...this film certainly seems to have a lot going for it.

Perhaps the most hyped aspect about the trailer is the lead performance by Chris Pratt. Fresh off his breakout live-action role in Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World is extremely fortunate to have Pratt taking center stage. Plus, we the audience are going to have the pleasure of seeing Star-Lord himself ride a motorcycle through a group of hungry raptors.

Now this is awesome!

However, while audiences were thrilled to see Chris Pratt in this trailer, one person did not feel the same way. That person was Pratt himself.

In a recent article by Vulture, author Kyle Buchanan described the discussion he had with Pratt. They were discussing Jurassic World during an awards season party celebrating the success of The Lego Movie. Pratt admitted to Buchanan that his main issue with Jurassic World's trailer was his own performance.

I'm just like, 'Aw, why did I do that with my eyebrow?' Unfortunately, it was one of those things you do as an artist where you're hypercritical about it the first time you see it. I had to take a couple steps back and keep watching it before I was like, 'Oh my God, that is really good.' So it took me two or three times seeing it before I knew it was great, but that's how I was with Guardians of the Galaxy, that's how I was with The Lego Movie, that's how I am with everything I'm in.
Was Pratt referring to this eyebrow position?

He then took some time to address the fans who were not satisfied with the trailer. Presumably, he referred to the fans who decried the use of CGI and a familiar storyline.

The movie's gonna be ten times better than the trailer.

Now that Pratt has put his two cents in on the trailer, are you more excited to see the film? If so, mark your calendar for June 12, 2015; Jurassic World is on its way.
