Passengers TV Spot

"We woke up 90 years too soon…" Sony Pictures has debuted a new 30-second TV spot for the sci-fi movie Passengers, from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts, directed by Morten Tyldum. We featured the first trailer for this movie a few months ago, and I'm still very excited for it. The story is set far in the future entirely on a passenger ship carrying thousands of people to a colony on the other side of the galaxy. Chris Pratt stars as a mechanic whose sleep pod malfunctions, leaving him awake and alone and unable to last the 90 years left on the ship's journey. This also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Sheen as a robot bartender, and Laurence Fishburne. There isn't that much new footage, but this is one of my most anticipated left to see in 2016 and I'm glad it looks so damn good. I've also included an extra poster from Thailand below. Enjoy.

Here's the new TV spot (+ Thai poster) for Morten Tyldum's Passengers, direct from YouTube:

You can still see the first two trailers for Passengers here, for a better look at this sci-fi movie.

"We boarded the Avalon with a destination… 120 years hibernation means we'll wake up in a new century, on a new planet. A year ago, everything changed…" "Something went wrong with the hibernation pods."

A spacecraft traveling to a distant colony planet and transporting thousands of people has a malfunction in its sleep chambers. As a result, two passengers are awakened 60 years early. Passengers is directed by Oscar nominated Norwegian filmmaker Morten Tyldum, of the films Buddy, Fallen Angels, Headhunters and The Imitation Game previously. The screenplay is written by acclaimed sci-fi screenwriter Jon Spaihts, credited for the films The Darkest Hour, Prometheus and the upcoming The Mummy reboot. This project has been in the works for many years, for a longtime with Keanu Reeves attached to star. Sony will release Passengers in theaters everywhere starting December 21st later this year. Are you excited to see this now?

I am hoping it is not as obvious as the trailer is making it seem.

I am hoping it is.

Pratt alone would sell it. They should've skipped that greedy blonde Lawrence, find a better actress and use the 30mil to develop a better script.

The headline to this article threw me for a second as to it being credited as Jon Spaihts' sci-fi "Passengers" simply bc I know that this is directed by Morton Tyldum. I am not sure why Spaihts would get such a prominent headline credit when he's only the screenwriter - and judging by his previous work....is not a very good one at that (with the slight exception of Doctor Strange).

Ay I'll take this one... It's because this IS Jon Spaihts' script, he wrote it many years ago, it's his "baby", and he has been trying to get it made for a long time. It was finally made and he, remarkably, still has sole screenwriting credit on it. So it is very much his movie. I wanted to switch up the headline for once. Just for the TV spot. Morten Tyldum isn't exactly that well recognized, yet, and I thought it would be nice to give Spaihts some extra mention since this is a passion project he has been behind for years and years. That's all. No biggie. Sorry for the confusion.

Yeah...when I first heard about this project, I was excited. But the marketing is lackluster and typical. Idk if I can commit to this at the theater...it maybe be cable/Netflix/Redbox for me...
