Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are arguably two of the hottest stars out there right now. Jennifer Lawrence rose to become an it-girl pretty fast. But when you make a dent in your Academy Awards invitations year after year while juggling two massive blockbuster franchises for over half a decade, you definitely get noticed. Not to mention she won an Academy Award in 2013 for her work in "Silver Linings Playbook." And Chris Pratt? Well, I never used to believe in overnight success, but somehow it happened to Pratt in 2014. It happened with the one-two punch of "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Lego Movie" that made him a top name immediately. Even though he was a television success before. These two are destined for good things, and its going to be great fun seeing them work together.
What doesn't look like great fun is "Passengers," a science fiction film about a group of people who have abandoned earth and are in deep space sleep. But Lawrence and Pratt woke up early, and they can't go back to sleep. Why did they wake up early? Is there a purpose? What is that purpose?
We already know that Lawrence is a capable dramatic actress, so it looks as if this is going to be a test for Pratt. He seems a little out of his comfort zone here, but that can be a good thing. Let's see how he can handle this sort of role, I have faith in him.
What do you guys think of this?
