OK, yes we're going to gush. But before we do, here's what you need to know about the film's plot. Aurora Lane (American Hustle's Jennifer Lawrence) and Jim Preston (Guardians Of The Galaxy's Chris Pratt) are two strangers bound for the planet Homestead II, along with thousands of others, to start new lives for themselves.
However, their journey across space goes far from hunky dory. When Jim and Aurora wake up early from hypersleep – always a pain when that happens – all they have for company is android bartender Arthur (Frost/Nixon's Michael Sheen).
The pair struggle to get along, but this cosmic clash of personalities has to take a back seat when the ship they’re travelling on encounters all kinds of critical problems, forcing the pair to work together and fix the big mess they're in.
While Pratt and Lawrence shine like the stars that they are in this space-age adventure, Sheen’s turn as the benevolent yet quirky Arthur sees the Welsh actor take his place among film and TV’s most memorable bartenders.
