Pairing Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt together in a film is definitely the right idea, at least judging from this first trailer for their upcoming thriller, Passengers.
Their chemistry seems pretty evident right off the bat. Lawrence and Pratt play two passengers onboard a spaceship transporting them and hundreds of other people to a new life on another planet. Of course, for the long journey, everyone is put into a cryogenic sleep – except for some mysterious reason, only Jim and Aurora are awakened 90 years before they reach their destination.
Wandering around the enormous empty spaceship, Jim and Aurora to figure out what happened and why their sleeping pods malfunction. They also begin to fall for each other, unable to deny their intense attraction. All fun and games end, however, when it looks like the ship is going to be destroyed — and they do find out truth on why they woke up.
Passengers, which opens December 21, also stars Michael Sheen (as an android bartender) and Laurence Fishburne, and is directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game)… watch the trailer!0
