Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence may be two of the biggest names in Hollywood right now, so when Passengers (a science fiction film starring the pair) was announced, we were pretty excited. Now we’ve gotten the first trailer for the film… and we’re more excited? Actually, we’re the same level of excited as before — but it was kind of a high level to start with.
There’s a cap on this sort of thing.
The film is about a pair of people who had boarded a long term space flight to a new world, where they were supposed to spend the journey in stasis. The two are woken up early for unknown reasons though, and are faced with spending the remaining ninety years alone with each other.
Oh, and then some other stuff goes wrong too.
It looks really interesting, and it’s nice to see something that’s both serious science fiction and a strong character piece. Hopefully it lives up to expectations (and survives getting released around the same time as a Star Wars film).
Passengers comes out December 21st.
