In Theaters This Week Christmas Edition-Passengers, Assassin’s Creed, Why Him?, Sing, Fences

Passengers, Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  This week is a little different as Christmas falls on Sunday and studios are releasing films all through the week to catch vacationing filmgoers.

Trailer Time: Passengers Trailer #2 (2016) *Quite an Early Wake-Up Call*

I hope all had a wonderful Thanksgiving (I myself had an epic Filmsgiving that I will write up later in which I pulled a quad at the local cinema)!  I mention Filmsgiving (copyright pending) because in all four movies I saw (The Arrival, Hacksaw Ridge, The Edge of Seventeen, and Moana), they played the first trailer for Passengers.  Rogue One’s going to get its opening weekend, but both Passengers and Assassin’s Creed come out the next Friday and Passengers, especially, is getting a big ad push.  The second trailer for the film gives some more plot details, but is half the length so we’ll just have to find out the rest when Passengers opens December 23, 2016.  Official synopsis below:

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 was directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus).

Trailer Time: Passengers Trailer #1 (2016) *Star Lord & Katniss Go Space Traveling*

Rogue One is going to have much stiffer competition at the box office than last year’s Episode VII had.  In addition to Oscar films going from limited to wide release, Assassin’s Creed, A Monster Calls (which recently moved into the Christmas slot for better awards consideration), and now a stunning trailer for Passengers, which packs the star power of Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence.  Official synopsis below:

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.
