Last week saw the release of the trailer for the Jennifer Lawrence/Chris Pratt science fiction film, Passengers. This was especially notable because it marked our first look at the film produced from the Jon Spaihts script that had landed on the Black List — a list of some of the best unproduced scripts in Hollywood — back in 2007. There it wallowed for a good eight years before Jennifer Lawrence and Christ Pratt both signed on to star in the film last year.

In addition, this was a production that had its share of rumored issues — with some sources saying the film caused a lot of headaches, and that a documentary surrounding its making would be better than the movie itself. Whether or not these rumors end up being true will have to wait until the film’s release, but until then, I’m hooked by the premise and talents of the leads.

Now, courtesy of the folks over at CBM, we have a couple new images from the film, showing Lawrence and Pratt making their way around the spaceship.

Check them out below!

What do you think of the images? Are you excited to see what this film has in store for us, or do all these old rumors from a year ago have you concerned? Let us know in the comments down below!

Below is the official synopsis for Passengers:

“On a routine journey through space to a new home, two passengers, sleeping in suspended animation, are awakened 90 years too early when their ship malfunctions. As Jim (Chris Pratt) and Aurora (Jennifer Lawrence) face living the rest of their lives on board, with every luxury they could ever ask for, they begin to fall for each other, unable to deny their intense attraction… until they discover the ship is in grave danger. With the lives of 5000 sleeping passengers at stake, only Jim and Aurora can save them all.”

Passengers hit theaters on December 21, 2016.
