The Plot Of Passengers Seems To Be Based On This Old '50s Comic StripJason Torchinsky12/23/16 1:35pm21923EditPromoteGo to permalinkI admit, I have not seen the new movie Passengers. I have, however, read what the plot is about from various places, including this nicely detailed account. When I heard the basic story, it reminded me of something. Something I saw in an old book about spaceships. A comic. A weird, creepy, old ‘50s comic.
