This romantic adventure from Morten Tyldum (
The Imitation Game
) unfolds in outer space and unites two shining stars, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Sadly, what transpires is stratospherically misjudged. It's set on a spaceship transporting 5,000 exiles to a new planet, with hibernation pods keeping them in suspended animation for the 120-year journey. A collision with an asteroid prematurely awakens Pratt's affable mechanic who, after a year living alone, fixates on a sleeping stranger, played by Lawrence. Eventually he sabotages her pod, robbing her of her future which grotesquely undermines the whirlwind romance that follows. Taking the story further into
territory may have worked, instead Tyldum forces a conventional resolution onto a disturbing premise. With understandable animosity making way for formulaic heroics, the leads are then plunged into a
-style survival situation. Those hoping to see Lawrence and Pratt light up the screen will be disappointed; in
the charismatic duo are set an impossible challenge of keeping a love story alive long past the point of no return.
A spacecraft transporting thousands of people to a distant planet malfunctions. As woken travelling companions Jim Preston and Aurora Lane fall in love, they are soon on a collision course with more technical problems and a dark secret. Fantasy adventure, starring Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt and Michael Sheen.
