Must Watch: Anne Hathaway's Passengers Trailer
I bet you didn't know Anne Hathaway was in a horror movie called Passengers? This horror flick is about a grief counselor assigned to work with a group of plane crash survivors who starts to uncover a horrific mystery when the survivors start to disappear. If I had to find a horror film to be very interested in, this is definitely it. The trailer hooked me in - it's like a viral marketing campaign with a mysterious conclusion that I'm dying to figure out. I don't want to know what it is before I see it (so please don't say), but I think this definitely looks good. It may not be the next great horror classic and it may not turn out to be a huge box office hit, but at least it looks unique and interesting and isn't a remake or an adaptation.
Thanks to our friends at Reelz Channel for debuting this trailer. I've got to admit that it really came out of nowhere. I had heard the title, but I didn't know Anne Hathaway was in a horror flick. Thoughts?
Watch the first trailer for Passengers:
Passengers is directed by Colombian filmmaker Rodrigo García, of Nine Lives and "In Treatment" previously. The script was written by Ronnie Christensen, of a few various made-for-TV films previously. Sony is releasing Passengers in limited theaters starting on October 24th this fall. The poster is featured below.

The narration makes it feel like a lame movie, but I have too much faith in Patrick Wilson. I really want to see this, just for him. And that guy from The Mist!
Alyx on Aug 30, 2008
did ANOTHER trailer give away too much of a plot?
drew on Aug 30, 2008
Is the movie about the guy or the girl?
Daniel on Aug 30, 2008
seems interesting but I hope it doesnt have a stupid ending like war of the worlds or something

isn't a remake or an adaptation??? Look at this: LOST + HEROES= PASSENGERS
Baltazar Markus on Aug 30, 2008
god, baltazar, exactly what I tought. Like EXACTLY. The narration does make it seem crappy. And I would'nt call that horror, its definitly a sci-fi suspense flick. And that f---ing trailer just gave away half the movie, I'm sure.
Ariel on Aug 30, 2008
lets face it, that trailer sucked
Keith on Aug 30, 2008
they should've just called it final destination: the lost tapes. who gives a damn about some horror movie getting a limited release on the same day as saw?
LeeMan on Aug 30, 2008
agree with #5
mocacinno on Aug 30, 2008
that just looked bad. I am not intrigued at all so far
Allen Johansen on Aug 30, 2008
Hmmm...I'd only see that film if there was nothing else to watch.
Sean Kelly on Aug 30, 2008
ya...that was about as bad as Monkey Bone....anyone remember that movie? that's how bad.

@Keagan Who are you to criticize anybody? No one is forcing you to read his reviews. If you don't like this site don't come here. Let's see you make something better. Otherwise, shut the hell up.
Joshua on Aug 30, 2008
hmm looks crappy but nevertheless i'll watch it.
Phizik on Aug 30, 2008
Sixth Sense did it!
Denny Kolburn on Aug 31, 2008
seems like a lifetime movie with a $30mil budget. patrick wilson looks awful in this.
bryan on Aug 31, 2008
@21 yeah, seems like a ghost movie or something. boring.
Matt Suhu on Aug 31, 2008
I think the story goes a little something like this: MAN: A plane crashed, we need a hot and young psychiatrist to check out the survivors. ANNE: *flips hair around* Oh okay. PATRICK: I'm a handsome man who's conflicted. Sleep with me. ANNE: *Maybeline-esque pose* Okay.
LW on Aug 31, 2008
Looks ok, probably on the same level as those other Screen Gem flicks.
Ryan on Aug 31, 2008
i zoned out before i even finished it
Richard on Aug 31, 2008
I don't think Anne Hatheway being beautiful can save this one. The acting looks very uninspired and forced. I also, have this feeling it will end just like "The Forgotten"
L on Aug 31, 2008
On the trailer: the narrators voice and what he is saying is so corny I had to switch of the sound. On the film: good actors bound by a stupid plot. Just as it always is in todays american "horror" flicks. On Anne Hethaway: cant take anything seriously with her as a lead unless it is not a chick flick. On the film poster: I can almost point out every single photoshop work they did on her face.
Shige on Aug 31, 2008
#26: agree, the narrators voice was very corny. agree with your second point Thrid point agree with, and finally your fourth point i very much agree with. 😀 Yea, that poster is very ugly and that itself will turn others down from watching it. Plus i've grown our of Anne Hatheways beauty...shes just an "ok" actress... and omg the trailer was just displeasing to watch.

This will only be more hokey if they use the Iggy Pop song of the same name for the opening credits. It looks like M. Night Shyamalan wiped his ass and this was the smear left on the toilet paper...
El Conquistador on Aug 31, 2008
Really, the poster doesn't even LOOK like Anne. Also, why are they putting this in LIMITED RELEASE? By the looks of this it doesn't seem like an Oscar flick or they are just burying this flop.

#1 said it best. I ditto his comment.
Icarus on Aug 31, 2008
I'm making the prediction now: She was the only survivor of that plane crash...

Baltazar Markus: "isn't a remake or an adaptation??? Look at this: LOST + HEROES= PASSENGERS" I can save you a step. Ever hear of the series "The 4400"?
jason_md2020 on Sep 1, 2008
I see Dead people .................................much *SPOILER* WARNING* <-----As if the trailer didn't give it up She is Dead and communicating with the real world or the other way around LOL #1 and #5
insanartist on Sep 1, 2008
the trailer is ok, but that's the worst poster i've ever seen in my life.
Not You on Sep 1, 2008
Hmmm.....How did Liv Tyler get on that poster??
Blue Silver on Sep 1, 2008
#38 I was going to ask the same question...but with Alicia Silverstone.
wetworks on Sep 2, 2008
I agree with #2 and #3. And I didn't watch the trailer because I had a sneaking suspicion that what #5 said would happen here. And the I.R.S. had the nerve to say I wasn't good at math. FOOLS!
kevjohn on Sep 2, 2008
Does Andre Braugher play the same character in every movie?
You on Sep 2, 2008
Lemme guess... they see dead people?
Boogy Man on Sep 5, 2008
very typical poster
IT girl on Jan 23, 2009
#36 I AGREE IT'S ALWAYS A STORY LIKE THAT.. NOTHING UNUSUAL.. HOW DID THIS MOVIE BECOME THE "TALK OF THE TOWN"? I REALLY HATE THE POSTER..
