Chris Pratt Says Guardians of the Galaxy Will Be The Greatest Movie of the 21st Century



Chris Pratt, playing Star-Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy, is also busy shooting Parks and Recreation for NBC.

While participating in an interview with IGN for the show, Pratt talks about the Guardians movie in a rather fun interview.

Pratt mentions the recent footage that was revealed at Comic-Con, and even though it was put together by James Gunn after only 12 days of shooting, says it’s pretty accurate.

We’re working really hard and I’m in a bit of a daze, but I just can’t wait for people to see what we’re doing out there. I think that footage they showed at Comic-Con is very accurate to the movie that we’re making. I thought that footage was pretty badass. 

Pratt goes on to talk about the tone and theme of the movie; that it’s something major they need to accomplish and offers Guardians of the Galaxy will be the greatest movie of the century.

 I don’t know what to say about it other than it might be…Oh! It’s the greatest movie of the 21st century! That’s what I’ll say. It’ll be the Citizen Kane of movies other than Citizen Kane. 

Chris Pratt continues with mention of the stellar cast and working on the movie.

You know, the novelty of it wears off almost immediately, and it’s overtaken by the idea that we’ve got a ton of f**king work to do. We’re just getting after it. But every once in awhile, you have to stop and look around and take a moment and be like, “Oh my God, this is a moment in time that this may be the greatest film set I’ll ever be on.” So you want to enjoy that.
