We still love dinosaurs more than zombies and robots - here's the proof!
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.
Yep, 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.
Chris Pratt will be back for more 'Jurassic World' movies.
Chris Pratt has confirmed that he will be back for a Jurassic World sequel, joking that Universal Studios have him locked down to "38 movies". Jurassic World broke box-office records this weekend, taking over $500 million worldwide on the back of glittering reviews.

"I am. They have me for I think 38 movies or something," Pratt told Entertainment Weekly when asked whether he would be back for another Jurassic movie.

The dino-themed movie is shattering records left and right this weekend.
Even before Jurassic Park dropped, we all knew it would be big. But just how big? The movie has surpassed all estimates and reached $511 million worldwide over its first three days in theatres. This makes the fourth Jurassic Park franchise movie the biggest global opener of all time, among other achievements.

It also devoured a number of domestic box office records with a $204.6 million take, the Rentrak media-measurement company estimated on Sunday. Internationally, the film's ticket sales reached more than $307 million, according to The Telegraph.
'Jurassic World' has knocked it out of the park, passing the $200million mark in its opening weekend in America.
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.
Chris Pratt: now one of Hollywood's most bankable stars
But it's not until after Jurassic World's opening weekend that anyone knew quite how big it would be. The film has debuted in the US with a whopping $204.6million, doubling the studio's original weekend estimate, Box Office Mojo reports.

The long-awaited fourth film in the 'Jurassic Park' franchise is smashing expectations at the US box office.

Being so well known for her comedy-dramas, Bryce Dallas Howard was faced with a whole new challenge when she took on 'Jurassic World'
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'
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."
Continue reading: 'Jurassic World' Was A Challenge For Bryce Dallas Howard
Starting off as the loveable goof-ball in 'Parks and Recreation', Chris Pratt has gone onto take on two huge franchises - one in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the other being the revamped 'Jurassic Park' series.
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'
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."
Continue reading: 'Jurassic World' Gives Chris Pratt Another Franchise
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.

He ponders if children want creatures with bigger teeth.
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 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.
'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.
'Jurassic World' is good. No need to worry.
Jurassic World has scored strong reviews and will look to do big business over the coming weeks
In the fourth instalment of the megabucks franchise, Visitors at the now 'Jurassic World theme park' run for their lives when the genetically engineered Indominus Rex and other dinosaurs go on a rampage. Sounds fun huh? Well, it is.

We're nearly halfway through a great year for big-budget movies and the best is yet to come.
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'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.

If you close your eyes when listening to Chris Pratt you’ll think you’re in the Sugar Hut.
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!
Who knew? Chris Pratt does a pretty spot on Essex accent.
Appearing on BBC Two’s ‘The Graham Norton Show’ on Friday night, Pratt revealed a hidden talent that would be sure to leave even Joey Essex gobsmacked. Sitting next to Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law and comedian John Bishop, the hunky American actor explained he’d been watching ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ while filming in the UK.
The actor vows never to own a bike of his own.
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'
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.

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.
'Jurassic World' is about to hit.
Chris Pratt has apologized in advance for his upcoming Jurassic World press tour, calling himself "dumb" and warning that his comments might be "tasteless". Pratt, 35, wrote a message to fans on his Facebook page.
Chris Pratt is ready for his Jurassic World press tour
Pratt wrote, "I want to make a heartfelt apology for whatever it is I end up accidentally saying during the forthcoming ?#?JurassicWorld? press tour. I hope you understand it was never my intention to offend anyone and I am truly sorry. I swear. I'm the nicest guy in the world. And I fully regret what I (accidentally will have) said in (the upcoming foreign and domestic) interview(s)."

It probably won't hold up in court.
Chris Pratt is really working his perfect gentleman image. He also somehow manages to come off as an adorable goof at the same time. Case in point: his apology, in advance, for any remarks made during the Jurassic World press tour.
Chris Pratt: national treasure.
He doesn’t yet know what he might say in the head of the moment, but Pratt just wanted to cover his back. The actor penned a hilarious sorry letter as he embarks on a worldwide tour to promote the upcoming film.
The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star remembers when his wife was more famous than him, and when other actors would ignore him and chat her up.
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!
35 year old Pratt, the forthcoming star of blockbuster Jurassic World, revealed in a new interview with GQ magazine that he would get annoyed when famous actors would disrespect him in this way. “I've had those moments, where I was like the guy holding the purse at events and people just look right through me. And, you know, actors come up and just blatantly hit on my wife in front of me and don't even look at me. I'm like, ‘What the f***, dude?’”
Anna Faris and Chris Pratt
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.

Chris Pratt raved about his wife, Anna Faris, in a recent Reddit AMA. Pratt described his wife as "great", "patient and understanding" and "kind and genuine".
Chris Pratt couldn't help but tell the world how wonderful his relationship with his wife, actress Anna Faris, is and said they "are meant to be together". The couple have been together since 2007 and married two years later. Pratt was being questioned by fans on Reddit when he was asked how he met Faris and what she is like as a wife and mother - the couple have a son together, Jack, born in 2012.
Chris Pratt raved about his wife, Anna Faris, in a recent AMA.
The park is officially open! Twenty two years after the disastrous attempt to bread dinosaurs for an amusement park, another attempt was made and saw great success. The problem is, due to dwindling visitors, the management have had to try something new with the exhibits. Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), the park operations manager, heads out to speak to Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), the velociraptor trainer. 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.

The superhero duo made a special appearance as the result of a Super Bowl bet.
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. Chris Evans was accompanied by fellow superhero Chris Pratt, who is the star of another highly successful movie, Guardians of the Galaxy.

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.

Seahawks fan Pratt and Patriots supporter Evans had been building up a friendly rivalry over social media after their teams made it to the Superbowl final.

The Super Bowl is possibly the most anticipated and well-known sporting event of every year; a game of American Football, set to decide the National Football League champion team for that season. On 1st February 2014, the New England Patriots fought the Seattle Seahawks for the title, in a game that saw Quarterback Tom Brady win his fourth Super Bowl and third Super Bowl MVP award.

It's finally here! A new dinosaur movie is going to come crashing into a cinema near you by Summer 2015, but you can now get a glimpse of what's to come with the exhilarating first trailer for 'Jurassic World'.
Chris Pratt braves the dinos in 'Jurassic World'
Chris Pratt has quickly become one of the most talked about Hollywood actors of the moment, after his spectacular appearances in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and 'The Lego Movie' - and it doesn't look like his popularity is going to be on the wane for quite a while if the first look of 'Jurassic World' is anything to go by. We're already praying he doesn't get eaten.
Taking into account the lessons learnt on the islands Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna, the creators of Jurassic Park have created a new dinosaur amusement park named Jurassic Park. Millions flock to the island resort to see the prehistoric animals in their enclosures, but to keep up with demand for new and interesting attractions, the scientists behind the park have created their first hybrid - a unique dinosaur which never originally existed. But after creating a fantastic creature from the best parts of other dinosaurs, the highly intelligent creature escapes - jeopardising the lives of every person on the island.

However, there was little to beat and ticket sales were down 23 per cent on the same weekend last year. With the major studios retiring away to prepare their major fall realises, there were no new entries in the Top 10, with the highest ranking newbie - musical drama The Identical - taking 11th place.

Basically, Marvel is out to rule the world.
After much love from critics and fans alike, Guardians of the Galaxy has reached a new box office milestone. Marvel's space opera is now the top grossing movie of 2014 - as if there was ever any doubt. Entertainment Weekly broke the news on Friday that Guardians had topped Captain America: The Winter Soldier for the 2014 throne. And in case you were wondering, yes, it definitely deserves the title.
Apparently, Guardians of the Galaxy isn't only the best Marvel flick, it's also the most profitable.
Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is the biggest movie of the year, but can 'Interstellar' change that?
Marvel's giant summer blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy is officially the biggest movie of the year so far after it took $16.3 million over the Labor Day weekend to take its overall domestic taking to $274.6 million. Guardians has now surpassed Captain America: Winter Soldier as the highest-grossed movie of 2014.

Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction - released in June in the U.S - remains top of the worldwide list with over $1 billion in sales. Guardians has earned $547.7 million around the globe.
Seriously, who has not seen ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ yet?
It’s official, Guardians of the Galaxy is the movie of the summer and it could end up becoming the movie of the year, if it continues it’s mega box office run. Now in its fifth week at theatres, the ‘little comic book movie’ is showing no signs of loosing steam as it continues to edge closer to the $300million mark at the US box office. The film, which stars Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista is looking to become the first movie of 2014 to hit $300million milestone at the domestic box office.

Forbes estimates that over Labour day weekend the movie should take in around $18 million, $14 million of which should be accumulated between Friday and Sunday. But before the weekend is over the movie will have surpassed the year’s other hit, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which also happens to come from Marvel studios.
"Turtles" rule this week, but many are still hooked on "Guardians of the Galaxy"
With the weekend almost over (sigh) it’s time for a box office report. Unsurprisingly for the middle of August, this one features a whole lot of guns, explosions and testosterone galore. Let’s start with Expendables 3, which despite ample promotion and a whole line-up of established Hollywood tough guys, didn’t really impress in terms of ticket sales.
Nope. Just no.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, on the other hand, once again dominated the chart, despite boasting a similarly mindless, but well-muscled script. The franchise starter made around $28.4 million, according to early estimates from Rentrak, via USA Today.
Chris Pratt almost turned his back on 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.
Chris Pratt, the American actor now considered one of the most in-demand star in Hollywood, has revealed that he initially turned down the opportunity to audition for Guardians of the Galaxy - Marvel's megahit that is likely to spawn a billion dollar franchise.

Pratt initially passed on the lead in Guardians, fearing it would go the same way as his failed attempt to star in G.I Joe a couple of years earlier.

There's no stopping the Guardians of the Galaxy from here.
After storming the global box office last week with a take of more than $200 million and counting (it had the biggest August opening in US history), Guardians of the Galaxy fans immediately started asking what's next for these new Marvel heroes. Since it's set in space, crossover possibilities with the Avengers aren't obvious (except perhaps Thor), so the filmmakers have a lot of leeway as they move forward.
Guardians of the Galaxy could prove to be a mega-franchise
Director-cowriter James Gunn will be back for the sequel, but it's producer Kevin Feige who coordinates the all of the films set in the Marvel universe (except Sony's Spider-man and Fox's X-men franchises). Feige admits that the biggest question for the Guardians moving forward centres on Chris Pratt's Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord. Namely: who is his father? The film tantalisingly teases this question at the very end, and Feige has admitted that the answer "would certainly be part of a next Guardians adventure".
