The much-missed Douglas Adams duly noted, “Space is big.” As such, it takes a mind-bogglingly long time to get anywhere. The starship Avalon is on a 120-year journey to the colony of Homestead II, so its manifest of 5,000-plus passengers has been put into stasis, to be woken four months out from arrival. But an asteroid storm has other ideas, damaging the ship and causing one stasis pod to prematurely evacuate. Its contents, Jim Preston (Chris Pratt), soon realises that he’s alone, and he makes do. But when he sees fellow passenger Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence), his loneliness wins through and he takes her life into his hands by waking her. He doesn’t tell her this, naturally, and they bond. But she’s probably going to find out… Titanic sees stars in this romantic drama that masquerades as a slick sci-fi adventure.
