First Trailer for Michael Apted’s Action Thriller ‘Unlocked’

Michael Apted's Action Thriller

Lionsgate UK has debuted the teaser trailer for the upcoming action thriller Unlocked, from veteran English filmmaker Michael Apted. The film boasts one hell of a star-studded cast including Noomi Rapace, Orlando Bloom, Michael Douglas, Toni Collette, Akshay Kumar, and John Malkovich.

Rapace stars as a CIA agent who finds her mission compromised. She’s forced to team up with an MI5 agent (Bloom) to track down the terrorist infiltration and prevent a major attack.

Is it a decent script that drew these big names? Or it’s actually this year’s Bourne wannabe with female lead? I dunno. I’m just a bit…confused. The screenplay is penned by Peter O’Brien.

Unlocked has yet to gain U.S. distribution but opens in the U.K. on May 5th. Watch the first official trailer below.

Knowing the CIA has been compromised, Alice must turn to the few she can trust as she searches for those responsible and tries to prevent a deadly biological attack on the city.
