New poster released for Chris Pratt & Jennifer Lawrence film Passengers

The fact that this movie exists should be cause for celebration. With more and more big-budget movies being based solely on IPs (no matter how obscure or ridiculous *cough* MAX STEEL *cough*), it's nice when there's not only an original idea, but one that was based on a spec script. I mean, PASSENGERS is one of the few big films in recent memory that wasn't at some point a comic-book, novel, or f*cking toy.

Not saying being based on IPs is necessarily bad (many of my favorite movies of the last few years were comic-book movies), just that the saturation of them is the problem. So it's nice to have a change of pace.

PASSENGERS stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt as...does it really matter? You're going to see it anyway. But alright, the film is set in the future where a colony of people are travelling to a distant planet and two of them (Lawrence and Pratt, natch) wake up sixty years early when there's a malfunction in their sleep chambers. A romance ensues (as per Hollywood rules involving two hot people alone together. It's just math).

Anyway, here's the poster:

Not much to go on (and barely registers as sci-fi), but it's probably doing its job. Not the biggest fan of "floating head" poster designs (of which this is a variant) but this will definitely put butts in the seats. So, bravo?

PASSENGERS, directed by Morten Tyldum (IMITATION GAME) will be released in theaters December 21st, 2016.

Extra Tidbit: Jennifer Lawrence said in an interview that she got herself wasted before doing a sex scene with Chris Pratt.

Beautiful poster

I especially love the subtle use of the "S.O.S." morse code underneath the title.

There had better be aliens, 'splosions and a naked-as-possible Lawrence.

Not sure how much the script has changed from it's Black List days, but it is a romantic dramady set in space.

Excited as hell for this. Hope it's more of a personal story than a larger grand scale type of film. And I'm curious to see how good Pratt, and Lawrence's chemistry is with one another.

Hopefully we get a trailer soon.

Well, Lawrence and Pratt are 2 of the most popular actors working now, so I guess that's all you need to sell this movie. Is this supposed to be a big movie though? I assumed it would be one of those smaller scale sci-fi films (like Moon or Solaris) instead of something like Interstellar or Gravity. A trailer would probably tell us more, and I'm surprised one hasn't been released yet.
