It’s the movie you’ll see whether you want to or not: Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt star as two lonely but exceptionally marketable space travelers who fall in love in the first trailer for Passengers. Here’s the trailor (& pictures at the end of this article)!
These passengers are among many others who have signed up for a 120-year stint in hibernation as they voyage to a new planet for a new start in life. Something goes wrong, though, and the two most bankable movie stars on board wake up early, are irresistibly attracted to each other, save the ship from … something … and uncover a terrible secret.
The trailer doesn’t hold much back, because—and we really can’t emphasize this enough—the plot is not the reason you’re going to see this movie. Part rom-com, part sci-fi adventure, the film looks like a cross between Guardians of the Galaxy, Silver Linings Playbook, and every sci-fi movie or television show ever that features cryogenic sleep. Passengers also stars Laurence Fishburne, Andy Garcia, and Michael Sheen as a robot bartender, because hey, Sheen’s gotta pay the bills too.
Passengers hits theaters Dec. 21.
