This may well be everything I want in life: Scott Adkins and space and Scott Adkins kicking the crap out of people in space. That’s right, there’s now a trailer for Incoming, the long-awaited—by me anyway—Scott Adkins space prison movie. And it’s everything I hoped for. There’s also a release date!
Thanks to the good people at Screen Anarchy, where this Incoming trailer debuted, the world is now a much better place. This looks like pure, cheap, ‘80s genre throwback cheese, with Adkins punching and kicking his way through generic future terrorist goons and a shoddily constructed space station set. And I’m tickled pink about all of this. My only hope is that, at some point, we get to see him kick a dude in zero gravity. That’s a must-have for this movie.
We first heard whispers of Incoming a little over a year ago. Considering Scott Adkins, one of the world’s premiere DTV ass-kickers, always has seemingly dozens of projects in the works, I wasn’t sure this one would pan out. Especially because it’s a sci-fi prison movie in space, which tend to have larger budgets than his usual far. But I’m beyond ecstatic it exists.
Here’s a synopsis for Incoming, which admittedly still sounds like Lockout, though Lockout with Scott Adkins:
The International Space Station is now a prison—the ultimate black site. No one's getting out. And no one knows it's there. But when the imprisoned terrorists take over the Station and turn it into a missile aimed at Moscow, only a shuttle pilot and a rookie doctor can stop them. Their task is complicated by a rogue CIA agent (Scott Adkins) who has his own plans for the station and the terrorists within.
Incoming also stars Alaa Safi (who appeared with Adkins in Doctor Strange), Aaron McCusker (Dexter), Michelle Lehane (Kill Ratio), Arkie Reece (The Bourne Ultimatum), Dominic Power (Unforgotten), and Milorad Kapor (who actually appeared in Lockout). Longtime second unit AD Eric Zaragoza makes his feature directorial debut.
Incoming opens in limited theaters on May 4, which is crazy soon. I also assume it will hit VOD either at the same time or shortly thereafter.
