Move over Chris Hemsworth and Eddie Redmayne, there’s a new Movie Man of the Year! Chris Pratt has clearly made a name for himself as the top leading man of Hollywood that everyone wants! Just look at his current and upcoming projects!
The Magnificent Seven
Chris Pratt as a cowboy? Who can resist! Just released on September 23rd, this live-action western is a hit! On its opening weekend, The Magnificent Seven earned $35 million! It is definitely one of the biggest openings for a western movie in a very, very long time. If you don’t know already, the movie is about seven gunmen who come together in the old west to save a poor village against savage thieves. Get caught up with the trailer!
I mean seriously, you can’t go wrong with this All-Star cast of Chris Pratt, Ethan Hawke , Denzel Washington and Vincent D’Onofrio! Chris Pratt was already nominated for the 2016 Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Actor: AnTEENcipated. Imagine what will happen once the Oscars comes around!
Coming to theatres December 21st, everyone already knows Passengers will be a hit, especially with Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence playing the leading roles. Chris said himself that, “I’m really excited for people to see it. It was maybe the best script I had ever read. John Spaihts wrote the script, and it was just so great.”
If Chris Pratt was this impressed by the script, I can’t imagine how amazing this film is going to be! The first trailer for this film was only released on September 20th and it already has 11.5 Million YouTube views! Watch it below!
As seen in the trailer, the film is about Aurora Lane (Jennifer Lawrence) and James Preston (Chris Pratt) who are accidentally awakened 90 years too early on the space ship Avalon. Was it really an accident? Sadly, until December to find out!
Besides the trailer, the movie has been getting a ton of buzz on Twitter! From Sept. 19th – Sept. 25th, it was the top tweeted trailer topping Bad Santa 2, Fist Fight, and Smurfs: The Lost Village. With Hollywood’s leading man and lady in this movie, it’s a definite must-see!
This year alone, he has announced that he will be in three MAJOR films in the coming years- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled Jurassic World Sequel. Everyone can’t wait for the new GOTG movie, as the first one was purely AMAZING! Audiences finally get to see Star-Lord’s father, the planet Ego played by Kurt Russell. How a planet is Star-Lord’s father I am not quite sure, but am very interested to find out!
With some details released about Avengers: Infinity War, it looks like it’s going to be totally action packed. Star-Lord, Scarlet Witch, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Spider-Man, and Captain Marvel have all been rumored to be appearing- along with many others as well. This movie seems like it’s going to have the whole Marvel universe in it!
The news on the Jurassic World sequel in the works was just released. No news yet on a plotline or casting. Just to jog your memory on how awesome Chris Pratt was in Jurassic World, just watch this clip!
Clearly with Chris Pratt’s current and future movies, he is the 2016 Movie Man of the Year!!!
