Chris Pratt is one of the current biggest stars in Hollywood. He has been a part of several successful franchises and delivered some of the greatest hits. From the MCU to Jurassic Park, he is a major money-making name in the worldwide box office. In this year alone, he has delivered back-to-back hits in the form of The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Interestingly, Chris Pratt stands even superior to his MCU co-stars Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson in a major box office aspect. Even though he stands below them in fifth place at the worldwide box office, his average per movie earning is far better than his co-stars.
It is praiseworthy that among the 100 Top Leading Stars at the worldwide box office, the Top 5 spots are conquered by successful MCU personalities. However, it looks like nobody can beat Star-Lord’s unique record.
Chris Pratt has a unique box office record
When Chris Pratt started his Hollywood career by playing minor characters, nobody expected that the actor would turn into such a box office force. He became a prominent name after playing Andy Dwyer in the NBC series Parks & Recreation.
He became a famous worldwide star after appearing in movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World. Recently, the third part of GotG earned around $846 million worldwide, whereas The Super Mario Bros. Movie was a gargantuan $1.3 billion grosser.
According to The Numbers, Chris Pratt currently stands at the 5th spot at the Worldwide Box Office with a magnificent $13,944,679,936.
Chris Pratt is topped by his MCU co-stars Zoe Saldana, Robert Downey Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, and Scarlett Johansson. Even though the 5th position of the Passengers actor might look unappealing to some, it must be noted that Pratt’s average per-movie earning is greater than anyone else. The actor has a record-breaking earning of $606.29 million, precisely $606,290,432.
Just above Chris Pratt, Robert Downey Jr., who recently earned heavy praise from Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer, has an average per-movie earning of $326,981,689. On the other hand, Scarlett Johansson’s record stands at $441,445,101. With an amazing line-up planned, it doesn’t seem Pratt’s streak will end soon.
Will Chris Pratt’s The Garfield Movie prove to be another hit?
Besides live-action, Chris Pratt has also made a name for voice-acting in some of the best animated projects like The Lego Movie and The Super Mario Bros. Movie. Looks like, now, it can contribute to his success with the upcoming The Garfield Movie.
The Garfield Movie, based on Jim Davis’ comic strip, will star the Star-Lord fame as the world-famous lasagna-loving orange cat. Alongside Pratt, Samuel L. Jackson will star in the movie as Garfield’s estranged father Vic. Now, it will be exciting to see if the Onward actor can also lead this upcoming animated movie to a Super Mario-esque success.
The 44-year-old is also roped in for a role beside Millie Bobby Brown in The Electric State, which will be directed by the Marvel fame directorial duo, Anthony and Joe Russo. The sci-fi adventure flick also stars many more popular faces such as Ke Huy Quan, Giancarlo Esposito, Anthony Mackie, and Brian Cox.
