Sony Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for their sci-fi drama Passengers. The film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt and takes place on a luxury spaceship bound for a human colony that’s 120 years away. When two of the passengers are mysteriously awakened 90 years too early, they strike up a relationship and quickly become the ship’s only hope of recovering from a serious malfunction. The film opens in theaters on December 21st.

Hey guys and gals love the show! So I saw that Central Intelligence with Kevin Hart and Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson is coming out soon but with an unrated version and my question is, why? Does it really get more home video buys just because it’s unrated? And why don’t they just release an “R” rated version? I remember this was kind of a trend a few years ago and then it stopped. I personally think it’s dumb and never made any movie better just because it was “unrated.” Thanks and keep on rocking!

Hey Collider Crew, I watch everyday. My question is regarding the movie commentaries you guys do. I recently listened to the Batman v Superman & Civil War ones and had so much fun with them. Back when you started them, it was said we could get 2 a month. But I know that’s been tough to do with all your new shows posted every day. I love listening to all of them, so I was wondering if you still plan on doing 2 a month (or maybe more) & what movies do you plan to commentate on in the near future? Thanks!

I was wondering what your thoughts would be if another movie set in the Lord of the Rings universe were to be announced. I am aware that the rights are all tied up in the Tolkien estate, but as everyone knows, money talks. There are so many great stories to tell. For instance, I thinks the Fall of Numenor would be great as it introduces us to new characters while also making the destruction of Sauron all the more meaningful. But, like we have seen with the Star Wars prequels and The Hobbit, a bad movie can leave a bad taste in people’s mouth for the whole franchise. Do you think another movie in Middle-Earth is a good idea? Thanks and keep up the great work!
Opening this Week (Brought to you by AMC Theatres)
The Magnificent Seven – Looking to mine for gold, greedy industrialist Bartholomew Bogue seizes control of the Old West town of Rose Creek. With their lives in jeopardy, Emma Cullen and other desperate residents turn to bounty hunter Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington) for help. Chisolm recruits an eclectic group of gunslingers to take on Bogue and his ruthless henchmen.
Hey Collider crew, long time fan here, I love every show you guys produce and watch religiously. My question is this: is there a genre of film you once avoided because it wasn’t for you, but then after seeing a movie in said genre you came around to really enjoy it? For me, I never cared for musicals but absolutely loved Across The Universe and Rock Of Ages, and because of those I’ve come around to giving musicals a chance before I pass judgement on them now.
Holla’ lads and lasses! Next weekend is actually one of the more interesting ones in recent months as Deepwater Horizon, Miss Peregrine’s and Masterminds all open up. My question is in what order are you looking forward to seeing each one from most to least?

Greetings Collider Party People! I was thinking about the enormous time investment in waiting to get into Hall H panels for big studio presentations like Marvel Studios and Warner Brothers. From afar it seems like the vibe and atmosphere of each are quite different. Where the WB panel felt like a grand epic cathedral set worship ceremony, Marvel felt like a spur of the moment comic book block party with lots of improv and fun. I can only imagine what each is like live. My question is in all your convention experiences, what was your favorite panel to attend live, and why?
