In the Passengers movie, Earth is positioned/presented as an "overpriced" planet:
Earth is a PROSPEROUS planet, the cradle of civilization.
But for many, it's also overpopulated, OVERPRICED, overrated.
Travelling to Avalon is also expensive, and only for riches and technical persons. There is no sign of migrants...
- Why did the creators decide to make the Earth an overpriced planet?
- Did they base this decision on any theoretical background?
