The metallic model of a skyscraper that Jim builds for Aurora is the Chrysler building in New York City, which was completed in 1930. Earlier in the movie while Jim is watching her profile video, Aurora says, "Yeah, I'll miss New York city. Give me a cup of coffee and a view of the Chrysler Building, and I can write all day."

Aurora (and therefore the crew, possibly others) was supposed to return to Earth after spending a year at the colony. That would be impossible since a basic premise of the movie is that there is no way to place passengers back in stasis after they are awake.
Jim mentions the procedures they went trough before leaving Earth, there are possibly similar -hibernation centers on Homestead II. See more »
"Passengers" offers more than the reviews are giving credit!
I read many of the reviews too, and while I always say that every movie will treat everyone in a different way, I am a little surprised by the amount of people who didn't enjoy it! I thought this movie was beautiful!
If you want a movie with conflict, space exploration, romance, and sci-fi...this movie is for you. While it's not loaded with 'blow em up' action, the movie is filled with tension and does have some great action scenes. The best aspect of the movie (to me) is that the filmmakers were very successful at turning a situation so incredible into something simple and human.
I walked away from this movie not wanting it to end. Screw the bad reviews, see it for yourself and maybe you'll see what I saw!
