Anna Kendrick’s involvement makes me even more interested in the film. Since her Oscar-nominated performance in Up in the air I’m a huge fan of the actress. I’m even one of the five people who did last year Table 19 seen with her in the cinema. Kendrick is best known for her comedic roles in films such as Pitch perfect or Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. She drew other pages in Paul Feig’s thriller Just a little favor at Blake Lively’s side. The film is currently running in our cinemas. With Stowaway she ventures into the science fiction genre for the first time.
