Guess we didn’t have to wait all that long. Following on from the teaser that aired recently, here is the first full-length preview of Passengers, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence as two astronauts who are awoken early from cryosleep when their ship ends up in trouble.

Like we mentioned earlier, it’s a vague premise, but the choice of the two leads has us far more interested than we’d usually be. Roll on December.

Below is the official synopsis for Passengers:

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are two passengers onboard a spaceship transporting them to a new life on another planet. The trip takes a deadly turn when their hibernation pods mysteriously wake them 90 years before they reach their destination. As Jim and Aurora try to unravel the mystery behind the malfunction, they begin to fall for each other, unable to deny their intense attraction… only to be threatened by the imminent collapse of the ship and the discovery of the truth behind why they woke up.

Passengers will be released in cinemas on 23 December 2016. For all the latest movie news, pick up the latest issue of SciFiNow.
