Amy Poehler Chris Pratt Pixar

Jurassic World has topped the US box office for the second time this weekend, taking a massive $102 million. The dinosaur action flick starring Chris Pratt managed to beat Pixar’s latest offering Inside Out in a very tight race, which saw the animation take $91 million in it's opening weekend. 

Jurassic WorldJurassic World is still on top of the US box office.

But while Inside Out might not have managed to take the top spot, it did give Pixar the second-highest opening weekend in the studio’s history. "Inside Out would have been number one in any other weekend," said Phil Contrino, vice president of BoxOffice.com. "At the end of the day, it doesn't matter. Being number one is overrated.”

Chris Pratt: "Hollywood Needs To Objectify Men More"


Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt says the key towards gender equality in Hollywood is to make movies that objectify men more. The Jurassic World actor - now one of the most in-demand stars in the world - said his physique and build had certainly helped him to land major roles.

"Never in a calculated way, but in hindsight, yeah," he said when asked if his looks won him roles in Hollywood, "It was a huge part of how my career has shifted is based on the way that I look, on the way that I've shaped my body to look."

Chris Pratt Will Not Film Abroad


Chris Pratt Anna Faris

Chris Pratt has revealed that he now has a clause in his contract that states he won’t shoot any of his movies abroad. This isn’t because he has a fear of flying or anything like that – he’s just a big softie, and wants to be close to his young family.

The Jurassic World actor and all-round flavour of the year told Entertainment Weekly Radio: “I don't wanna go across the Atlantic Ocean because it's just too far to go that way, and so far people have been accommodating.”

'Jurassic World' Success Confirms Hollywood's Starving Us Of Our Favourite Creatures


Chris Pratt Steven Spielberg

The astronomical success of 'Jurassic World' just proves that dinosaurs aren't explored enough in film these days. Sure, people may be desensitised to the terror of the prehistoric monsters - at least, more so than they were in 1993 upon the arrival of 'Jurassic Park' - but this extraordinary re-telling has broken box office records.

Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins in Jurassic WorldYep, kids are definitely not bored of dinosaurs

It has its criticisms and, of course, it doesn't quite have the same effect on audiences as its original predecessor, but 'Jurassic World' has successfully managed to cast some much-needed cinematic nostalgia upon the lovers of the Steven Spielberg classic, so much so that its opening has become the highest-grossing debut of all time.

"Jurassic World" Demolishes Records And Devours The Competition At The Box Office

We all knew it would be big. Bring back the Jurassic Park franchise after a gap of 14 years, add Chris Pratt and a fearsome new dinosaur into the mix, and push the Steven Spielberg connection (albeit as executive producer), and Universal has undoubtedly got a hit on its hands.

'Jurassic World' Was A Challenge For Bryce Dallas Howard


Bryce Dallas Howard Chris Pratt

Turning into an action movie star was a new thing for Bryce Dallas Howard, the actress better known for comedy-dramas like 'The Help' and '50/50'. But in 'Jurassic World' she dives right into the fray, all while wearing a white business outfit and high-heels.

Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt in 'Jurassic World'Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt in 'Jurassic World'

To prepare for her role as park executive Claire, Howard trained with UFC champion Pete Williams, who was also her on-set driver. "He was so helpful," she says, "because as someone who is a professional athlete, he really knew how to take care of your body. And I was like, 'Hey man! I've got to do all this heel running, can you give me some tricks?' He was awesome, and really helped me."

'Jurassic World' Gives Chris Pratt Another Franchise


Chris Pratt

When filmmaker Colin Trevorrow cast Chris Pratt as the lead in 'Jurassic World', he had his doubts. At the time, Pratt was known only as that loveable goofball from 'Parks and Recreation'. "I really love improvisational comedic actors," Trevorrow says, "and you see them in my films again and again - Jake Johnson, Aubrey Plaza, Mark Duplass. So I just wanted to make sure that I wasn't bringing him in because that was a comfort zone for me. Ultimately we found something that certainly wasn't really improvisational and it isn't really that comedic. We found a real character."

Chris Pratt stars in 'Jurassic World'Chris Pratt stars in 'Jurassic World'

Before filming 'Jurassic World', Pratt proved his action blockbuster chops in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'. His new challenge was to play an animal trainer who has a relationship with his dinosaurs. "That's a tough thing to accomplish, especially when a dinosaur is an animated character," Pratt says. "So I did some research. I got to hang out with some pretty awesome animal trainers. There was one guy who trains vicious animals like bears, tigers and lions. I went to his ranch, spent the day seeing him interact with these animals, and this was a big part of the posture that I adopted. I just wanted this to be real, to create an organic relationship between man and beast that is going to strike some emotional chord in people."

Jurassic World Review

Very Good

With studios afraid of anything new or original, it's not surprising that the dinosaurs are back on-screen nearly 15 years after the rather disappointing Jurassic Park III. The good news is that this film has a clever script and solid characters to go along with the first-rate digital work. So even if the effects kind of take over the movie in the final act, it's still a great ride.

The massive island resort Jurassic World has been running safely for a decade off the Costa Rica coast, so it needs ever-scarier attractions to bring in visitors. The owner Masrani (Irrfan Khan) has been instructing his top scientist (BD Wong) to genetically engineer a bigger, scarier species, and he's come up with a beast called Indominus rex. Park manager Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) has her doubts, but her velociraptor trainer Owen (Chris Pratt) is downright furious when he finds out. Sure enough, just as Claire's nephews (Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson) arrive for a visit, the I-rex escapes and threatens the 20,000 visitors on the island.

The screenplay sets everything up in fine disaster movie style, with quickly explained back-stories to add some emotional undercurrents to the big-scale chaos. There's also, of course, a requisite villain in the form of the meathead Hoskins (Vincent D'Onofrio), who thinks dinosaurs could be used by the military and welcomes this catastrophe as a chance to prove his point. Thankfully, the cast dives in with gusto, adding hilarious personality touches to every scene. Pratt is terrific as the swashbuckling action-man, nicely set against the feisty Howard, who trumps him by doing all her action scenes in heels. Simpkins and Robinson have a lively adventure all their own that adds to the film's overall appeal. And there are superb side roles for the talented likes of Omar Sy, Judy Greer and Jake Johnson that add both humour and emotion.

'Jurassic World' Star Chris Pratt Contemplates Whether Or Not Kids Still Love Dinosaurs


Chris Pratt

Has the dinosaur become boring? That's what Chris Pratt questions on contemplating the themes of his new movie 'Jurassic World'. Yes, the original 'Jurassic Park' remains a classic, but the question is whether kids today are still both terrified and enchanted by these prehistoric creatures.

Chris Pratt in 'Jurassic World'Chris Pratt admits he'd love to see a real life Mosasaur

To the younger generation who are used to incredible computer graphics and enhanced horror on their screens, 'Jurassic Park' with its 90s fear factor and largely unconvincing animatronics (compared to what we have these days) may seem laughably unexciting - even if the parents still jump in terror at the scary bits. 'Jurassic World' is a brave attempt to re-capture that exhilarating cinematic experience.

Chris Pratt - Jurassic World Interview


Chris Pratt talks about Jurrasic World

'Jurassic World' star Chris Pratt talks about the themes explored in the new dinosaur movie, compared with what we saw in the original 1993 movie 'Jurassic Park'. Plus he reveals exactly which dinosaur he'd want to go and see first at the legendary theme park.
Colin Trevorrow takes over Steven Spielberg's original role as director in the film, which also co-stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Omar Sy among others. The movie sees the actual park on Isla Nublar officially open for business, but after a smooth ten years, they need something new to grip their visitors once again. Unfortunately, this turns out to be a major mistake.

Question: Was 'Jurassic World' Worth The Wait?

Five Reasons Why 2015 Is The Year Of The Blockbuster


Chris Pratt Daniel Craig Harrison Ford

Cast your mind back to 2014, a year in which US box-office takings fell by 5% compared to the previous year. There were many memorable films, from Oscar winners like Birdman to highly anticipated adventures like Interstellar

Interstellar screenInterstellar's $673million tally wasn't out of this world

But what 2014 lacked was a consistent stream of killer blockbuster titles. Sure, there was Transformers: Age of Extinction - 2014's biggest film - and The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the year's next highest-grossing movie. And superhero fans were well-catered for, with Guardians of the Galaxy topping a list that included Captain America, X-Men and Spider-Man

It feels like almost every week Chris Pratt does something new that makes us fall in love with him even more. But this week’s edition of ‘reasons to love Chris Pratt’ even managed to throw us for a loop, as we never thought we’d be praising the Jurassic World star for his spot on Essex accent!

Chris Pratt Frets Over Scary 'Jurassic World' Motorcycle Stunt


Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt may be used to stunt work by now, following superhero epic 'Guardians of the Galaxy', but that apparently didn't make him any less nervous when it came to performing yet more stunts on the set of the new 'Jurassic World' movie.

Chris Pratt in 'Jurassic World'Chris Pratt in 'Jurassic World'

Pratt plays Owen Grady in the movie; a motorcycle enthusiast and Velociraptor trainer; so of course, this meant he had one of the most stunt-heavy roles in the whole film. The only problem was, Pratt had serious reservations about some of the activity he had to shoot while astride a Triumph bike, and vowed to never take up riding away from his professional life.

Jurassic World - Motorcycle and Stunt Featurettes


Years after the horrific failure of John Hammond's Jurassic Park project, and him later taking the blame for the "incident" in San Diego, InGen has continued its research into the genetic creation of prehistoric creatures. InGen has succeeded in many of the places where Hammond failed, however, as Jurassic World opened to smash success. After years of success, though, visitors are starting to dwindle at the park, leading to the creation of a new genetically engineered dinosaur. This one is smarter, faster, and more dangerous than any of the previous creatures, but when it breaks out of its cage, the island is faced with a threat that the world has never seen before.

He’s arguably the most in-demand actor in the world right now, but Chris Pratt remembers a time when he wasn’t so recognisable and when other actors would flirt with his wife Anna Faris – right in front of him!

When John Hammond first created InGen and prepared Jurassic Park, it was a colossal failure. When Jurassic World was later opened for the public, a lot had been learnt from Hammond's mistakes, and the new amusement park opened without any problems. But when visitors began to dwindle, something drastic had to be done. Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), the park operations manager has organised to have a hybrid dinosaur created, and needs the dependable and knowledgeable Velociraptor trainer Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) to ensure the enclosure is safe for the new dinosaur. But when it eats its twin, and Grady arrives to inspect it, the Indominus rex breaks free, bringing havoc and destruction in its wake.

Due to his successful handling of the animals, she believes that he is the perfect person to check the new enclosure, and ensure that it is up to standard. But when someone has dedicated their life to earning the respect of the raptors, they have no idea what needs to be done with the Indominus rex. No one does.

All thanks to a Super Bowl bet made in February, this Saturday 7th March the kids at Seattle Children’s Hospital were lucky enough to meet Captain America in the flesh.

It was the pair’s second hospital visit after they placed a bet on which of their teams would win the Super Bowl in February. If Pratt’s team (the Seattle Seahawks) won, Evans had agreed to visit the Seattle Children’s Hospital dressed as Captain America, while if Evans’ team (the New England Patriots) were successful, Pratt had promised to visit Christopher’s Haven, in Boston, as his Guardians of the Galaxy character, Star-Lord. Despite the win by Evans and the New England Patriots, the two men kept up both ends of their bargain and visited children at both hospitals dressed as their superhero counterparts.
