Passengers
« on: December 10, 2016, 09:15:51 pm »
Produced by Keanu Reeves' production company and directed by Morten Tyldum from a screenplay by executive producer Jon Spaihts, Sony's long-in-development Passengers, starring Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne, Andy Garcia, and Aurora Perrineau, focuses on two passengers, Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) and Aurora Dunn (Jennifer Lawrence), who are on a 120-year journey on the Starship Avalon to the distant colony planet Homestead II when their hibernation pods wake them ninety years too early. Jim and Aurora are forced to unravel the mystery behind the malfunction as the ship teeters on the brink of collapse, with the lives of thousands of passengers in jeopardy. The original romantic sci-fi action thriller will be released in theaters worldwide on December 21st.

I'm getting more and more concerned about this film as time goes by. That clip they released with the gravity outage in the pool was laughable.

As much as I'd love for there to be a good blockbuster/sci-fi film this year, I want this film to fail with every fiber of my being. Looks like generic, committee-approved garbage with a flimsy plot that exists only to leech off the star power of two completely mismatched leads. The only reason this was made was because the studio knew that retards like Dom Cobb would ensure that it made a boatload of money. And they were right. The only thing that can stop that now is if it gets anally pounded by critics and drops 75% in its second week. So... fingers crossed for a 30% RT rating.

Also, Kashmir's right about that clip (and all the trailers, really). If this wasn't such an obviously cynical load of horseshit, it might have some cult potential as a so-bad-it's-good sort of thing.

A 75% second weekend drop is damn near impossible over the holidays.

I think it should be a decent hit, if only cause of the two lead actors being major draws and the fact that it's releasing over the holidays.

However, we could hope that Rogue One's word of mouth is so good that consumers opt to see that over Passengers lest that movie get poor reviews (or at the very least less enthusiastic as those for Rogue One), even if the former would be in its second weekend.

Plus, it also has to compete with Assassin's Creed (though I wouldn't be surprised if that were to tank) and Why Him?, so the teen/adult demographics that are likely what Passengers is catering to will be heavily divided.

Though I should say, I had a good time with a friend of mine laughing at the trailer when we saw it in theaters before Hacksaw Ridge. The dialogue might give Bourne a run for his money. "Do you trust me?" "A year ago, everything changed." "This can't be happening!" "Something's wrong. Something big." "Every moment counts." "I have to do this." "You die, I die!" "There's something I have to tell you."

This movie looks like it has some serious bingo card potential for action movie-isms.

Daddy's Home managed to make 150M last holiday season, despite poor reviews and TFA coming directly before it.  I think Passengers and Sing should both do well over the holiday season, with Why Him? potentially becoming a sleeper.  Assassin's Creed is gonna bomb.
Goodbye!

How awesome would the movie be if Jennifer Lawrence just... falls off the ship...

I'm incredibly lukewarm to this.

Only interested since Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence seem to have decent chemistry.

I like the two leads and the premise seems interesting enough that I think it'll be a fun time, if not necessarily great cinema.

I'll probably end up seeing it, but I can't say I'm as intrigued as I was when it was when the first trailer dropped.
