The last few clips from Passengers have been packed with action-packed and terrifying moments, but the latest sneak peek is a little more fun. Sony Pictures has released another clip from the upcoming sci-fi romance, featuring Jennifer Lawrence’s Aurora and Chris Pratt’s Jim going on a date for the very first time. You can check it out below.
The film was directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) from an original script by Jon Spaihts, whose most recent credits include Marvel’s Doctor Strange and Universal’s upcoming The Mummy reboot starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella. Spaihts wrote Passengers a few years ago, but the project was stuck in development limbo until Sony Pictures picked up the rights to the film towards the end of 2014. Here’s the synopsis:
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 opens in theaters on December 21, 2016. The film also stars Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne, Andy García and Aurora Perrineau. Are you excited?
