Meet the Cast of 'Passengers'
After nearly a decade stuck in development, Passengers is finally on the big screen. The sci-fi romance was written by Doctor Strange writer Jon Spaihts back in 2007 and centers on two people stuck on a ship where everyone else is in hibernation. The two people, played by Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, wake up 90 years too early during the 120-year journey to a planet called Homestead II.
