Chris Pratt transforms into Pringles man in Super Bowl commercial

After bringing iconic characters like Mario and Garfield to life, Chris Pratt has found his next starring role: the Pringles man.

The Guardians of the Galaxy actor stars in Pringles’s 2024 Super Bowl commercial, sporting a moustache as he plays the crisp’s iconic mascot Mr P. At the start of the advert, the actor is buying Pringles when an employee points out his resemblance to the mascot.

Chris Pratt to star in ‘MERCY’ from director Timur Bekmambetov.

Amazon MGM Studios has just landed a big sci-fi film package it is setting a global theatrical release for in Mercy, starring Chris Pratt, directed by Timur Bekmambetov and produced by Oscar-nominated producer Charles Roven. I understand the deal closed in the past week with a spring start of production planned.

The project puts Pratt back in business with Amazon, which acquired his Skydance movie The Tomorrow War from Paramount and turned into a big Prime Video hit during the pandemic. He also has the series The Terminal List on Prime. The movie also reps a reunion for Pratt and Bekmambetov, who both worked on the latter’s 2008 Hollywood directorial debut Wanted, a $342 million-grossing, Oscar-nominated blockbuster based on Mark Millar’s comic book.

Written by Marco van Belle (Arthur & Merlin), Mercy is set in the near future when capital crime has increased. The pic follows a detective (Pratt) who is accused of a violent crime and forced to prove his innocence.

Roven, who just received a second Best Picture Oscar nomination for Oppenheimer, will produce Mercy under his Atlas Entertainment along with the label’s SVP Robert Amidon as part of the production team alongside Bekmambetov with his production banner BEL’s executive Majd Nassif.

Mercy is the first in a series of titles that Amazon MGM Studios is greenlighting for theatrical distribution. In their vast slate, similar to other studios, some movies are released for the big screen, while others are designated for Prime Video.

“From the moment Chuck Roven brought us Mercy and we read Marco van Belle’s script, we knew the film was meant for the big screen,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon MGM Studios. “As our relationship with The Terminal List and The Tomorrow War’s Chris Pratt continues to extend across film, we can’t wait to watch him bring this action-packed story to life, guided by Chuck and the vision of director Timur Bekmambetov. We could not imagine a better star and filmmaking team to execute on and deliver what is sure to be a gripping thrill ride and look forward to audiences being able to experience it in theaters.”

Terminal List Prequel Moves Forward At Prime Video, Chris Pratt To Co-Star

Prime Video officially orders the Terminal List prequel series, The Terminal List: Dark Wolf, to series, with Chris Pratt and Taylor Kitsch starring.

The Terminal List prequel series, The Terminal List: Dark Wolf, is officially moving forward at Prime Video with Chris Pratt and Taylor Kitsch signed on to appear. The flagship show first premiered on Prime Video in July 2022 and follows U.S. Navy SEAL James Reece (Pratt), who sets out on a journey for truth and vengeance after a mission goes suspiciously wrong and endangers his family. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, The Terminal List was renewed for season 2, and reports arose that a prequel series was also in development.

As reported by TVLine, Prime Video announced that it has officially ordered The Terminal List: Dark Wolf to series. Both Pratt and Kitsch have signed on to appear in the new series as Reece and Ben Edwards, respectively. However, it is unclear how many years before The Terminal List the prequel series will be set and when it might arrive on Prime.

When the discussions of The Terminal List: Dark Wolf first arose, there was speculation that Prime Video was interested in turning the original show into a franchise. There is undoubtedly enough source material for multiple Terminal List seasons and spinoffs, given that it is based on the book series of the same name by Jack Carr, which includes six books, with a seventh arriving in May. However, it has been confirmed that the series’ protagonist, Reece, won’t be the lead star of the prequel.

Videos: “The Garfield Movie” Trailer

Chris Pratt embodies the world’s most sarcastic yet endearing orange feline in the trailer for “The Garfield Movie,” premiering in theaters on May 24, 2024.

The new animated feature introduces new characters to comic creator Jim Davis’ universe, including Samuel L. Jackson as Vic, Garfield’s father. Both Pratt and Jackson have been honing their voice acting chops, with Jackson playing another animated cat in “Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank” and Pratt portraying Mario in “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.”

In the trailer for “The Garfield Movie,” Pratt’s lovable fat cat explains how he adopted his owner, John. Before he dives into a tray of lasagna, he warns the audience, “I apologize in advance. The eating you’re about to see will not be pretty. And if you have young children, this would be a good time for them to leave the room.”

James Gunn Teases Role For Chris Pratt In New DC Universe

James Gunn has officially made his transition to the DC Universe from the MCU. However, he may not be alone, with the director teasing Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt may come along for the ride.

It’s no secret that James Gunn, like any director, plays favorites when working on films. Actors like Nathan Fillion and Michael Rooker appear in almost every film he’s done, and multiple Guardians of the Galaxy actors like Sean Gunn and Maria Bakalova have already made the jump from the MCU to the DC Universe, leading many to suspect others may be on their way. When asked if Gunn would consider putting Pom Klementieff or Chris Pratt in Peacemaker as themselves, the director revealed he has reasons they wouldn’t:

There are reasons I wouldn’t want either of those actors to play themselves in the DCU!

Pom Klementieff has previously confirmed that she’s had discussion with James Gunn to play a specific character in the DC Universe, making it no surprise she’s up for a role. Chris Pratt has also stated that he’s open to following Gunn wherever he goes. While the Guardians of the Galaxy may be over, it certainly seems their actors will find new life (and new work) at DC Studios.

Live-action Jak and Daxter film reportedly casting Chris Pratt and Tom Holland

We can barely move for video game adaptations these days, and while the likes of The Super Mario Bros. Movie and HBO’s The Last of Us have been commercial and critical giants, there are worries that we’re making these projects just for the sake of it. Like Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, could Jak and Daxter be the next adaptation?

First released in 2001, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy was a PlayStation platformer that hoped to follow in the footsteps of Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot. The IP has changed hands plenty over the years, and while we’ve not had a new game since 2009, there’s still a loyal legion of fans.

With more video game movies by the day, MyTimeToShineHello reports that Jak and Daxter is the next to get the silver screen treatment. The account previously leaked full scripts for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, meaning it’s a pretty trusted source.

According to the account, Marvel Cinematic Universe favourites Chris Pratt and Tom Holland are in the running to play Jak and Daxter. Venom’s Ruben Fleischer is apparently going to direct, which would reunite him with Holland after the pair worked on Sony’s Uncharted movie.

In something of a role reversal, the younger Holland is tipped to play the elf-like Jak, while Pratt will voice the comedic Daxter. The stars have previously worked together on Avengers: Infinity War and Pixar’s Onward. It’s definitely an unusual casting, and comes after Holland himself said he was interested in the idea.
