Passengers 

The starship Avalon is transporting over 5,000 colonists and crew in hibernation pods to the planet Homestead II, a journey that takes 120 years. Thirty years into its journey, the ship encounters an asteroid belt, in which it collides with a large asteroid. As a result of the collision, the ship’s protective energy shield is weakened enough to allow a piece of it to pass through the shield, impacting the ship. This causes a malfunction that awakens one passenger, mechanical engineer Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), 90 years too early. After a year of isolation, with no company except Arthur (Michael Sheen), an android bartender, Jim contemplates suicide. One day he notices beautiful Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence) in her pod. Her video profile reveals she is a writer with a humorous personality. After struggling with the morality of manually reviving Aurora for companionship, he awakens her, claiming her pod malfunctioned like his. The only one knowing about what Jim did, is Arthur. He promises Jim to not tell Aurora about why she really woke up. Aurora, devastated she may grow old and die before the ship reaches Homestead II, attempts a fruitless effort at re-entering hibernation, just as Jim had tried. Eventually, she accepts her situation and begins writing a book about her experiences. Jim and Aurora grow closer, becoming lovers. Another year later, Jim inadvertently gives Arthur permission to reveal the truth to Aurora. She is distraught, alternately berating, shunning, and physically attacking Jim. Soon after, however, another pod failure awakens Gus (Laurence Fishburne), a Chief Deck Officer. The three discover multiple failures in the ship’s systems, getting worse all the time, which will eventually cause the ship to break down if not repaired. Gus attempts repairs with Jim and Aurora’s help, while Aurora still blames Jim for stealing her life, claiming it is tantamount to murder. Gus’ body begins failing; medical tests in the Autodoc, an automated medical diagnostics and treatment pod, show that his hibernation pod’s malfunction has physically damaged his body, and he has hours left to live. Before dying, Gus gives Jim and Aurora his ID badge to access crew areas and repair the ship. The two discover a series of holes through the ship’s hull from the asteroid collision two years earlier and find out that it damaged the computer administering the fusion reactor that is powering the ship. This has been causing all the malfunctions on the ship, for the computer is trying to fix multiple problems, but overloads while doing so. Attempts to repair the computer lead to further reactor damage. Jim realizes that the reactor must be vented by opening the vent hatch from the exterior of the ship. Aurora assists while admitting she is terrified of losing Jim and living on the ship alone. Aurora, from inside the ship, and Jim, outside, successfully vent the reactor. However, Jim’s tether snaps and his damaged spacesuit is losing oxygen. Aurora retrieves and resuscitates Jim in the Autodoc, relieved that he is alive and seemingly forgiving him for his decision; the two share a moment of embrace. Jim later learns that the Autodoc can act as a makeshift hibernation pod for Aurora. Since there is only one Autodoc, she realizes this would mean never seeing Jim again. Eighty-eight years later, the ship’s passengers and crew awaken on schedule shortly before arrival on Homestead II. They discover a small house amid lush vegetation on the ship’s grand concourse area. Aurora’s book reveals that she chose to stay awake with Jim and finish writing her story.
