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.
