Chris Pratt has recently talked to MTV, under which he managed to talk about his role in Colin Trevorrow’s upcoming film Jurassic World. He also managed to let it slip that the film managed to find a believable way of manufacturing a new situation that will find both humans and dinosaurs on the same island:
“What I liked about it was it answers the question of, ‘Why would you do that?’,” says Pratt. “Like, how do you suspend disbelief to be like, ‘Oh yes, let’s make this mistake again. We haven’t learned our lesson about dinosaurs, we should definitely live with them and see how that works out!’ after like three tries at it.
“They answer the question really well through the script. Colin did a great job of writing it and justifying it and in his own way having fun with that, so anybody who goes in with that question will be really amused – the way I was – about how they answer that.”
Pratt also describes his character as something of a cross between Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill’s original characters from the original film:
“He’s got a little of both,” says Pratt. “He’s got a little bit of the Goldblum cynicism but also the Sam Neill excitement at the wonder of the biology of it all, so it’s a combination.”
