Chris Pratt Shares 'Illegal' Video From The Set Of Avengers: Endgame


Chris Pratt has shared a video from behind the scenes of Avengers: Endgame that he has described as 'really illegal'.

The actor, who plays Star Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy films (and the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe) posted the video to his Instagram account.

The video shows a whole load of his co-stars on the set while filming one of the film's key scenes. Crucially, it revealed that some of the characters who were thought to have died in the previous movie Infinity War were still involved in the action.

Sharing the video, Pratt said: "I remember being blown away in this moment on the @avengers set. Nobody was allowed to film anything on their phones.

"I said screw it. No rule was going to stop me from seizing this once in a lifetime opportunity to capture this collection of stars, a group that likely will never be in the same room again.

"We are so blessed."

That's fair enough, then. Although, they were actually filming it for the movie, so that would have been proof enough.

The video shows us a galaxy of stars gathered to film the blockbuster climax to this chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Among those present are Dave Bautista (Drax), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye/Ronin), Chris Evans (Captain America), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes), Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr Strange), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Tom Holland (Spider-Man) and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man).

That's a lot of mega-movie talent, right there.

Pratt's camera pans across the whole set, before settling on actor Sean Gunn (Kraglin), who says: "I'm pretty sure I'm the most famous person here."

The Guardians star behind the camera then adds: "This is a really illegal video."

Well, he doesn't seem to have got into any trouble afterwards. To be fair to him, you'd want a memento of the occasion if you ever got the chance to be in a room like that.

As for the film itself, it seems to be doing pretty well.

Actually, that is a massive understatement. In just one weekend the film brought in $1.2bn (£929.26m) at the box office.

It's smashed all sorts of records in the process. Endgame is the fastest film ever to take $1bn at the box office, pulled in $350m at the US box office alone, and was responsible for four out of every five tickets sold in America.

Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn told Variety: "Kevin Feige and the Marvel Studios team have continued to challenge notions of what is possible at the movie theatre both in terms of storytelling and at the box office.

"Though Endgame is far from an end for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, these first 22 films constitute a sprawling achievement, and this weekend's monumental success is a testament to the world they've envisioned, the talent involved, and their collective passion, matched by the irrepressible enthusiasm of fans around the world."

Avengers: Endgame is in cinemas worldwide now.
