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.”

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.
