Passengers (2016) Movieholic Hub speculations:

As with most science fiction space travel movies, there has to be some representation of time presence and this is no different with the Passenger (2016) movie. Not all is about the future but also pacing itself about the past. Telling the story of history with an Art Deco present in the bar or could the director’s goal, Morten Tyldum be aiming to set a romantic feeling accustoming Jim and Aurora affection date for the audience to capture.

The neon sign Homestead II rotates above where Jim is sitting. Could this be a sign that there are two star ship racing to reach the new planet.

At some point, the Avalon spaceship seems to be travelling toward the sun. Is that where all the passengers on-board an Avalon organic like spaceship is destine to travel towards. This shot reminds us of the science fiction thriller movie Sunshine (2007).

The most romantic of all walks, a couple stepping into space seeing the stars up close. Now beat that other romance movies to come.

“No! You die, I die.” Aurora screams out. This is the future of the Romeo and Juliet story in outer space.

There is a medical lab, one that heals the body and treats the injured. Yes, it’s on this ship as evidence points to this in section of the movie trailer when half dead Jim gets pulled by Aurora towards the technical advance medical bed.

What kind of character does Andy Garcia play, the white stylized mustache beard coming out of the sliding doors. He seems to be a general or a chef commander with the 3 stars on either side his shoulder and selves. Could they be on another mothership controlling the faith of the Avalon.

Gus Mancuso (Laurence Fishburne) is no general but aims to set the tied straight with the politic game to make things right according to Movieholic Hub’s speculation. Just maybe he is there to help save the 5259 passengers lives.

Aurora in her undergarment enters a bubble of liquid oxygen when there is gravity lost, presumably that is likely to provide oxygen and protect her from the exploding debris flying around within her surrounding. Seen something similar in other science fiction movies such as Final Fantasy – Spirits Within (2001) and is pretty cool.

“There is a reason we woke up early.” a quote from Jim. For sure he know something behind the whole saga.
