Passengers movie billboards...

And the award for most unimaginative ad campaign of the holiday season goes to Passengers.

Why is it that Hollywood is so afraid of science fiction, because looking at these ad creatives for Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt's new movie, Sony Pictures clearly embraces star power over sci-fi premise.

This Christmas head-shots are in it seems, and you'd never know that these hot young things star in a movie about a luxury interstellar spacecraft bound for a distant colony plant 120 years away when two of the 5,000 souls traveling in suspended animation are awakened.

Spending time alone on their voyage in outer space on a giant ship these two passengers start to fall in love, just when they learn that their space vessel is malfunctioning and endangering their entire crew.

No there's not a spacesuit, spacecraft, or constellation in sight in these ads, which is strange considering that some of the top grossing films of all time include the likes of Avatar, Star Wars, Jurassic World and whole host of fantastical superhero movies.

Understandably the pairing of two of the hottest properties in Hollywood makes some people excited, but marketeers let's live a little shall we and try and let folks know that type of movie they may be going to see.

These Passengers movie billboards were photographed around the skies of L.A. from November 14 to November 25, 2016, including along the Sunset Strip, La Brea Avenue, Fountain Avenue and Hollywood & Highland.

Fans of Jennifer Lawrence can also enjoy these Joy movie billboards and all these Hunger Games movie billboards, whilst admirers of Chris Pratt can check him out in these Jurassic World movie billboards and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movie billboards.

Daily Billboard is genuinely excited for this new movie written by Jon Spaihts and directed by Morten Tyldum, but let's hope the spacefaring ride is far more exciting than these billboards appear in the city skyline.
