Sony Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for the sci-fi drama Passengers. Written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) and directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), the film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt and takes place on a luxury spaceship bound for a human colony that’s 120 years away. Given the length of the journey, the 5,000 passengers are put into hyper-sleep, but when two of the passengers are mysteriously awakened 90 years too early, they strike up a relationship and quickly become the ship’s only hope of recovering from a serious malfunction.
Considering we have had a very good run with space-set dramas over last few years (think Gravity, Interstellar, The Martian), we are hopeful that ‘Passengers’ would also be great.
