‘Passengers’: Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt Are Pretty Puzzled in New TV Spot!!! Check It Out!!


Sony Pictures has unveiled a new TV spot for the original sci-fi film Passengers that shows off some new footage from the highly promising thriller. “Original sci-fi” isn’t a word that gets tossed around too often anymore, so that’s reason enough to care about Passengers. Throw in the fact that it’s a two-hander starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, plus it looks gorgeous, and you’ve got yourself a holiday treat.

Scripted by Jon Spaihts and directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), the story takes place aboard a spaceship that’s in the midst of a 90-year journey to bring a boatload of passengers to their new lives on a distant planet. Lawrence and Pratt play two passengers who are mysteriously awoken too early, and who start to fall for one another before the ship finds itself in grave peril.

The cinematography by Rodrigo Prieto is off the charts in this thing, and this new TV spot only furthers my excitement not just for the visuals, but for the mystery behind why Pratt and Lawrence’s characters wake up. Here’s hoping this is an original sci-fi film that makes a mark on audiences, leaving them with a desire for more sci-fi stories that aren’t simply shameless reboots/rehashes of familiar IP.

Watch the new Passengers TV spot below. The film also stars Michael SheenAndy Garcia, and Laurence FishburnePassengers opens in theaters on December 21st.

 Here’s the official synopsis for Passengers:

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are two passengers onboard a spaceship transporting them to a new life on another planet. The trip takes a deadly turn when their hibernation pods mysteriously wake them 90 years before they reach their destination. As Jim and Aurora try to unravel the mystery behind the malfunction, they begin to fall for each other, unable to deny their intense attraction… only to be threatened by the imminent collapse of the ship and the discovery of the truth behind why they woke up.
