Chris Pratt climbs inside the mouth of a LEGO dinosaur at the Jurassic World: Dominion premiere. Since 2015, Pratt has starred as the ethologist, Navy veteran, and velociraptor trainer Owen Grady, the man responsible for raising the dinosaurs at Jurassic World. Over the course of the trilogy, Owen has taken on a few other roles as well, developing a romantic relationship with Jurassic World park manager Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard). In Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the two become the adoptive parents of Maisie Lockwood (Isabella Sermon), a clone who released the dinosaurs onto the mainland.
The third and final film in the trilogy, Dominion, is set to pick up four years after the incident at Lockwood estate in Fallen Kingdom. Now, all over the world, dinosaurs live and hunt alongside humans. Pratt and Howard return once again to lead the Jurassic World Dominion cast, which is also bringing back the trio of Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern, who haven’t appeared together since the original Jurassic Park in 1993. Tickets for the highly-anticipated summer blockbuster are now on sale ahead of its theatrical release on June 10.
With about a month to go until Dominion‘s arrival, Chris Pratt was seen having a little fun at the movie’s red carpet premiere. In a video shared on his social media, Pratt plays around with a LEGO minifigure of Owen Grady on his signature motorcycle, which he attaches to the teeth of a huge tyrannosaurus rex head made out of LEGO bricks. Though he wasn’t done yet, as Pratt proceeded to climb inside the LEGO T-rex’s mouth himself. Watch the video below:
While Pratt may play the famous raptor wrangler and the Jurassic World trilogy’s main hero on screen, his interactions with the LEGO T-rex were not quite as graceful. Shortly after climbing inside its mouth, which did a surprisingly good job of supporting his weight, Pratt was chastised by security. Offscreen, someone can be heard scolding him, “Sir, out of the dinosaur!” The hilarious video garnered reactions from the official Jurassic World account and James Gunn on Instagram.
Writer/director Gunn and Pratt are close cohorts due to Pratt’s role as Star-Lord in the Gunn-helmed Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy, and the fun video comes at a time when calls for Marvel to recast Pratt due to his controversial religious affiliations have heated up. Though Gunn has assured that won’t happen, it remains to be seen if this controversy will have any effect on the Jurassic World series. It likely won’t, however, as the trilogy is seemingly set to end after the release of Jurassic World Dominion this summer.
