After the trailer release of this movie it became one of this year's most anticipated movies, but some people were...
This is not Michael Sheen's first time playing a "not quite human" proprietor of a bar - having also played one as Castor in "TRON: Legacy".
I laughed at a man with no pants, until I realized I have no legs.
In the film, the vessel is traveling at "half the speed of light", which is 93,000 "miles per second". At the beginning of the film, you see the vessel encounter a small debris/asteroid field, and the ship uses its "energy shield" to protect itself from damage. The speed portrayed in the film shows the ship hitting the debris at a much slower speed, possibly less than 1 mile-per-second. If the ship were actually traveling at 93,000 miles per second, any encounter with a debris field would have been instantly catastrophic, energy shield or not. There is simply no way an energy shield, as portrayed in the film, would have the time to destroy anything at that speed. Small dust-sized particles, perhaps, but not large asteroids as shown in the film. However, as speed is relative, the ship and debris can be considered to be traveling in the same direction, with (in this example), 1mph of overtake speed on the part of the ship. This would effectively be the same as a stationary object being hit by an object moving at 1mph.
