After much speculation and recent released shots of two of Hollywood’s most likable stars, we were finally given our first real look at Passengers, the highly anticipated sci-fi adventure/love story co-starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.
A spacecraft traveling to a distant colony planet and transporting thousands of people has a malfunction in its sleep chambers. As a result, two passengers, Aurora Lane (Lawrence) and James Preston (Pratt) are awakened 90 years earlier. The two soon discover that their early awakening is not the only problem affecting the huge spaceship.
I heard rumors about this movie and when I head that it was being filmed, I was instantly excited because some of the first movies I watched were about space travel. Then finding out two of the hottest stars in cinema today are in the lead roles and you have me sold! When I first saw this trailer, I honestly thought it looked like Titanic…in space. But I could be wrong and this movie could blow my mind.
Seeing Martin Sheen as a bartending robot was hilarious and I’m sure we’re in for another solid performance from him. A few more shots of the trailer show other co-stars such as Andy Garcia and Laurence Fishburne. The shot we have of the spaceship named Avalon looks fantastic. For a teaser trailer, I think Passengers already has a solid following to watch this intergalactic love story play out and live up to its tagline: Every Moment Counts.
Passengers flies into theaters this Christmas.
