Wrangling velociraptors is no easy feat. Neither is running from a furious Indominux Rex. That's why lesson number one from Chris Pratt's Stunts 101 book is "always warm up." Cracking your joints and stretching is imperative to nailing a challenging stunt-filled scene. He doesn't (and can't) run 65 miles an hour, but he sure makes the process look fun.

If you appreciated Chris's dance moves and snappy wit in Guardians of the Galaxy, you'll love how candid he is in this behind-the-scenes clip from Jurassic World. Watch it above.

In an interview with GQ, the 35-year-old elaborated on his knack for improvisation.

"I always had thought my strongest ability was improvisational comedy," he said. "I was always adding stuff to scenes and the directors would be like, 'Come on, man, no, don't do that.' And then that stuff would make the cut. And I was like, 'I knew it! I knew I was funnier than that stupid fucking director, and he didn't know what the fuck he was talking about! I knew it!'"

Following the success of last year's Marvel blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris has plenty more to look forward to including next month's release of Jurassic World. Moreover, he hinted that he could be starring in more Marvel films.

"I'm tied to doing three more, or five more, Guardians of the Galaxy or whatever it is, you know, two more Guardians plus another couple," he revealed.

Mix that in with the rumours that Chris will be the next Indiana Jones in a possible Disney reboot, and we've got ourselves a very busy man.
