@prattprattpratt – The Doctah Has Your Back

Instagram does this thing where it mutes all the videos it shows and forces you to turn on the volume in order to hear them. (maybe because most people are watching those videos at work when they should be working and don’t want to get caught. I know that’s when I do it. ) So when I made a video recently with subtitles, and requested that people turn up the volume and not just “read the subtitles” it was so people wouldn’t scroll past the video on mute, thus watching and digesting the information in the video. HOWEVER, I realize now doing so was incredibly insensitive to the many folks out there who depend on subtitles. More than 38 million Americans live with some sort of hearing disability. So I want to apologize. I have people in my life who are hearing-impaired, and the last thing in the world I would want to do is offend them or anybody who suffers from hearing loss or any other disability. So truly from the bottom of my heart I apologize. Thanks for pointing this out to me. In the future I’ll try to be a little less ignorant about it. Now… I know some of you are going to say, “Hey! Chris only apologized because his publicist made him!” Well. That is not the case. As always I control my social media. Nobody else. And I am doing this because I’m actually really sorry. Apologies are powerful. I don’t dole them out Willy-Nilly. This is one of those moments where I screwed up and here’s me begging your pardon. I hope you accept my apology. And on that note. Why doesn’t Instagram have some kind of technology to automatically add subtitles to its videos? Or at least the option. I did a little exploring and it seems lacking in that area. Shouldn’t there be an option for closed captioning or something? I’ve made them lord knows how much money with my videos and pictures. Essentially sharing myself for free. I know they profit. So… GET ON IT INSTAGRAM!!! Put closed captioning on your app. #CCinstaNow

First things first, if you think Chris Pratt is an asshole for offending the deaf, then check this video out about something a deaf person is glad not to hear:

Now, if you don’t think Chris is an ass, and is pretty cool for apologizing to 1 of 343 million global fans, then don’t watch the video above.  Chris, we salute you.  Cool movie, good job.

Trailer Alert – Passengers

After months of waiting, the trailer for Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence’s movie Passengershas finally arrived.

The film follows Preston and Aurora, two passengers on a spacecraft traveling to a distant colony planet. Each were awoken decades before they were supposed to arrive at their destination, and are left to deal with the ship as it begins to malfunction. (Via The Verge)

Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence…I shouldn’t have to say anything else about this film to get you to see it, but let me try…OUTERSPACE. Did that do it?

This movie feels like a way more adult version of rocket man. Just swap a chimp stealing a sleep pod for a “technical” malfunction and swap tubes of gross food for a robot bartender that seems like he was pulled directly from “The Shining”. I’m so excited to see this movie. In fact, i’ll be jumping into my own sleep pod in preparation (my freezer). Wake me when it’s in theaters.

Billy on the Street With Chris Pratt

If you haven’t seen “Billy on the Street” then now is a perfect opportunity to jump right in! Friends and former costars, Bill and Chris, hit the streets to see if people know who Chris Pratt is. He just happened to have starred in one of the top grossing movies of the year and you will be shocked at how many people don’t know him.

‘Jurassic World’ Just Scored The Biggest Opening Weekend Box Office In Movie History

ROAR Jurassic World” now holds the record for the biggest opening in movie history.

After the final numbers were tallied, the dinosaur thriller inched past “Marvel’s the Avengers” to become top dog on the all-time list, with a U.S. debut of $208.8 million. The superhero blockbuster was the previous record holder with a $207.4 million bow. It also topped “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2″ and its $314 million opening to set a new benchmark for an overseas launch with $315.6 million.

Universal, the studio behind the film, initially estimated that “Jurassic World” would open to $204.6 million domestically, but the blockbuster had a stronger than anticipated Sunday.

Have yourself a weekend, Jurassic World. How stupid does Universal feel right now? Estimating $204.6 million. Uh news flash, you were $4.2 million off. Maybe do better next time. These are obviously supernatural numbers, and I’m glad that Jurassic World was the movie to do this. On top of having America’s sweetheart Chris Pratt as it’s lead, it’s nice to see a non superhero movie get some loving. The Avengers or Iron Man or the upcoming Batman vs. Superman are almost cheat codes at this point. You know they’re going to open up at worst $100 million or more. But Jurassic World was an sequel to a 20 year old movie that definitely had some nostalgia value, but I can’t imagine anyone thought it would break records. Good for Chris Pratt, good for Jurassic World, and good for the dinosaurs. They’ve had a rough million or so years, they deserved this one.

Trailer Alert – New “Jurassic World” Trailer

Jurassic World did a good job disguising the villain dino in its trailers and teasers, and they continue to do so (more or less) in this one. With this newest trailer you get more of the plot, more dinos and some Chris Pratt funny business. Saying i’m excited to see this movie is a vast understatement. Chris Pratt, if one scale on those Raptors  is hurt I will not be happy.

I want to be Best Friends with Chris Pratt, Chris Evans, and Jimmy Fallon (Sorry Ryan, You’re Out)

I think that if I turned around and saw Jimmy Fallon, Captain America, and Star Lord photobombing my picture I would have passed out. I love how this is what these guys are like. Just regular guys, pulling pranks on people. Awesome!

Chris Pratt & Chris Evans Will Both Be Visiting Children’s Hospital Because They’re Wonderful Peopl

I saw this coming a mile away, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome. For those who don’t know, Chris Evans (Captain America) is a huge Patriots fan and Chris Pratt (Starlord) is a huge Seahawks fan. The loser of the Super Bowl was going to visit a children’s hospital in the rival QB’s jersey. Since the Seahawks lost, Chris Pratt was going to visit a Boston children’s hospital dressed as Starlord with a Tom Brady jersey. Pratt will be doing that, but Chris Evans decided to also get in on the fun and he’ll not only be visiting a Boston children’s hospital but he’s going to Seattle too. Two guys who play superheroes being actual superheroes in real life. Great stuff.
