With the Summer now a not-so distant memory, all eyes are on the rest of the year to deliver where it fell short. Of course, we have Rogue One in December but we also have a little sci-fi love story starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence called Passengers on the way too, and the first trailer and poster for it have finally arrived online.

The Imitation Game director Morten Tyldum is directing the film, from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts that made the Black List of popular unmade scripts back in 2007. Sony Pictures have debuted the first trailer for the film, so check it out below:

And here's an international trailer too, with some different footage:

Passengers has been stuck in development hell for years now. There was even a point where Keanu Reeves was in talks for the lead role but, of course, things just never worked out. The script has been floating around for some time now as one of the most popular unmade scripts since 2007. Ever since it was revealed that Pratt and Lawrence were going to star together in a sci-fi drama directed by Morten Tyldum, I was excited - the film was one of my most anticipated films of the year, back when I made my list at the start of 2016.

The first trailer has me more excited than ever for this; the film looks incredible. I'm a massive fan of both Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence and I cannot wait to see them on-screen together for what looks an exciting, fun and original new sci-fi flick. A first poster for Passengers has also been released and it puts the spotlight on its two leads. I love the style of it.

Here's the synopsis:
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are two passengers on-board 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.
With Morten Tyldum at the helm, and starring Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne, Passengers is set to open in the U.K on December 23rd, 2016.
