Chris Pratt's Unrepeatable Jurassic World Success

It seems Chris Pratt, the Guardians of the Galaxy star, is a force to reckon with regarding box office earnings. His role as Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord in the Marvel universe, set the stage for undeniable success. Despite fans' uncertainty, Pratt proved his ability to carry massive franchise roles and exceeded audience expectations. His transformation for Jurassic World was a turning point, with the release becoming a perfect sequel to the Jurassic franchise.

The next iteration, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, came out in 2018 to become the second most expensive movie ever made with a budget of a staggering $432 million. Despite critiques of its screenplay, the stunning visuals proved appealing. Pratt's star power continued to shine, overcoming negative reviews and realizing over a billion dollars in box office collection with 2022's Jurassic World Dominion.

For context, Pratt's contributions to the Jurassic World series are as follows:

– Jurassic World (Released on June 12, 2015): $1,669,963,641
– Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (Released on June 22, 2018): $1,308,323,302
– Jurassic World Dominion (Released on June 10, 2022): $1,004,004,592

Considering these figures, concerns arise if the newly announced Manuel Garcia-Rulfo can replicate the magic Chris Pratt brought to the franchise.

A Successful Career Beyond Jurassic World

Beyond Jurassic World, Chris managed to become a notable figure in Hollywood. In the MCU's Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy, Pratt played a significant role, contributing to the combined collection of nearly $2.5 billion. He was also part of some well-known MCU billion-dollar-grossing projects, such as and Avengers: Endgame.

The Super Mario Bros. 2023 movie, where Pratt was the voice of Mario, was the second-highest-grossing film that year, only surpassed by Barbie. Here's a snapshot of Pratt's movie collections besides Jurassic World:

– Avengers: Endgame (Released on April 23, 2019): $2,788,912,285
– Avengers: Infinity War (Released on April 25, 2018): $2,048,359,754
– The Super Mario Bros. Movie (Released on April 4, 2023): $1,361,681,488
– Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (Released on May 5, 2017): $869,087,963
– Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 (Released on May 5, 2023): $845,468,744
– Guardians of the Galaxy (Released on Aug 1, ): $770,882,395

Despite a prosperous career, Pratt is reportedly worth less than many of his colleagues, with an estimated net worth of $100 million. Nevertheless, his earnings from Jurassic World were lucrative, with reporting a $10 million paycheck for the second movie in the trilogy.

It remains to be seen whether Manuel Garcia-Rulfo can fill in the successful shoes previously occupied by Pratt in the upcoming Jurassic World movie. Watchers can stream Jurassic World on Max and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on Hulu, while Jurassic World Dominion is available on Starz.
