After the trailer release of this movie it became one of this year's most anticipated movies, but some people were...
The bar's art deco design - a vast departure from the futuristic layout everywhere else on the ship - was an aesthetic choice based on a classic New York bar, intended to bring a feeling of familiarity to the film's audience.
Good morning, James. How are you feeling?
Jim Preston: Wait. What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's perfectly normal to feel confused. You just spent 120 years in suspended animation.
Jim Preston: What?
Wake-up Hologram: It's okay, James.
Jim Preston: It's Jim.
Wake-up Hologram: Jim.
From the beginning of the movie we see the main engine of the ship is burning, thus accelerating the ship. At a 1G acceleration you would reach close to the speed of light within one year. At the start of the movie the ship has already traveled for 30 years, so even at a fraction of a 1G acceleration the ship would have reached close to the speed of light, not 50% as later stated in the movie. But the ion drive shown is not necessarily capable of 1G acceleration. An ion drive's force is dependent on the number of ions in space at that particular location, so it changes. And it would take a drive unit many times the area shown to accelerate a ship that massive at 1G.
