“There is a reason they woke up”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “The spaceship, Starship Avalon, is on its 120-year voyage to a distant colony planet known as ‘Homestead II’ and transporting 5,259 people to a new life this planet. Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are two passengers onboard. 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.
Set in the future, ‘Passengers’ centers on Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), a mechanic, who becomes the first traveler to experience pod hibernation failure, awakening from cryogenic sleep. He is stranded in the world of an interstellar spaceship with only robots and androids for companionship, but every luxury they could ever ask for. Faced with the prospect of growing old and dying alone, a year into his journey, he decides to wake up a fellow passenger, a beautiful journalist named Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence). They fall in love but must soon deal not only with the revelation of Jim’s misjudged act of waking her but a major malfunction of the ship itself.”
