The film Passengers released today from Sony Pictures which stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Passengers take us onboard the Avalon spaceship that is transporting not only Jim Preston (Pratt) and Aurora Lane (Lawrence), but thousands of other passengers to a colony referred to as Homestead II; the only difference is everyone else including the crew is nestled snug in their hibernation pods. Unfortunately, Jim and Aurora have woken up prematurely, and we aren’t speaking about a few hours, we are talking about 90 years too early. The passengers were scheduled to be roused from their hibernation pods a few months before landing and the crew shortly before. Over the course of the film, Jim and Aurora begin to fall in love with each other as they attempt to disentangle the reason as to why they are the only human life awake. The Avalon ship reminded me of an abandoned cruise ship, with a lot of exploration it might serve up a real good time, at least for a little while. It was quite humorous to witness our cultural expectations and influences on a ship in deep space; Jim finds himself restricted to certain priveledges based on his passenger status. Passengers will touch upon a few moral and ethical questions throughout and this makes it that much more exciting! Quite apparent throughout the film is the breathtaking production design, this really brings life and sets the tone for the entire film.
Directed by Morten Tyldum and Written by Jon Spaihts, Passengers really hits it out of the ballpark so to speak. The chemistry between Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence is fantastic and very real. With a beautiful story and production design, Passengers embraces outer space seamlessly through its stellar-sharp imagery complimented with a perfect flow. Full of adventure, love, comedy and deception Passengers will introduce movie-goer’s Psyche to an exploding & thrilling experience, indeed offering beautiful storytelling.
