Trailer - Passengers
Passengers is a film that seems to be trying to prove that you can get butts in seats simply by casting two of the most popular actors; Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. "Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt sci-fi romance" is really the only information we knew about this film until today. The new trailer that just dropped gives us a lot more than what we previously knew, in fact, it seems to give away huge chunks of the story that I wish they wouldn't have shown me. Watch this trailer with caution, it contains potentially big spoilers.
This movie looks well-made, I'll give it that. I'm just so pissed off that they felt the need to vomit out every little detail of the film in the first trailer. I don't know why studios haven't caught on to the fact that it's a lot more intriguing to tease what you might see rather than show everything. I'm definitely going to check this film out, given the talent involved, but I will be very hesitant to watch any more trailers for the film.
Here's a quick synopsis for the film from Sony Pictures:
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.
Passengers hits theaters December 21, 2016.
