From prancing drag Queen Felicia to a swearing, smart-mouthed, government agent Guy Pearce has come a long way.
A five minute trailer for his latest movie, Lockout, was released over the weekend.
In it Pearce’s character Snow is repeatedly punched by a thug for his smart-mouthed, irreverent comments.
The clip for the sci-fi action adventure includes a fight scene in a hotel bathroom, a death, a futuristic helicopter shooting through the building and a chase over rooftops.
In the movie, which is set to hit Australian screens in July, Pearce plays a falsely convicted ex-government agent whose only chance at freedom is to rescue the President’s daughter from rioting prisoners at an outer space maximum security prison.
The Melbourne actor has another two movies set to come out this year and is filming a third.
