Trivia

In the scene where Chris' character Jim takes Jennifer's characters Aurora outside the ship wearing the space suits, he turns off the magnetic effect In his shoes so that he'll float. Aurora then asks him "what are you doing?" and in response he asks "do you trust me?" while offering his hand. This is a reference to the famous scene from the disney classic "Aladdin", where Aladdin takes Jasmine on a magic carpet ride. See more »

Goofs

When the Avalon comes upon the meteor swarm at 50% of light speed, the encounter would not have appeared to happen in slow motion as portrayed in the film. It would have happened in the blink of an eye. See more »

Quotes

Aurora: You can't get so hung up on where you'd rather be, that you forget to make the most of where you are.

The special effects are necessary to the plot!
29 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I must admit I only went to see this movie to see the pool screen on the big screen, but boy am I glad I did!

I don't know why anyone would give this a less than stellar review. The story was excellent, good plot, interesting characters, well acted and (unlike several movies I've seen lately) the special effects are Integral to the plot. My daughter begrudgingly went with us because she believed the reviewers and thought the entire movie was about 2 people killing time stranded on a spaceship. That couldn't be farther from the truth! It was one of the most human stories I've seen this Christmas season and the only one, so far, I would consider seeing again!

I will recommend this to all my friends. I already called my mom and dad (in their 70's) and told them to go see it. No gratuitous violence (again, only what was needed to further the story). This is a great date movie.
