It's official: Chris Pratt has become Hollywood's biggest and most lucrative star. His latest box office movie Jurassic World has smashed records this weekend, bringing in an estimated $511 million in ticket sales.
According to the Daily Mail on Sunday, Jurassic World was close to beating 2012's The Avengers for the biggest domestic opener on weekend. Jurassic World made $204.6 million in the United States while The Avengers pulled in $207.4 million two years ago.
Melissa McCarthy's film Spy came in at second place with $16 million while Dwayne Johnson's San Andreas came in third with $11 million.
Meanwhile, Pratt's Jurassic World co-star Bryce Dallas Howard had nothing but words of praise for him, calling him a "solid guy" both on and off the big screen.
According to E! Online on Tuesday, Howard said that she had an incredible experience working with Pratt while making their film together.
"He's just a beautiful human being inside and out and incredibly honorable. I could go on and on," she said before the film's release this Friday. "For my daughter, for my son, I'm so glad that they have someone like that to look up to in movies. He's pretty much a unicorn."
She added, "When you're around someone like him, there's nothing that surprising because he's just consistently so hilarious. You're always caught off by how much you're peeing your pants from laughter."
