Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Passengers tells the story of two people who mysteriously wake up from hibernation on a spaceship that still has 90 years left on its journey. From there, things go from bad to worse.


There’s a lot going on in this trailer: First, there’s the meet-cute between the only two conscious people on this ship. Then there’s a mysterious disaster striking the starship Avalon. And then there’s Laurence Fishburne, who suddenly shows up as literally the third human we see. Finally, Jim (Chris Pratt) says there’s something he needs to tell Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) about why she’s awake, since that detail was in earlier synopses of the film. (I’m not going to spoil it here.)

Mostly, it’s good to finally see a trailer for Passengers, which has been in limbo for years and gone through several rumored casts. But other than that, this looks like a pretty typical space movie.

Passengers comes out December 21.
