Entertainment Weekly has a first look at Chris Pratt racing with the raptors in the upcoming Jurassic World.
Pratt, who is experiencing monumental success with this year's blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, says he is excited to be a part of another dream project.
"I grew up loving Jurassic Park and these epic spectacles,” he said. “I saw [the first one] opening night in the theater. It was a huge moment for me.”
The fourth installment of Universal’s biggest franchise is set 22 years after the original Jurassic Park.
The island of Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Masrani Corporation. Owen (Pratt), a member of Jurassic World's on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the velociraptors. After many years, Jurassic World's attendance rates begin to decline and a new attraction, created to re-spark visitor interest, gravely backfires.
Jurassic World is scheduled to be released on June 12, 2015.
