Chris Pratt is currently overseas in Europe doing a press tour for Passengers with Jennifer Lawrence, the sci-fi fantasy film which will be released in the United States later this month. As you may be aware, the film stars Pratt and Lawrence as — you guessed it — two passengers aboard a ship traveling to another planet in suspended animation, who accidentally wake up 90 years too early and manage to fall in love while on a mission to discover the mystery behind what’s going on and why they, of all people, were chosen to wake up.
Pretty serious stuff! Not exactly the type of vehicle that allows for Pratt to dust off his comedic chops, so in the meantime he’s settling for pranking his costar and trolling his Instagram followers. It all started two days ago when Pratt relented and gave his fans the above “selfie” with Lawrence that they had all been apparently clamoring for. It’s a nice photo of him, for sure, but somehow poor Jen gets cropped out…
The following day he tried again, informing fans that he was hanging out with his “bestie” Jen, but this time only managed to catch her from behind.
Attempt number three, this time posing with a Spanish YouTube personality.
Earlier today, Pratt posted this video of him… well, I’m not exactly sure what he was doing, but once again Lawrence evades the shot.
The latest troll job was posted just an hour ago, in which Lawrence is partially obscured while drinking a glass of water. Clearly he’s having fun with this, so it’s doubtful he’s finished with his game just yet.
As a bonus pic, here’s Pratt having the clever idea to “touch” the tip of the Eiffel Tower. This guy!

Just had a ground breaking idea to touch the tip of the Eiffel Tower in this photo. I'm pretty proud of it. It just came to me. Haha! I said, "hey I'm about to do something nobody has ever done before. Quick grab a camera" And then I just did it. And then my publicist Allison took the photo. This pose is now legally called a #chrisPratt i have patented it. If you do this pose you can be sued. #passengersmovie
