It was only a matter of time until these crazy kids got together.
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are the two hottest movie stars on the planet at the moment, and they’re finally going to appear on screen together in Passengers.
Directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), the long-awaited Passengers stars Lawrence and Pratt as two, well, passengers aboard a space ship transporting them to a new life on another planet. But the trip takes a deadly turn when their hibernation pods mysteriously wake them up, 90 years before they reach their destination.
Because this is a movie and Lawrence and Pratt are professionally attractive people, they instantly fall for each other… but their burgeoning relationship is threatened by the imminent collapse of their ship and the discovery of the truth behind why they woke up.
The trailer looks great, but it’s a bit surprising (and a possible red flag) that we’re only starting to see promotion now for a potential blockbuster that comes out in a few short months.
Still, that’s preferable to the slow, seemingly never-ending build-up to most sci-fi and superhero films that we usually get these days.
Passengers releases in Australian cinemas on January 1, 2017.
