With the recent release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in May, Chris Pratt has officially established his definitive credibility in the summer sequel landscape. However, it also looks like he's about to double down on that success with the debut of next year's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The actor has played a significant role in the resurrection of the long dormant franchise, and his character Owen has become a perfect example of modern day silver screen masculinity. Building off of that idea, Pratt has posted a brand new photo of his spray tan from the film, and it's an admittedly odd style choice. Check it out.
We're not exactly sure how many filters Chris Pratt applied to that particular photo, but it's still pretty clear that the guy has once again bronzed up to portray the focal point of the Jurassic series -- which makes sense, considering how much time Owen spends in the jungle. Clad in a quintessentially tropical wardrobe (the sort of outfit a dad would wear on a 1980s beach vacation), the actor shows off his thoroughly spray-tanned arms, as well as his super pale legs. Why spray tan all over when you can just do your arms, amiright? I'm no expert on the spray tan process, but he may want to consider getting a refund from whoever applied his bronzer; they missed a few spots below the arms...
Another element worth noting in this photo is the fact that Chris Pratt has obviously maintained his commitment to his transformation from Andy Dwyer into a full-blown movie star. He seems to have taken his bulking process to an insane new level for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which helps lend the sense that he's going to kick some serious ass (dinosaur and human alike) when the film debuts in theaters next year. Tan or half-tan, the guy has enough muscle to sell himself as a bonafide action star.
Although Chris Pratt seems to have once again dialed up the charm and fun as he returns to the role of Owen with this new picture, that doesn't necessarily mean the tone of the film will completely match his playful demeanor. Much of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom's story remains firmly under wraps, but nearly all of the information that we have about the project points to a darker and more intense story about these prehistoric creatures and their human prey. Specifically, J.A. Bayona's upcoming sequel will lean heavily on themes of animal rights (and human abuses of those rights) as they pertain to the dinosaurs. With such a notable balance of blockbuster fun and real world issues, all eyes are on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to potentially surpass its predecessor in a number of exciting ways.
