New Look at Chris Pratt in ‘Jurassic World’

Chris Pratt Jurassic World

Comic-Con-goers were left disappointed at the lack of “Jurassic World” news coming out of the convention last weekend so Colin Trevorrow is offering compensation.

The director tweeted a new photo of Chris Pratt as park keeper Owen in “Jurassic World” on the heels of the actor’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” opening. The image offers a close shot of Pratt’s mustachioed face. There are no dinosaurs, no supporting cast members, no context in the background.

Pratt, who’s best known for TV work on “Parks & Recreation,” is on a career high thanks to his “Guardians” starring role as the space crusader Star Lord, the leader of a rag-tag team of unexpected heroes. His star power can only rise higher next summer with the release of “Jurassic World.”

The dino reboot, which also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Vincent D’Onofrio and Judy Greer, is set over 20 years after the events of “Jurassic Park.” Legendary and Universal are co-financing the tentpole.

The pic hits theaters on June 12, 2015.

    Chis is cool in Jurassic World and I love the raptor. I would love if he could join wordpress so I could follow him. When I get dogs I’ll name them after the raptors (Blue, Delta, Echo, and Charle) and I’ll be the alpha like him.

    If it takes place twenty years after the events of the first film, how does that make it a reboot?

  3. vincent says:

    I hope jurassic world will be good. hope it’ll not be so predictable since its somewhat similar plot of the first one (theme park that turns deadly). but congrats to Pratt.
    sad Parks & Rec is ending.

    He needs to be the next Indiana Jones!

    To Chris Pratt’s manager, agent, publicist, etc. Chris needs to keep his face leaned out or he loses his boyish attractiveness. Also, Chris needs to watch his rising hair line. And for Chris’ personal trainer, Chris needs to work his upper chest more. Otherwise, congrats for all his hard work, great new look, and recent success and good luck, Chris. Keep living healthy!

  6. If Disney decides to make sequel/prequels to their newly acquire Indiana Jones property and Ford decides he’s done worth fedora Pratt is the only acceptable replacement right now. He’d have to tweak his normal personal but at the very least he’d make a great Jones III.

  7. PETER says:

    Nice that a new actor, Chris Pratt, is making it big. The industry needs to spread the millions around, right?

  8. JparkPatron says:

    If it is a continuation of the previous films, it is not a reboot.

    Hey anybody remember a guy named Tom Cruise? Hello,out there…Anybody?

  10. Chris Pratt is in it. That’s all I need to hear. I’m going to see it regardless of what it’s about.

    Here’s hoping they can refurbish the Jurassic franchise, which has sucked since the original movie. What’s in the future, an intelligent velociraptor as a character?

    • Ian Hirst says:

      2 sucked but 3 was pretty good. It had quite a good story and Sam Neill.

    • anon says:

      You know… Your virtually the only person who has this opinion.

      • Disarraygun says:

        Wait. What? The Nerdrage said the series has sucked SINCE the first film (i.e. that film was a high point in the series and possibly very good). Reading comprehension, people. It’s a thing.

      • Dope says:

        Well said anon. Only an individual with no sense of wonder could say something like that about the first jurassic park; which is arguably one of the greatest films ever made. Shame on you nerdrage. I hope a pack of compy’s gets you in ur sleep.
