I’m going to assume that Caesars Palace & CinemaCon are giving away huge perks to the long list of A-list celebrities showing up to the conference in Las Vegas. The sheer number of celebs in attendance pretty amazing, to the say the least. Actress Jennifer Lawrence took time out of her busy schedule to promote her upcoming sci-fi film “Passengers,” which also stars Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne. The film, which is apparently setting itself up as an Oscar contender, isn’t scheduled to release until December 21st, so it’s fairly obvious that studios have lofty expectations.

Here’s the plot for all you sci-fan fans:

The spaceship, Starship Avalon, on its 120 years voyage to a distant colony planet known as the “Homestead Colony” and transporting 5,259 people has a malfunction in two of its sleep chambers. As a result, two hibernation pods open prematurely and the two people that awoke are stranded on the spaceship, still 90 years from their destination. Source
