Passengers trailer reveals a romance and robot hijinks
The movie media was aflutter when the first trailer for Passengers dropped earlier this week, and for good reason. The movie, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence as lonely space travelers, previews a love story in space between two of today’s most watchable A-listers. Personally, I’m still on the fence between being on board and rolling my eyes at both the talent and the trailer, but Passengers looks like it could find a strong audience come December. It’s an end-of-the-year romantic sci-fi movie starring Pratt and Lawrence, so it’s bound to put more than a few butts in theater seats. From the trailer, looks like we’re in for some robot flirting, an explosion or two, and some kind of twist plot reveal as hinted at by Pratt’s final line in the trailer, “There’s a reason we woke up early.”
