Watch Passengers Free Online In Hd

Passengers is a 2016 American science fiction-thriller adventure film directed by Morten Tyldum and written by Jon Spaihts. It stars Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne and Andy García. The film tells about two people who wake up 90 years too soon from an induced hibernation on board a spaceship bound for a new planet.

The film was released in the United States on December 21, 2016 in 2D and RealD 3D by Columbia Pictures. Upon its release, Passengers received mixed to negative reviews from critics and has grossed $178 million, against its $110 million production budget.

The starship Avalon is transporting over 5,000 colonists to the planet Homestead II, a journey that takes 120 years. The colonists and the entire crew are in hibernation pods, but as the ship passes through a large asteroid field, the ship's shield is heavily strained causing a malfunction that awakens one passenger, mechanical engineer Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), 90 years early.

After a year of isolation, with no company except Arthur (Michael Sheen), an android bartender, Jim, despondent, contemplates suicide. One day he notices beautiful Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence) in her pod. Her video profile reveals she is a writer with a humorous personality. After struggling with the morality of manually reviving Aurora for companionship, he awakens her, claiming it was due to a pod malfunction like his. Aurora, devastated that she will likely grow old and die before the ship reaches Homestead II, attempts a fruitless effort at re-entering hibernation, just as Jim had tried. Eventually, she accepts her situation and begins writing a book about her experiences. Jim and Aurora grow closer, becoming lovers.

A year later, Jim inadvertently allows Arthur to reveal to the truth to Aurora. She is distraught, alternately berating, shunning, and physically attacking Jim. Soon after, however, another pod failure awakens Gus (Laurence Fishburne), a Chief Deck Officer. The three discover multiple failures in the ship's systems. Gus attempts repairs with Jim and Aurora's help, while Aurora still blames Jim for stealing her life, claiming it is tantamount to murder. Gus' body begins failing; medical tests in the Autodoc, an automated medical diagnostics and treatment pod, show that his hibernation pod's malfunction has caused multiple diseases and organ failures and he has hours left to live. Before dying, Gus gives Jim and Aurora his ID badge to access crew areas and repair the ship.

The two find and trace a colliding asteroid's path through the ship's hull from two years earlier that damaged the computer administering the reactor. Attempts to repair the computer lead to further reactor damage. Jim realizes a fusion reactor must be vented by opening an outer vent hatch. Aurora assists Jim while admitting she is terrified of losing him and living on the ship alone. Aurora, from inside the ship, and Jim, outside it, successfully vent the reactor. However, Jim's tether breaks loose and his damaged spacesuit is losing oxygen. Aurora retrieves the seemingly deceased Jim and resuscitates him in the Autodoc. Jim later learns that the Autodoc can act as a makeshift hibernation pod for Aurora. She realizes this would mean never seeing Jim again.

After 88 years, the ship's passengers and crew awaken shortly before arrival on Homestead II. They discover a lush vegetation and a small house on the ship's concourse area. Aurora's completed book is found, and it is revealed that she chose to stay awake with Jim and finish writing her story.

Yes, it was a popular script. It’s one of those stories that really grabs you and you fall in love with it. It’s very smart and funny and clever and such a page-turner I couldn’t put it down. Every 10 pages, something new happens! At the same time, it’s a very intimate movie, while taking place on this epic scale. For me, it’s a story about what’s important to live a full life. What are the things we need as humans? It’s not afraid to entertain but at the same time it asks big questions about what does it mean to really feel happy. Every generation has its love story. I feel like this is it. I had to do it.

— Director Morten Tyldum[8]
The original script for Passengers was written by Jon Spaihts in 2007, and had been in development hell for years.[9] At one point, the film was set to star Keanu Reeves and Emily Blunt,[10] with the production budget being a relatively low $35 million.[11] Brian Kirk was originally scheduled to make his feature directorial debut with the film, with Reeves in the lead.[12][13] On December 5, 2014, it was announced that Sony Pictures Entertainment had won the auction for the rights to the film.[14] In early 2015, Morten Tyldum was chosen to helm the film.[15] Tyldum had always wanted to do a massive sci-fi action movie, but also stressed the importance of a 'big guy' character-driven sci-fi film, rather than a cold and distant one.[7]

Metro described its plot as bearing a resemblance to the EC Comics story "50 Girls 50" by Al Williamson, first published in the July–August 1953 issue of Weird Science,[16] in which two passengers of a colony spaceship are awoken from hibernation early and fall in love.

The cast – Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne and Aurora Perrineau – were announced between February 2015 and January 2016.[17][18][19][20][21] Lawrence was paid $20 million against 30 percent of the profit after the movie breaks even and Pratt was paid $12 million.[11][22]

This film was recorded by Sony Pictures Entertainment.[23] Principal photography on the film began in September 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia.[24][25] Filming occasionally took place for full days with a bulk of the shooting done around the two leads only. Rodrigo Prieto served as cinematographer, and Maryann Brandon was hired as film editor.[26][27]

Thomas Newman composed the musical score for Passengers.[28] Spaihts said that he wrote Passengers while listening to Newman's previous scores.[29] Also, Imagine Dragons recorded a song, "Levitate", for the film's soundtrack. It was released on November 29, 2016.[30]

In August 2015, Sony Pictures Entertainment set the film's release date for December 21, 2016, in the United Kingdom, United States and Canada. The film was concurrently released in 3D and RealD 3D formats,[31] with the international rollout running through Christmas and the New Year, to January 12, 2017.[32]

Box office
As of January 8, 2017, Passengers has grossed $80.9 million in the United States and Canada and $97.3 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $178.2 million, against a production budget of $110 million.[2]

Passengers opened alongside Sing and Assassin's Creed, and was initially expected to gross around $50 million from 3,478 theaters over its first six days of release, although the studio was projecting a more conservative $35 million debut.[33][34] After making $1.2 million from Tuesday night previews[35] and $4.1 million on its first day, projections for the six-day opening were lowered to $27 million.[36] It went on to gross $15.1 million in its opening weekend (a six-day total of $30 million), finishing third at the box office behind Rogue One and Sing.[37]

Critical response
On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 31% based on 210 reviews; the average rating is 5/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Passengers proves Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence work well together – and that even their chemistry isn't enough to overcome a fatally flawed story."[38] On Metacritic, the film has a score of 41 out of 100 based on 48 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[39] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B" on an A+ to F scale.[40]

Several reviewers have criticized the ethics of the core plot point where Jim decides to awaken one of the hibernating travelers for companionship. Rebecca Hawkes of The Telegraph described the film as not a romance but "a creepy ode to manipulation", describing the action as a "central act of violence" that is softened and justified, and compared it to a morally similar act in Interstellar where the perpetrator is shown as an antagonist.[41] Both Hawkes and Paul Tassi of Forbes said that the marketing team deliberately hid in the trailers the reason Aurora wakes up.[42] Andrew Pulver of The Guardian called it an "interstellar version of social-media stalking" and "a fantastically creepy start" that, contrary to romantic comedies that manage to "plane down" the nastiness of stalking tactics, here "it's gruesomely inescapable".[6] Alissa Wilkinson of Vox calls it "a fantasy of Stockholm syndrome, in which the captured eventually identifies and even loves the captor" and "a really disturbing wish fulfillment fantasy".[43]

In contrast, Cameron Metrejean of[unreliable source?] gave the film a mostly positive review praising the leads' chemistry, production design, effects and psychology of Jim's decision. "Better than most films, Passengers does a good job of planting the protagonist’s thoughts as your own. 'What would I do if I was faced with this possibility.' ...The scene of him drawing close to a full-body space suit is actually kind of heart breaking... It’s a reminder how physical human contact isn’t just a nicety, but it’s a basic necessity." [44]
