Passengers Trailer #2

"There's something they didn't tell us…" Sony has unveiled a new 60-second TV trailer for the sci-fi thriller Passengers, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence as two space travelers stuck on an interstellar spaceship. With about a month to go until release, Sony is finally ramping up their marketing and pushing out tons of TV spots (one is included below) as well as marketing material for this movie. It's finally looking pretty damn good, and this new footage shows even more scenes form the movie (that involve lots of VFX). The first trailer looked great, and I'm still very excited to see this movie. They don't seem to be deviating too far of course (from the script) and everything looks polished. Bring on more epic space travel sci-fi! Dive in.

Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Morten Tyldum's Passengers, direct from YouTube:

You can also see the first official trailer for Passengers here, for even more footage from this movie.

Passengers 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?

Ahh, Jennifer Lawrence. I love how Laurence Fishburn just keeps growing and growing and growing. Eventually he'll be a new moon of Earth.

Thinking its his fault.

Shhh! 😉 You have to go see it to find out...

This movie would work better with another actress. Maybe Noomi Rapace. Jennifer Lawrence isn't convincing at all in this role.

At previous points in development they had Reese Witherspoon and Rachel McAdams cast (opposite Keanu Reeves). I thought both of them were MUCH better choices than Jennifer Lawrence. But... in the end, if it was her involvement (e.g. star power) that helped finally get this made with a big enough budget, then there's nothing we can do. Just hope it still turned out great.

Alex Billington on Nov 23, 2016


Rachel McAdams is a great choice.

I thought so, too. When I read the script, the description of the character and her quirks and everything (she's a journalist and after Spotlight - bingo!) she seemed ideal. I was sad when she left...

Alex Billington on Nov 23, 2016


She's growing to be better and better actress ...

Agreed. However Rapace was the worst thing about Prometheus. She just wasn't good. But yes, this is most likely a pass.

I loved her performance. I thought she was the best thing in Prometheus. She reminded me of Sigourney Weaver: A strong woman in a frail body.

Oh man lets not talk about Prometheus please. 🙂 BEating a dead horse. IMO only Fassbinder was decent. Everything else was terrible.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Nov 23, 2016


I liked Prometheus for what it was: A good sci-fi movie with a fresh and philosophical approach. People were disappointed because they didn't find the paint by numbers typical space horror thriller. ( read an Alien remake). You can't repeat the same trick forever and hope you'll have the same impact on the viewers. And Ridley Scott did well in exploring the mythology from a fresh and original angle. Well, we could debate the weak writing in few parts ( Thanks to Lindelof the genius of half baked ideas that go nowhere), but all in all, it was a very enjoyable experience.

Well said... It was enjoyable...

Pretty sure the worst thing about Prometheus was it's terrible script.

Two of the biggest stars in Hollywood in a movie that's been trying to get made for years, and they keep selling the HELL out of it. Makes me leary....I'll wait for the reviews. I'm betting it's "just okay".

RAW_D on Nov 23, 2016


It looks like a standard sf with some extra budget. To be honest, nothing more ...

shiboleth on Nov 23, 2016


This looks actually quite good. Better than the second trailer of rogue one...
