I suspect a great many people would be perfectly happy to find themselves stranded in space with nothing to do but make out with Chris Pratt and/or Jennifer Lawrence and trade witticisms with a robot bartender who looks like Michael Sheen. But the characters in Passengers apparently don’t feel that way. In the new sci-fi romance directed by Morten Tyldum, Jim (Pratt) and Aurora (Lawrence) are panicked to realize they’ve come out of hibernation 90 years early en route to another planet.
To be fair, it looks like they’ve got good reason to freak out. It slowly dawns on them that they were woken up for a reason, that they’re in great danger, and that there’s very little they can do about their imminent doom. Now, if it were me, I’d probably just go back to that robot bartender and keep drinking until the bitter end. But there’s a reason no one’s making movies about me. Jim and Aurora are more proactive types, who set out to get to the truth about their situation and prevent the worst from happening. Watch the Passengers trailer below.
