First Look at Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt’s Sci-Fi Love Story Passengers

The highly anticipated movie featuring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt as romantic leads in a science fiction setting has released a first look! Passengers is set to be released by Columbia Pictures on December 21, 2016.

The science fiction love story stars Lawrence as Aurora and Pratt as Jim Preston; both are passengers on board a posh spacecraft headed for a colony called Homestead II that’s a brief 120 years away from the ship’s point of origin. Aurora and Jim accidentally wake up from their suspended animation 90 years too early and then get up to all the things normal people would when they’re alone on a fancy-ass spaceship for the next century, but the wrinkle comes in when they realize the ship is malfunctioning, putting the other 5,000 passengers on board in mortal danger.

The film was directed by Morten Tyldum, who received an Oscar nomination for his work on The Imitation Game. He told EW he is “very, very happy with the movie,” and went so far as to say, “Every generation has its love story. I feel like this is it.”
