More Chris Pratt and Jurassic World? Yes Please!
The fourth installment of the dinosaur-centric franchise has dominated the box office, earning $511.8 million globally with $204.6 million of that coming from the domestic box office alone. The numbers have certainly been explosive, as Jurassic World has officially received the honor of being history's biggest opening worldwide.
Because of the movie's incredible success, it wouldn't be surprising if Colin Trevorrow wanted to keep creating movies for the franchise. But does the Parks and Recreation alum want to keep doing them?
Without a doubt!
Entertainment Weekly caught up with Pratt to discuss how and why he got involved with the Trevorrow-directed project, and whether or not he would sign on to do more installments if presented with the opportunity. The Guardians of the Galaxy star revealed he already agreed to more!
"I am [signed on]," he dished. "They have me for I think 38 movies or something."

That's a lot of dinosaurs to come up with to take down a park! Regardless of whether the studio agrees to make another, Pratt couldn't be more excited about Jurassic World's roaring success.
"It feels so wonderful to hear the overwhelmingly positive response," he wrote on his Facebook page Saturday. "We are incredibly blessed and overcome with joy at the outcome of the movie and couldn't be more appreciative for the amazing support you've shown so far. This is bigger than all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
But if you've seen the latest blockbuster, you might be wondering how Trevorrow could possibly continue the storyline. No spoilers here, but if you've seen Jurassic Park you know that there is some serious bloodshed. He told EW, however, that a follow-up might not take place in an amusement park.
"I felt like it was my responsibility to at least tee up where we could go and in doing that I felt like I don't want to make it yet another island movie or another theme park movie," he explained. "I felt by introducing a couple key ideas and some of them are introduced by Dr. Wu, played by B.D. Wong, and even the simple idea that these people at Jurassic World won't always be the only people that can clone a dinosaur. "
He added, "We never imagined what happens when this technology goes open source. I think the minute that you add an idea like that into something like this it can open up the minds of every young person who loved these movies. I think there's a lot room to grow."
