Here’s the first ‘Passengers’ poster for Lawrence’s December sci-fi movie

The outer-space adventure romance starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt doesn’t hit screens for another 106 days, 15 hours and 12 minutes, according to Boulevard’s exclusive Jennifer Lawrence “Passengers” Countdown Clock™. And here comes Sony Pictures, revving up the promotional machine by releasing the first poster for the movie.


Passengers is about a 5,000-passenger luxury spaceship on a 120-year journey to an interstellar colony. Lawrence, 26, and Pratt are unexpectedly awakened 90 years too early. Romance and Lawrence’s first on-screen sex scene follow — all of which she’s getting $20 million to act out. Pratt, 37, is perhaps best known for 2015’s “Jurassic World” and “Parks and Recreation.”

Labor Day in Louisville, 1936

Louisville Motors Co. picnic at Fontaine Ferry Park.

The sign over a crowd gathered at a pavilion at Fontaine Ferry Park in western Louisville says: “Gigantic Display of Daylight Fire Works, Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 7,” above a smaller sign with the Ford Motor logo. The display they’re looking at appears to be part of a car with a steering wheel and gauges, according to the caption supplied by the University of Louisville Photographic Archives.

Ford Motor started making cars in Louisville in 1913 with 11 employees, a decade after Henry Ford founded the company in a converted factory in Detroit. More about Ford’s presence in the city.
