Jennifer Lawrence strikes a pose alongside her co-star Chris Pratt while attending CinemaCon 2016: Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Exclusive Product Presentation Highlighting 2016 Films held at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Tuesday (April 12) in Las Vegas.
The 25-year-old actress and Chris, 36, debuted a sneak peek of their upcoming sci-fi romance film Passengers, which sees them as passengers in a spacecraft traveling to a distant colony planet, but awakened decades early due to a malfunction in the ship’s sleep chambers.
“My character is a writer in New York and she wants to be one of the first people to make the 120-year journey to another planet and come back and write about it,” Jennifer explained (via Vanity Fair). “She’s very ambitious.”
“Jim is a mechanic and he is the type of guy who fixes things,” Chris said of his own character. “He uses his hands. But in the world we live in, when something breaks, you don’t fix something, you buy a knew one. So he’s become obsolete and wants to travel to a distant planet, to a new world and distant future, hoping he’ll be useful.”
“I really am extremely proud of this movie,” Chris continued to add, while Jennifer agreed. “Me too. If that sounded like I was being sarcastic, I was not. I want to make it clear that I am serious.”
