Here are the best Passengers movie quotes, featuring the dialogue from the film about two space travelers who awake 90 years too soon on their 120-year journey to another planet. The romantic science fiction film was written by Jon Spaihts and directed by Morten Tyldum. Passengers opened in theaters on December 21, 2016.

In Passengers, space ship Avalon is transporting 5,000 people to colonize a new planet via a 120-year journey through space. All are put into a hibernation sleep for the trip, but that all changes when a collision with an asteroid 30 years into the journey causes engineer Jim Preston (Chris Pratt) to wake. One year later, journalist Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence) to wake as well. The two meet and want to go back into hibernation, however according to Jim, that's not possible.

As the only people awake (aside from a robot bartender, portrayed by Michael Sheen) and 90 years left to go on their trip, Jim and Aurora develop a romantic relationship. But the trouble with the ship only gets worse. Another pod failure causes Chief Gus Mancuso (Lawrence Fishburne) to wake but none of the three know how to fix their sinking space ship. The problems with the ship, and between those on board, only get way worse as their journey continues.
