PASSENGERS is a US sci-fi drama in which a man, travelling through space to a distant colony, awakes early from hibernation.


When a spaceship starts to malfunction characters are thrown around inside as the gravity fails, one character nearly drowns when they are trapped in a swimming pool. The ship starts to lose pressure and characters are deprived of oxygen or threatened by flames from a damaged reactor.

Injury detail

A character is struck in the arm by a shard of metal which leaves a small bloody hole in her skin after she pulls it out.


A couple kiss before falling onto a bed. In a later shot they lie naked on the bed in a darkened room.

Other issues include natural nudity as a man takes a shower with his bottom briefly visible. There is also some mild bad language with use of 'shit', 'screwed', 'son of a bitch', 'hell' and 'damn'. There are scenes of mild violence as a character punches and strikes at another as they lie on a bed. It is also implied that a character has considered suicide.
