WWII American Army Medic Desmond T. Doss, who served during the Battle of Okinawa, refuses to kill people, and becomes the first man in American history to receive the Medal of Honor without firing a shot.
The spaceship, Starship Avalon, in its 120-year voyage to a distant colony planet known as the "Homestead Colony" and transporting 5,258 people has a malfunction in one of its sleep chambers. As a result one hibernation pod opens prematurely and the one person that awakes, Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) is stranded on the spaceship, still 90 years from his destination. Written by
In Passengers, the male lead is named Jim and is unexpectedly tasked with repairing a space craft. This is the same basis as the Apollo 13 incident, coincidently Jim is the name of the actual astronaut who performed the task in real life (assisted by a small crew and Houston). Also there is a very similar dialogue to that of Apollo 13 between the characters of Passengers when they briefly mention "turning the ship around" and how it would be quicker to keep going.

The distance from Earth to Arcturus is 36,6 light years. Traveling at 50% light speed it would take the ship 73 years to get there. Not 120.
120 years is a good time, assuming that the acceleration is not instant. See more »
I laughed at a man with no pants, until I realized I have no legs.

If you want a very enjoyable, aesthetically pleasing and romantic movie to watch, I think this is absolutely perfect. I think critics are giving it bad reviews because it didn't have the best dialogue, so don't go if you're just looking for something negative in a movie. If you're emotional, I think this would be a good movie to watch during that time. It's beautiful, well done, heartbreaking in some moments, and has amazing actors. It's comedic and romantic, with some intense parts so it has a lot of complements and genres in it. This isn't a negative thing at all, this movie just has it all. The story line and the message are thought provoking, and it's an all around amazing movie.
