Chris Pratt sort of jumped from TV to movie star but he was also in some movies while doing his TV show. Is it just the exposure in both forms that allowed it to work, just finding the right movie roles, or just him?

Also, every time I read about an actor I seem to find myself surprised at all the connections amongst them. For example, Pratt is the son in law to the terminator. Who knew.

It's a combination of the above, along with Pratt's decision to shed his baby weight, take serious acting classes and make himself presentable as a possible movie star.

Anna Faris played a HUGE role in his transformation but let's not forget that Pratt was not the star of Parks & Rec.

Who knew? Anyone and everyone that pays even a tiny bit of attention to Hollywood actors and actresses. I mean, he married into the Kennedy family.

Doesn't seem difficult at all honestly.

They've been doing it with Tom Cruise his whole career. I was shocked to learn that Robert Downey Jr and Daniel Craig are both 5'9"ish as well.

Hell, Dane schooled me to the fact that Arnold Schwarzenegger is likely only around 5'10". That was a real mindfuck.

Good point about him not being the star. Probably prevents him from being typecast in peopleís minds. I didnít watch the show much but from what I gather it also let his personality shine a bit more as opposed to like a Kit Harrington who just had to play a no nonsense all business guy.

Okay so now heís part of the Kennedy family? Yes, I had to look up how. :-)

The first two you can sort of tell just on their build and I think Cruise specifically was one of the first most talked about examples I heard where people talked about the camera tricks. But Craig I hadnít noticed. And Schwarzenegger? I had no idea, never crossed my mind, and yeah Iím floored by that one as well.

When short actors are paired with taller actors, the shorter actors have to wear lifts in their shoes or stand on a platform.

If a shorter actor is paired with a taller female, same rule applies and the shots are usually blocked in such a way that it won't take people out of the scene.

I am unknowledgeable on the ETERNALS. Never heard of this and had to actually research to be informed. Saw this trailer breakdown and thought it was educational...

I'm going to see it because I see all of them, but it does seem like they're keeping everything super-vague. I'm also concerned that Marvel is moving SO MUCH to the outer-space acid-trip Liquid-Sky-like parts of the Marvel world that people aren't going to see anyone they can identify with in the central roles.

I mean, this was the final trailer and they still haven't even hinted at Black Knight, an actual human who is apparently in this movie.

This is something I always enjoyed in the comics (though i haven't read comics as they dropped in 30 years, so things may have changed). As much as a universal story was told across multiple series, they weren't constant. You'd get an arc across each character at different times for maybe 2 or 3 issues. The main story characters could go for a year, but there was always the "normal" stuff for other characters. I really liked the Defenders series on Netflix for this during the MCU Infinity events. As much as I enjoyed WV and Loki, it would be nice to have a few shows that are more or less disconnected. I know many people weren't happy with FtWS, but I enjoyed it for being more of a stand alone arc.
