Ar first glance, Passengers seemed to be a slick, shiny thriller starring two of the biggest names in movies: Lawrence and Chris Pratt.

The studio teased the scene where Lawrence’s character goes for a swim, and the spaceship she’s in loses gravity. When there’s no gravity, liquid forms a sphere, and the image of Lawrence caught in a big ball of water was striking.

When people realized what the movie was really about, more than a few viewers balked. Pratt and Lawrence are in hypersleep on a large ship. It flies through a storm, resulting in a malfunction, and Pratt wakes up before he’s supposed to.

He spends a year completely on his own, emotionally crippled by loneliness. He spots Lawrence, falls for her, wakes her up, and lies about why he did it. In waking Lawrence up, Pratt was effectively killing her because she’ll die before the ship reaches its destination.

The story could have been a thoughtful look about the ethics of that situation, but as told, it turned a lot of viewers off. Some argued that in essence, the movie was justifying date rape.

Lawrence herself told EW that while she still liked the movie, “there was just stuff that I wished I’d looked into deeper before jumping on.”

What made the ‘Passengers’ sex scene so awkward?

This all stood in stark contrast to the talk around Passengers before it came out. In more than one interview, Lawrence referred to having filmed her first sex scene.

The movie was PG-13, so nothing explicit was shown, but that didn’t make it any easier for Lawrence, who told Seth Myers:

“Pratt’s the best, but I was so nervous. I was paranoid about coming across as a predator, for one, because in sex scenes, you don’t know what to do. Is it enough? But your
