A romance-sci-fi sounds too tempting to give it a miss. No, a romance sci-fi is the dream. Imagine Star Wars or Interstellar only charged with emotions and a love story that leads the narrative. We all wished Passenger to be that movie for us. However, if early reviews are to be believed the much-talked about movie apparently gets pretty ‘meh’ by the end of it.

The film hits the screens in UK this week and here’s everything you need to know about Passengers - that will help you decide if you need to give it a ‘yay’ or a ‘nay’.

The Plot

The film follows the story of two passengers aboard a spacecraft on a 120 year long journey to another planet, who are somehow awakened from their sleep some 90 years earlier than due,  after a malfunction in their hibernation pods. While some thousand other passengers are still asleep, Jim and Aurora (Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence) discover that the malfunction might have been bigger than they had imagined and the entire craft might be headed towards destruction.

The Cast

So, yes the cast is minimalist here. But, that doesn’t mean we don’t have enough perks. We have Chris Pratt as Jim, who is of course too hot to handle like in everything else he is in. Our guy Chris also has a few exciting stunt scenes that we can totally look forward to. Add Jennifer Lawrence to that equation - who is not only gorgeous but also an actress we can totally relate with. These two together basically look like perfection.

Check the out in this interview with Ellen, and you’ll know what we are talking about we cannot help but ship this ship!

Some Sizzling Scenes

The film also has some intimate scenes between the two. Jennifer also said in an interview that she got really drunk to do the particular scene because it was a first for her.

We really don’t mind some hot and sizzling scenes now, do we?

The Film Could Have Starred Keanu Reeves and Reese Witherspoon

The film was basically stuck in production hell for a while. The script had been written a long time ago and a lot of actors had originally been considered for it. The long list of actresses who almost played the female lead included Reese Witherspoon and Emily Blunt. Keanu Reeves was roped in for the male part. Apparently he was pretty keen on the role but eventually the film landed on Chris Pratt’s lap when it finally got the green signal!
