Everybody’s favourite action star Chris Pratt and America’s sweetheart Jennifer Lawrence in the same movie? Holy mother of box office success! The first trailer for Morten Tyldum’s Passengers has finally hit the internet after an extremely long amount of time. The project is the first time Pratt and Lawrence have appeared on screen together, and considering their past box office successes; one would make a rough estimate that the film has everything it needs to be a massive December hit.
The film’s official synopsis reads: “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.”
You can catch the first trailer below, but I will warn you, the film does hit theatres on December 21, so we still have a rather long time until it hits the big screen.
Passengers stars Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne and Andy Garcia and is directed by Morten Tyldum.
