Chris Pratt, of Guardians of the Galaxies fame, and audience favourite Jennifer Lawrence, are paired together for a love story that is out of this world in Passengers.
It is all set to hit the screens on 21 December 2016, giving tough competition to Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling's La La Land, which is also set to release in the holiday season.
Directed by The Imitation Game's Morten Tyldum, Passengers is set in a futuristic interstellar spaceship transporting 5,000 colonists to Homestead II, in a journey set to take 120 years, leaving its occupants in suspended animation until the ship reaches its destination.
However Jim Preston, (played by Pratt) is roused from his sleep and is joined by Aurora Dunn (played Lawrence) who has also been awakened. As expected, the two start falling in love and try and save the malfunctioning spaceship before their journey proves futile.

Last year, Passengers was in the news for a rather interesting but positive reason: Jennifer Lawrence was paid 8 million more than her co-star Chris Pratt because of her popularity, making it a positive move for gender equality in Hollywood.
Chris Pratt though is also climbing the popularity ladder with his role as Star Lord/ Peter Quill in the popular Marvel Cinematic Universe series Guardians of the Galaxy.
