Chris Pratt was surprised by the criticism for Passengers

21 April 2017 2:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Chris Pratt was apparently caught by surprise upon hearing the criticism for his 2016 movie Passengers.

The sci-fi drama, starring himself and Jennifer Lawrence, had a lot of buzz behind it, but ultimately was scorned by critics and never really caught fire with fans.

Passengers was set aboard a massive space vessel where Pratt and Lawrence are woken up halfway through the long slumber necessary to make the journey to their new planetary home.

As mentioned, the film was not received well, many finding the nefarious nature of some of the movie’s plot points as enough reason to savage the film.

And it turns out that Pratt himself didn’t know quite what to make of the reception it received. When asked if it surprised him the actor said, “It did, it really did. I was really caught off guard by that. It was definitely a lesson.”

Pratt however is happy with the film, »

Chris Pratt opens up about Passengers as new fan video suggests an interesting theory

20 April 2017 9:22 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Scott Davis

Chris Pratt is beginning the long slog that is the worldwide press tour for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 (the cast and filmmakers come to the UK next week) and while most of the attention is on the long-awaited sequel, some of the talks has veered off into chats about Jurassic World 2 and, more specifically, his previous film Passengers.

The sci-fi romantic drama, directed by Morten Tyldem (The Imitation Game), co-starred Oscar Winner Jennifer Lawrence and was met with a mixed response from critics on its release back in December. Audiences too were perhaps not as big as the studio would have hoped given the budget and cast involved, and the film grossed around $300million from its reported $110million. But despite the criticism and lukewarm box-office, Pratt spoke to Variety about the film and said that while he is still proud of the film reactions »

Chris Pratt Admits He Was ‘Caught Off Guard’ by ‘Passengers’ Criticism

19 April 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Spoiler Alert: The following article contains some spoilers for Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence’s “Passengers.”

Chris Pratt is about to top the box office with “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2,” a follow-up to the 2014 blockbuster that made him an international movie star. It’s his first movie since December’s “Passengers,” which was eviscerated by critics – it currently holds a 31% on Rotten Tomatoes. Many took particular issue with a controversial plot point in the sci-fi romance.

In the film, Pratt plays Jim, one of 5,000 passengers in suspended animation on a ship taking 120 years to reach its destination. After accidentally awakening 90 years early, Jim endures a year of loneliness before making the decision to wake up a fellow passenger, Aurora, played by Jennifer Lawrence. This decision didn’t set well with some, such as the Guardian, who called it an “interstellar version of social-media stalking” or the New York Daily News, »
