Chris Pratt says farewell to the MCU: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is “a true masterpiece”

The famous actor who just premiered his own series on Prime Video shares some emotional statements about his farewell as Star-Lord in Marvel.

Chris Pratt, the famous actor who has played Star-Lord in the MCU over the last decade, has given an interview to Men’s Health in which he discussed his career at Marvel Studios and talked about his latest and upcoming appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, a film he describes as a “true masterpiece”. Of course, before that, we will be able to see the actor as part of the Guardians of the Galaxy in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder and the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas special scheduled for later this year.

Taking advantage of the fact that it was a fitness magazine, the actor compared his career to that of a well-known American football player: “You accept that this is going to end and you want to assimilate it. You can only do that by living in the present, so that’s what I do. The other day, Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback, got traded to Denver. He’s been with Seattle for about ten years. Which has been about the duration of this. The emotion around the last ten years sort of coming to an end. It’s hitting me in moments like that,” the actor comments.

He also says he doesn’t know what’s coming next in his career, although he admits that his time at Marvel is coming to an end: “I don’t actually know what’s gonna come next. You asked whether or not I’m cognizantly, intentionally turning a page. The page is turning. Whether I want to or not. Because the franchises are over.”

That said, the actor, in another interview with Digital Spy, says he is very proud of James Gunn and the entire team, calling the closing of the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy a true masterpiece: “I can say with utter confidence that he’s made a true masterpiece, and I just cannot wait for people to see it. It’s James Gunn. He did all three movies, which is really rare and really special in the world of big box-office trilogies,” Pratt concludes.

Chris Pratt’s hilarious retirement party for Jimmy Kimmel

On Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday, Chris Pratt stopped by and threw Kimmel a surprise retirement party, surprising because Kimmel is not retiring. While it was clearly a bit, it was a lot of fun. Pratt had Guillermo bring out a cake, then told Kimmel, “Now that you won’t be on TV anymore, you can have as much of that cake as you want.” Pratt went on to show the highlights of Kimmel’s 18 plus years on air, which were all Pratt.

When Kimmel explained to Pratt that he wasn’t retiring, but simply taking the rest of the summer off, Pratt replied, “Oh, you’re staying on? Why?”Then came the balloons, the banner and…Kenny G, but his time on the show was short-lived. After Kenny G asked Pratt for a picture because his kids “love Star Wars,” Pratt looked at Guillermo and said, “Giullermo, get Kenny G the f**k out of here.”

Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on ABC.

Chris Pratt likely to sign a big Netflix deal

American actor-comedian Chris Pratt is currently enjoying the heyday of his acting career so Netflix thought of taking some benefit out of it by offering him some special bargain. 

The great Netflix deal for the 41-year-old most bankable star in Hollywood includes five movies and three television shows, according to the media rumours. The actor may wait for the success of his upcoming movie The Tomorrow War before he signs the deal.

The science-fiction blockbuster The Tomorrow War is going to set the tone for the Netflix deal. In the movie, the time travellers are seen landing on the planet to tell that humanity is losing the war against an alien species. The trailer of the Chris Pratt-starrer looks fabulous and speaks volumes that the movie is set to earn big bucks at the box office. The actor is also sure of its immense success. 

Chris Pratt catapulted to fame through his breakout role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The actor has a very tight schedule for the foreseeable future as he has several films being premiered this year and in 2021.   It is yet to be seen if Chris Pratt inks the massive Netflix contract. If he gets the deal, he will be required to develop content under his Indivisible Productions banner.

Chris Pratt Sci-Fi Movie ‘The Tomorrow War’ Sets Summer Release On Amazon

We first told you that Skydance sold the Chris Pratt sci-fi film The Tomorrow War to Amazon Studios for $200M, and now that deal has closed with the streamer setting a July 2 drop date in 240 countries and territories. Tomorrow War‘s most recent theatrical release date was July 23. At one point before the pandemic, the movie was scheduled to release at Christmas last year.

In The Tomorrow War, written by Zach Dean, the world is stunned when a group of time travelers arrive from the year 2051 to deliver an urgent message: 30 years in the future mankind is losing a global war against a deadly alien species. The only hope for survival is for soldiers and civilians from the present to be transported to the future and join the fight. Among those recruited is high school teacher and family man Dan Forester (Pratt). Determined to save the world for his young daughter, Dan teams up with a brilliant scientist (Yvonne Strahovski) and his estranged father (J.K. Simmons) in a desperate quest to rewrite the fate of the planet.

The Tomorrow War will be a global event that will surprise and delight our customers around the world,” said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. “Director Chris McKay has brilliantly crafted this unique, action-packed sci-fi escape that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats and tug on their heart strings with its father-daughter storyline. We couldn’t be happier to continue our relationship with Chris Pratt—who brings such dynamic star power to the film—along with David Ellison and the Skydance team, as we share this exciting film with fans.”

“I’m so proud of this incredible cast and crew who worked under challenging circumstances to create a unique, original sci-fi action movie… something that’s increasingly rare. Watching this team of actors and artisans effortlessly blend action, horror, comedy, and drama was a dream come true for me … and I hope will thrill audiences this summer,” said director Chris McKay.

“It is fantastic to once again partner with Amazon to release another film from the Skydance canon,” said Skydance CEO David Ellison. “Jen and the marketing team have had great success in making film premieres on the Amazon platform must-see events and with Chris Pratt headlining, everything goes up to another level.”

Chris Hemsworth Reveals What It’s Really Like Working With Chris Pratt

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is flush with Chrises, but in its 13 years, it’s been mostly only Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Chris Evans (Captain America) working together as part of the Avengers, while Chris Pratt (Peter Quill) has been leading the Guardians of the Galaxy on their space misadventures. However, since the most ambitious crossover event in history — a.k.a. Avengers: Infinity War – that’s been entirely shaken up: Now, Hemsworth and Pratt are filming Thor: Love and Thunder together in Australia.

Since Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor has been bopping around space more than he’s been on Earth, so it’s only natural that he’s finding a new team with the Guardians of the Galaxy. They first found him stranded in space, grieving the loss of his brother. Immediately, there was friction between Thor and Quill, but they hardly spent any time together before Thor decided to join the team at the end of Avengers: Endgame. The last we saw them, Quill was mourning the loss of Gamora (Zoe Saldana), while Thor was feeling rather aimless.

Now, heading into Thor: Love and Thunder, they’re still together, so fans can count on several Guardians making an appearance in the film before their own Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Set pictures show Hemsworth and Pratt filming together, with Thor in a new Thunderstrike outfit. In a recent interview, Hemsworth revealed just what it’s like working together.

If Quill is intimidated by Thor, it certainly seems to be the other way around in real life: To GQ, Hemsworth said about his co-star, “The guy is wildly impressive with the spontaneity and the humour and the things he comes up with. It’s both funny, inspiring and intimidating.” Ever since they first joined forces, Hemsworth has been effusively praising Pratt.

On-screen, the pair of them have a friendly rivalry over leadership of the Guardians — or Asgardians, depending on who you ask — of the Galaxy. A few months ago, Pratt brought that rivalry into real life when Hemsworth posted a photo of himself working out on Instagram. Pratt commented: “Hey bud. Just heard from my trainer and he needs you to stop working out because since we’re gonna be in the same movie and everything he doesn’t want me to stand next to you if you look like that so I’m gonna need you to put on 25 lbs real quick cool thanks.” Clearly, Thor’s lost some weight since we last saw him, which will probably do nothing to help Quill’s insecurities.

Whatever threat these heroes have to face, fans cans certainly expect more hilarious banter between Thor and Quill when Thor: Love and Thunder releases May 6, 2022.

Director Dan Scanlon & Producer Kori Rae Land First Oscar Noms For Disney/Pixar’s ‘Onward’

Today, director Dan Scanlon and producer Kori Rae were recognized with their first Oscar nominations, claiming a slot in the Best Animated Feature category with Disney/Pixar’s Onward.

“We’re so proud of the film, and proud of the cast and crew, and it’s a real honor,” said Scanlon. “It’s so surreal, and early in the morning, so it almost feels like a dream. But it’s pretty great. We’re so happy for the cast and crew that put their all into this film, and shared their personal stories, along with Dan’s and mine,” added Rae. “There was a whole lot of heart from the crew on the film, and I’m just so happy for all of them.”

Drawing inspiration for the film from the loss of his father at a very early age, Scanlon feels the film has resonated, in part, because loss has unfortunately been rampant, in the time of the coronavirus pandemic. “And like Kori mentioned, because we put a lot of our personal stories into this movie, I think that’s why it connects with people,” he said. “I think a lot of people see their own lives in the film, so hopefully it’s a movie that they’re going back to and viewing more than once, and getting something out of every time.”

While Scanlon and Rae were unable to get into specifics regarding future projects, they did note that they have reteamed, in the development of new ideas. “We’re working together again, which is great,” Scanlon said. “I think we’ve learned so much with every film we’ve made together, and we’ll see where it goes.”

The second Disney/Pixar animated feature from Scanlon, following 2013’s Monsters UniversityOnward centers on Ian (Tom Holland) and Barley Lightfoot (Chris Pratt), elven brothers in search of a magical artifact that will bring their father back to life for a day.

Thus far in awards season, the film has claimed Best Animated Feature nominations at the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs, along with seven Annie Award noms and other accolades.

In the Oscars’ Animated Feature category, the pic will contend opposite Soul (Disney/Pixar), Wolfwalkers (Apple TV+), Over the Moon (Netflix), and A Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (Netflix/Aardman Animations).

Chris Pratt Celebrates 20 Years In Hollywood With Emotional Post: ‘I Was a Dude With a Dream Living in a Van’

Chris Pratt is feeling grateful for his successful career in Hollywood. The 41-year-old actor reflected on his rise to fame in an emotional post on Instagram to celebrate his latest role in Amazon’s “The Terminal List.”

“It’s hard to believe. 20 years ago I was a dude with a dream living in a van. I moved to LA with one sweater, two pairs of shorts and some rollerblades in a duffel bag,” he wrote alongside a photo of the clapperboard from the set of his new series. “I look around and see the trailers, the trucks, the cast and crew, hundreds of masked and shielded Angelenos getting back to work, adhering strictly to our covid protocols, and I look at the mountain of work ahead of us and my heart just swells,” his post continued. Adding, “So… needless to say, this town has been good to me. I’m grateful. Hollywood gets a bad wrap. We have our share of weirdos and no shortage of whackos. But it makes room for talent, hard work and a willingness to never be stop learning.”

Chris was discovered by a director while he was a waiter at a Bubba Gump restaurant in Hawaii and moved to Los Angeles at 19-years-old. He got his start on TV appearing in “Everwood” and “The O.C.” He gained worldwide fame for his role as Andy Dwyer on NBC’s hit sitcom “Parks and Recreation” and went on to star in blockbusters like “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the “Jurassic World” along with their sequels.
