Passengers won’t be released nationwide until December 21, but the Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt film had its premiere on December 14 at the Regency Village Theatre. Only a small amount of critics have actually seen the film yet, but virtually all of them have hated it. The movie currently has a dreadful 24% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with only four out of 17 critics giving it a positive review.
Here are screenshots of some of the harshest reviews.
And here are some examples of people bashing the film on Twitter.
Damn, I’d love to be a fly on the wall at Columbia Pictures right now. People have to be in a total panic over there, running around the offices like chickens with their heads cut off. I’m sure they thought a movie with Lawrence and Pratt in the leading roles would be a slam dunk to make a killing at the box office and receive critical acclaim. But now, that $120 million budget might be looking worse than Gilbert Arenas’ infamous contract.
Even if the movie really does suck, at least we’ll always have these viral videos from their promotional tour.
