridiculous plot and some over-the-top acting. Lockout looks and feels like a poor man’s Escape from New York, but the reality is it’s much worse.

Our very own Kristal Cooper pretty much sums up my thoughts in her review:

While Lockout matches Luc Besson’s other film projects in its devotion to being nothing more than a slick, uncomplicated spectacle, the film’s ridiculously botched execution and lazy action sequences make it ultimately fall short of its outrageous concept and otherwise intriguing build-up.

Still, the Blu-Ray comes with a promised unrated cut, which could very well be the saving grace the film needs. Nothing sucks more than a PG-13 action flick, so maybe the secret to success can be found in this newly released cut?

The Blu-Ray/UltraViolet combo pack of Lockout comes with a 1080p video transfer and a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. Check out a list of the bonus features below:
