Jennifer Lawrence-Chris Pratt movie "Passengers" now filming in Atlanta

Jennifer Lawrence is no stranger to Atlanta, having filmed three of the four movies in the "Hunger Games" series here. Now she's back for "Passengers," with Chris Pratt.

The star of "Catching Fire" and "Mockingjay" parts 1 and 2 (the finale comes out this November - check out the trailer above) has been spotted filming in Midtown and hanging out in the Buckhead Atlanta shopping district.

"Passengers" is a sci-fi drama about people being transported in cryogenic form to a distant planet. One of the folks aboard accidentally thaws out too soon and chooses someone else to warm up, too, to avoid growing old alone.
