The Jurassic Park franchise is all about putting characters through physical and emotional wringers. Between forcing kids to deal with raptors in a kitchen and a T-rex that can only be seen through night vision goggles, the series has continuously upped its game over the years. It happened again in 2015 with Jurassic World, and it will continue this year with the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. In fact, it sounds like production on J.A. Bayona's sequel got pretty nasty for Chris Pratt, as the film's star had to swim through urine during one particularly rough shoot. In a recent interview, the Guardians of the Galaxy star explained:
My eyes got so bloodshot-red. They were weeping for three days because there's so much chlorine, because you know you have like 45 crew guys in the water. I'm like, 'Um, no one is taking a bathroom break yet so I'm definitely swimming in everyone's piss, right? Just to be clear, that's your urine in my eyeballs? Got it.'
So, it is relatively safe to say that is a pretty nasty situation, right? Though Chris Pratt could not formally confirm that he got urine in his eyes, he was more or less able to piece that together, due to the fact that nobody around him seemed to be taking a bathroom break while shooting an underwater scene. 45 members of a crew standing in the water? Pratt seems to think that someone definitely peed.
Though it is admittedly pretty disgusting to know that Chris Pratt found himself forced to swim through urine on the set of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the end result is a movie that arguably seems far more intense than the one that preceded it. Per his remarks to EW, Pratt noted that the stunts are even more intense on this film, which suggests a potential blockbuster with even more intense set pieces and higher stakes for the human charters. This obviously makes a certain degree of sense, particularly when we consider the fact that this sequel will see our heroes journey back to the monster-filled island to save the dinosaurs from a volcanic eruption threatening to eliminate all life in the now-abandoned park.
