According to production designer Dyas, the inspiration for the ship's rotary design came from observing the seeds of sycamore trees, and how they spin like tiny helicopters as they fall. See more »
In all exterior shots surrounding astronomical objects (stars, etc) are displayed as if traveling at non-relativistic speeds. At their stated speed of 0.5c they would be experiencing very obvious aberrations, namely the compression of light wavelengths in the direction of travel (blue-shifting), and lengthening of wavelengths behind them (red-shifting) as they get further away.

I cannot understand all those bad reviews of Passengers
The movie is definitely worth your time. Firstly, 10/10 for realism. I would absolutely have done all those things if I were in their shoes. Secondly, the acting is one of the best I've seen (I was pretty skeptical about J.Lawrence but not anymore after this movie; and Chris Pratt's acting keeps getting better and better since GotG). The plot is quite unique (I do not believe I've ever seen another plot that resemble this). Lastly, the visuals is BREATHTAKING (I absolutely adore the ship design).
The pacing was a little bit too fast at the end but not that noticeable.
Sometime a simple movie with simple plot is better than s**t like Batman vs Superman because there are less space for mistakes. Also, do not expect much action in this movie (I expected more action but in the end I was OK without it.)
Also, sleeping beauty is also named Aurora xD
