The pair play Aurora and Jim, two unlucky souls who volunteered for a 120-year voyage to a distant colony planet known as ‘Homestead II’, unfortunately for them things turn sour when they’re let out of their cryo-sleep early.

If the trailer’s anything to go by though the pair won’t be twiddling their thumbs while they wait the 90 years it’ll take them to get to their new home and they’ll be plenty of action and even a romance to keep them entertained.
