Jurassic World- First Clip
One of my most anticipated films of this year is Jurassic World. The first film has to be in my top 20 of all-time favorite movies and I am a big fan of Chris Pratt between Guardians of the Galaxy and the recently concluded show Parks and Recreation. I have very little doubts about this movie, but one of them is Pratt. When everyone said that Guardians was going to get him all the roles, I said no. In Guardians, Pratt pretty much played a version of himself-- a very similar character to his Andy Dwyer character on Parks and Rec. I said that if Jurassic World came out and Pratt proved he could play someone different from just the version of himself, then he'd blow up as a huge star.
Today, the first clip from the movie came out, and we get a better sense of how Pratt will be playing this role. While his character is still a bit goofy like his other ones were, there's a (albeit, subtle) darkness to his character. He can be funny but he knows when to be serious, which is a restraint Pratt's other characters haven't really had. I found Bryce Dallas Howard's acting in this scene to be a bit wooden, but hopefully she's better when you see the full movie.
While Chris Pratt's role in this movie may have a lot of the lovable "Prattisms" that we know him for, I think he will show us a different side that could open up a lot of new opportunities for him, maybe even Indiana Jones?
