Drugged teenagers are on a space mission to save the human race — unlike the many others who just come to South Florida for spring break — and while sending spring breakers into space isn’t an option, yet, checking out “Voyagers” sure is.
In space, nobody can feel a thing.
Tye Sheridan (as Christopher): “It’s medication, to decrease pleasure.”
In “Voyagers,” Earth is dying, so young adults are sent to repopulate another world to save our species. Typical college admissions stuff.
Colin Farrell (as Richard): “This is our best chance to find a habitable planet.”
The only problem is, the crew realizes the medication they’re taking makes them emotionless, and once they stop…
Tye Sheridan: “They start to rebel, or some of them do, at least, and so, I think that’s really where the movie starts to go off the rails.”
Tye Sheridan and Lily-Rose Depp star with Colin Farrell in the sci-fi thriller, which turns into “Lord of the Flies” in space.
Tye Sheridan (as Christopher): “They’re drugging us.”
Colin Farrell (as Richard): “To prevent exactly this kind of thing from happening.”
Colin, who joined deco via spaceship, is really the only grown-up on the mission.
Colin Farell: “The part that I had is, quite obviously on the page, was a father figure and somebody who was there to kind of corral and guide and care for and monitor these children.”
But it’s ultimately Tye and Lily-Rose who take charge.
Lily-Rose, who is Johnny Depp’s daughter, told Deco that’s not always her style.
Lily-Rose Depp: “I think that it depends on the group of friends. I have many different groups of friends.”
Check out the humblebrag from Lily-Rose.
Lily-Rose Depp: “It depends on what other personalities are at play in that moment, but I can definitely be both. I’m a Gemini, so I can definitely be like a leader or like a go-with-the-flow kinda girl.”
The stakes of the mission in “Voyagers” make her a little uneasy about any future space travel.
Lily-Rose Depp: “I don’t know if right here, right now, I’d be ready to pick up and go. I’d like to say that I was that adventerous. There’s a lot that I’m leaving behind if I’m picking up and going right now, so I think that I’m thinking about all of those things before I make that decision.”
Character in “Voyagers”: “I’m scared.”
Character in “Voyagers”: “There’s nothing to be scared of.”
