We finally have our first look at Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt’s new movie “Passengers.”

In the film, Lawrence and Pratt are the only two “Passengers” awake on a 5,000 man vessel, where the rest of the population is in suspended animation. Their ship starts to malfunction, putting those 5,000 people and themselves in a critical position.

In these first two photos, we see Pratt and Lawrence looking through an opening, possibly into outer space or possibly into the innards of a malfunctioning aircraft. The other photo shows the stars in the middle of a conversation, Pratt in full space gear.

“I honestly couldn’t ask for a better cast. They’re so great together, and both of them are so hard-working. They take the characters so seriously and bring so much to the roles with charm and intelligence and charisma,” said director Morten Tyldum (“The Imitation Game”) in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “They really went for it and it is phenomenal to watch.”

But aside from the pairing of two of Hollywood’s most likable actors, Tyldum added that the film will be an emotional ride.

“You will laugh and cry and hold your breath and be at the edge of your seat. It has chills. It also will make you smile and laugh a lot. We wanted a playful movie. And if you have Chris and Jen it’s impossible not to have — they’ve come up with a lot of stuff on set,” he said.

“They’re both extremely funny. They’d try this and that and come up with really funny stuff. They can go very dramatic but their great chemistry – they’re just so good,” added Tyldum.

“Passengers” will blast into theaters on December 21.
