Jennifer Lawrence has already been nominated for an Oscar for this.

Doesn't matter, Natalie Portman will win for Jackie. Lock it down.

Too late, Lawrence has already won.

Whoa, did The Revenant turn into The Shining part of the way through? I still haven't watched it all.

Sony marketing team still doesn't know how to cut effective trailers.

I'm still not sure if I can buy Pratt in a dramatic role. He always looks like he's a second away from busting out a one-liner.

Re: Passengers (2016, D: Morten Tyldum) S: Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt

I've seen the first trailer a crap ton of times over the past two months. Don't know if I can take another . This movie has become a lot like The Revenant last year in that I want it released just so I can stop seeing trailers for it.

I think there something about that super sterile, overly white, sci-fi environment in some of these movies that give them a sort of generic look. I felt the same way about Oblivion (which I ended up liking). Sci-fi flicks that have that dirty, lived-in appearance look a lot more interesting to me most of the time, even knowing nothing about the plot, aesthetically they just look better, IMO.

I think 2001 is the only clean space environment thing that is good. I can't think of many.

No Golden Globe noms. and a continued embargo on reviews. Not a good sign.

To be fair, those two things also applied to Rogue One.

Good point, I don't know why Hollywood even tries anymore.

Re: Passengers (2016, D: Morten Tyldum) S: Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt

I never even knew this movie existed until I got an email today from Sony pitching rewards points (Sony Card), followed a link in it to a trailer, watched the trailer for the movie, now I'm really intrigued. Came here and found a thread for it started in September, didn't know anything about it. I think the movie title threw me, I was expecting something entirely different than a scifi movie. It looks like it might be pretty good, I'm in for it...

You obviously don't watch TV. This has been plastered all over for quite some time.

Re: Passengers (2016, D: Morten Tyldum) S: Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt

I am surprised this is coming out the Weds after star wars.

I know this might skew slightly more toward women since it has Lawrence, but it still is sci-fi.

Yeah those are pretty rough. This looks like a good candidate for the big-budget bomb of the holiday season.
