Chris Pratt — who went from chubby TV star to Hollywood god — is no stranger to blockbuster movies, thanks to his roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World. As an action superstar with excellent comedic timing who also happens to be very easy on the eyes, what's not to like? If you're a Pratt fan, you're in luck; he's got five downright exciting movies coming out within the next two years. Check them out below:
1. The Magnificent Seven
Release date: September 23, 2016
This one's a reimagining of a Hollywood classic, so it's got a lot to live up to. The movie sees seven (obviously) gunmen form an alliance in an attempt to save a village from thieving bad guys. It will be the first time we see Pratt in a Western. Cue rootin', tootin', shootin' fun, snappy one-liners, horses and saloon brawls. Alongside Chris, we have a stellar cast, with Denzel Washington, Ethan Hawke, Vincent D'Onofrio and Matt Bomer all coming along for the ride. Saddle up!
Release date: December 21, 2016
Imagine waking up on a spacecraft, scared and alone — that is, until you find someone else awake on board. That other person is Chris Pratt, doesn't sound all that bad, does it? In fact, this sci-fi adventure challenges how we as human beings make choices and interact. The spaceship is carrying the surviving humans to an undisclosed destination. They have been put to sleep for the length of the journey, but two people wake up 60 years too early. Chris Pratt stars opposite Jennifer Lawrence in this cosmic movie, Laurence Fishburne and Michael Sheen also feature. The trailer is yet to be released for this movie, but with a cast like that, we're pretty confident it's going to be worth a watch.
3. Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
Release date: May 5, 2017
Chris Pratt returns as Peter Quill/Star-Lord in the highly anticipated sequel to the stratospheric first installment. The first movie was an example of Marvel Comic adaptations done right. We can look forward to many of the original cast returning with (rumor has it) the added bonus of Rambo. That's right, Sylvester Stallone is listed, his character however is not, so we shall have to wait and see who he plays. No doubt Marvel fans will be waiting to see if this movie can live up to the first, and Marvel will be sure to keep us guessing with teasers until the release.

4. Avengers: Infinity War
Release date: May 4, 2018
It's rumored that Pratt as his alias Star-Lord shall be joining up with the Avengers in the next Avengers movie. The movie is expected to be just as popular as the previous ones, although there are some doubts about how they are going to contain such a huge storyline from the comics in only one feature-length film. It would be great to see Pratt explore his character in a different storyline, outside of Guardians but we shall have to wait and see if those Hollywood rumors are true. FINGERS, LEGS AND EVERYTHING CROSSED!
5. Untitled Jurassic World Sequel
Dinosaurs are super cool, Chris Pratt is mighty hot, combine the two and you've got a winning formula. After the recent success of Jurassic World in 2015, audiences can look forward to a sequel. Yes, that's right, it's been announced that Pratt shall be returning as our sexy hero, Owen. 25 years after the original Jurassic Park was released, we shall get the follow-up to Jurassic World. The movie does not yet have a title, but we know Bryce Dallas Howard shall be getting in on the action too. There are rumors of Jeff Goldblum making an appearance as well, which is so exciting I could cry.
Release date: June 22, 2018
Overall, an exciting list of upcoming movies from Pratt. It's great to see him branching out into new genres too. I'm still holding my breath for a Chris Pratt period drama though, imagine all the smolder!
