A space romantic movie penned by Jon Spaihts and directed by Oscar-nominated Norwegian director Morten Tyldum, the story was defined as a refreshing and one of the best stories he had ever read by Sony Pictures chairman Tom Rothman.
He further elaborated on the story as an epic and emotionally exhausting tale of two voyagers who know they will never return home and the journey they are taking is unique. He said that the story required two actors that were nothing less than exceptional.
This is when he cued in the lead actors for the movie, Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence who came on stage to read out their character descriptions. Jennifer told us that she was playing the character of a journalist who wanted to be one of the first people to make a 120 years long journey to a planet and back and write about it.
She’s very ambitious and passionate about her work. Chris then continued by telling the audience that he was playing Jim, a mechanic who was looking towards the journey to be somewhere he could be useful instead of the current world where broken things were just replaced by new ones.
According to VanityFair, Jennifer then said the line that they couldn’t be more opposite and it came out overtly dramatic which caused her to break away from the teleprompter and laugh. It only took a second for Pratt to follow as he made fun of Jen’s character calling her over-privileged and glamorous while Jim was a poor hobo eating oatmeal.
Jen then laughed and announced half price on tickets for the audience to lighten up the mood. Pratt then engaged the audience directly. He thanked them for coming out and asked them if they were getting bored.
He said that they should be drunk and fed and making mistakes as that was what Vegas was all about. Jen declared that she had worked at a theater to audience applause.
They asked Rothman if they could go off stage now but he seized the moment to flaunt their chemistry to the crowd. They then continued and said that they were both proud of the movie and cued the reel and they explained the premise of the story.
They are both travelling in a sleek, sterile ship where a malfunction happens with Jim’s hibernation pod 60 years before the time set for disengagement. He then roams around the ship for a whole year, hanging around with a robotic bartender (Simon Pegg) for company.
He is alone and wandering and a year later Jen’s character’s pod open and they are then left wondering on the ship where they develop feelings for one another, dress up and go on dates.
According to ScreenRant, there is is a scene where Lawrence is seen climbing over a table in one scene to make out with Pratt and another segment shows the two making out in the spacecraft's pool.
Throughout both the characters feel like they are on a sinking ship and they manage to float out in space but there fate is left unknown. It was an unexpected presentation which ended with Pratt accidentally dropping his mic on Jen’s foot to which she yelped.
If the story of the movie is not compelling, the chemistry between these two stars is a must watch and there improvised address helped Sony make the point.
