New Trailer and Movie Poster for Chris Pratt & Jennifer Lawrence’s Passengers
Over the past couple of years, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt have quickly become two of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood. Chris Pratt has come so far since his television days playing the silly yet lovable Andy Dwyer on Parks and Recreation. In about three years time, Pratt has become one of the biggest stars in the world thanks to franchises such as Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World. Jennifer Lawrence launched her career in the independent feature film Winter’s Bone. Less than a year later, Lawrence became a household name as well as Oscar winner thanks to David O. Russell. Lawrence is probably best known for playing the role of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games Franchise.
In the upcoming film Passengers, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are two passengers on a space ship that have given up their life on planet earth to go on a mission. The plot thickens when Jim and Aurora wake up 90 years earlier than expected due to a system malfunction. The trailer is intriguing because it doesn’t give too much away. The trailer already showcases that Pratt and Lawerence will have great on-screen chemistry. It looks like the film will be a nice combination of science fiction visuals while remaining focused on the two leads and building their relationship.
After seeing Arrival at Toronto International Film Festival, I can only hope this film is similar in tone. Science Fiction films with a little story, but amazing special effects don’t seem to impress anymore. It seems like audiences want a great story to accompany the visuals. I do believe that this is when the Sci-fi genre really shines. The Passengers trailer makes me believe that it could be one of those films. Check out the trailer for yourself below and let us know in the comments below what you think.
Passengers will be released by Sony Pictures on December 21, 2016. The film is directed by Morten Tyldum who previously directed The Imitation Game.
