New Passengers trailer- romantic adventures

Passengers is an epic sci-fi romance for this Christmas, and it features a mega cast in Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt.

Alrighty, Passengers is planning on being one of the biggest movies of the Christmas period. And it stands a good chance thanks to little competition from other romantic titles and the sheer star wattage of the leading cast in Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt.

This latest trailer bigs up the adventuresome part of the romance. And it's looking pretty pleasant.

It's nice to know that the entire film isn't about being doomed, with some time spent getting to know these characters and, more importantly, letting them get to know eachother. There's no doubt these are two extremely charming performers, and it's going to be fun to watch them interact.

It's also a kind of weird trailer, using some obvious moments of terrifying peril in the latter half but pairing it with a pop song to make it seem like everyone's having an action packed jolly-time. Still, it might end up being a better indication of what the film will actually present.

We'll find out on the 21st of December when the film arrives in Irish cinemas.
