There seems to now always be this one sci-fi space movie that comes out every year with awards bait written all over it... we had Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian... and now it seems 'Passengers' is filling that role (or is it in contention with 'Arrival'?).
Starring two of Hollywood's most sought after stars, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are two space colonists awoken early in cryogenic sleep on a routine journey to a new space home. 90 years too early. The two eventually fall in love, but when they discover that the ship is malfunctioning, they must try to save themselves, and the 5000 other people on board.
Whilst the two stars will be enough to draw a large audience, the trailer suggests that the film will boast spectacular visuals and some exciting action. I just hope that the romance isn't always this cheesy, and that there is some deeper and more complex plot.
The film will be released this December. Check out the trailer below:
