One certainly can’t accuse Chris Pratt of being a method actor. (Unless, his ‘Jurassic World’ role, Owen Grady acts just like Chris Pratt.) The actor who rose to prominence on the sitcom ‘Parks and Recreation’ hasn’t lost his natural comic appeal as highlighted in a series of behind-the-scenes clips as he cuts up in between takes, giving a little insight into the film making process… but mostly thrusting his pelvis, wiggling around and learning to whistle, a skill he seems to have never picked up before now. (He’s not so great on a motorcycle either, it seems.)
There are no dinosaurs evident– those are CGI. But you can get a glimpse into what may make it into the final film.
