Sony Pictures earlier today release the first look images of their upcoming science fiction drama Passengers starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence! The film follows Chris Pratt's character as he suddenly wakes up from hypersleep on a luxury spaceship traveling through space with 5,000 other passengers 90 years too early! Sounds awesome right? I you had 90 years to kill? What would you do? Wake up Jennifer Lawrence? That's what he does and so goes the film's story this Christmas!
Check out the two new images below and read what the director Imitation Game had to say! Also if you'd like please sound off in the comments section with your thoughts and as always thanks for stopping by EastCoastMovieGuys!
Director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) had this to say about the upcoming film being epic in scope but also quite intimate:
"It’s one of those stories that really grabs you and you fall in love with it. It’s very smart and funny and clever and such a page turner I couldn’t put it down. Every 10 pages, something new happens! At the same time it’s a very intimate movie while taking place on this epic scale. For me, it’s a story about what’s important to live a full life. What are the things we need as humans? It’s not afraid to entertain but at the same time it asks big questions about what does it mean to really feel happy. Every generation has its love story. I feel like this is it. I had to do it."
Here’s the official synopsis for Passengers:
"On a routine journey through space to a new home, two passengers, sleeping in suspended animation, are awakened 90 years too early when their ship malfunctions. As Jim (Chris Pratt) and Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) face living the rest of their lives on board, with every luxury they could ever ask for, they begin to fall for each other, unable to deny their intense attraction… until they discover the ship is in grave danger. With the lives of 5000 sleeping passengers at stake, only Jim and Aurora can save them all."
Passengers is set to hit theaters on December 21st.
