On Tuesday morning (June 23) Marvel made the formal announcement, drawing attention to the 19-year-old British actor’s impressive resume which includes “The Impossible,” “Wolf Hall” and “Billy Elliot: The Musical.”
Up until this past weekend, “The Avengers” had the title for highest-earning opening weekend, but now “Jurassic World” is the reigning champion.
After tallying up the total domestic sales figures, the Chris Pratt flick surpassed the Marvel films’ $207.4 million with $208.8 million, and when added to its $315.3 million international take, “Jurassic World” is also the biggest global opener of all time.
Last year Disney’s “Maleficent” was one of the hottest films to hit theaters, and it sounds like there’s a second installment on the way.
According to Deadline, Angelina Jolie is working out the details to reprise her role as the Mistress of All Evil while original screenwriter Linda Woolverton and producer Joe Roth are also attached to the project.
