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
When Pratt asks the holographic room's computer where the ship is in space, it replies that Homestead II is in the Bhakti system. Bhakti (Hinduism) means devotion to God. See more »
When Aurora is trapped in the water bubble, she appears to be unable to swim out of it. Even in zero gravity Newtons third law of action equaling reaction still applies. Pushing water backwards (through swimming movements) would easily push her forward to the surface and out of the bubble. See more »
Ignore the critics- a great movie with lots of suspense
I'm almost convinced film critics are paid off...I thoroughly enjoyed this movie more than most of the "critically acclaimed" films I've watched this year. This movie had everything- love, drama, philosophical/existential questions, and incredibly suspenseful moments (and not just action scenes!!). The acting was great, pacing was good (never was bored), and the visuals were amazing as well. Also the trailer didn't spoil the movie at all, which was nice. My only gripe would be about the ending, which was still fine.
Overall would really recommend watching over the holidays. Really enjoyed it.
