EW has an interview with director Morten Tyldum on Passengers. They don’t give much away but you do get a quick look at the two leads, and the general “look” of the sci-fi tale of love. Passengers, as anyone who has read the script knows, is about two humans aboard a space ship headed for another habitable planet. As far as I could tell, it works as a showcase for these two very charismatic, funny, successful actors more than it does a rumination on the meaning of life. You can read the interview here.
First few tweets from the screening are ecstatic
