Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy in Wanted

Wanted is a 2008 spy thriller starring Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy as assassins who are part of a secret society known as the Fraternity. The film is based on the comic book series by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones, though many of the characters and events from the books were altered for the big screen.

Wanted capitalized on the star power of its leads as well as the pre-established fan base to make a modest box office hit (via Box Office Mojo). Though Pratt does appear in this film, he plays a relatively minor role compared to his projects today, indicating that he benefited from the film's success more than the film benefited from his presence.

Eight years after its release, The Lego Movie is still considered to be one of Chris Pratt's best movies and serves as one of two breakout hits for the actor in 2014, shooting him to superstardom. The film surpassed all expectations, making a sturdy profit at the worldwide box office and kickstarting a franchise of Lego films in its wake (via Box Office Mojo).

Chris Pratt as Star-Lord in Thor Love and Thunder

Thor: Love and Thunder is the fourth film in the Chris Hemsworth-led franchise within the MCU. The movie puts Thor on a collision course with Christian Bale's Gorr the God Butcher, while also including fun cameos from heroes new and old to the franchise. Even the Guardians of the Galaxy appear in the film, making for some of the best scenes therein, including some of Thor: Love and Thunder's best lines.

Love and Thunder debuted to a remarkably lucrative opening weekend, quickly becoming one of the highest-grossing films of the year, though box office analysts couldn't help but notice its extreme drop-off in its second and third weeks (via Box Office Mojo). Nevertheless, excitement from the previous film, Thor: Ragnarok, and the cameos of Star-Lord and the Guardians of the Galaxy certainly aided the fourth Thor film in its box office numbers.

Guardians of the Galaxy defied all odds when it finally opened in 2014. After months of skepticism from fans and critics alike, the film easily resonated with both parties, creating a cultural phenomenon that proved to be one of the biggest successes of Marvel's second phase (via Box Office Mojo). While much of the cast, including Chris Pratt, were far from bonafide stars at the time of the film's release, they would soon be rocketed to superstardom after its success.

The second Guardians of the Galaxy movie improved on the box office numbers of the original film, proving the franchise's longevity (via Box Office Mojo). The film was greatly assisted by the extreme success of its predecessor, which left audiences eager to see the team's next outing.

Though Dominion received mostly negative reviews from critics, the film quickly proved itself to be above reproach for fans, who showed up in droves to watch the third film of the Jurassic World franchise. The film's numbers continue to rise and, while it is still the lowest-earning film in the franchise, Dominion's last weeks in the box office will continue to prove it to be a financial success (via Box Office Mojo).

Along the way, they stumble upon a black market operation seeking to sell dinosaurs to terrorist organizations.

Though Fallen Kingdom received far worse reviews than its predecessor, its box office numbers did not appear to be affected by the critical backlash, making over $1 billion in the worldwide market (via Box Office Mojo). Chris Pratt certainly served as a contributing factor to the film's success, as he had only grown in popularity by the time of the sequel's release.

Jurassic World proved that the fanaticism surrounding Spielberg's original film hadn't died down over the decades. The film opened to one of the biggest debuts of any film ever, before landing itself a position among the top 10 highest-grossing films of all time (via Box Office Mojo). Many believe the film's high earnings are a combined result of nostalgia for the original franchise and the star power of its leads.

Fan anticipation was at an all-time high when Infinity War was finally released, creating one of the biggest opening weekends in box office history and launching the film beyond the rare $2 billion mark (via Box Office Mojo). Much of the excitement regarding the film came from its weaving together of previously separate stories, the most exciting of which proved to be that of the Guardians of the Galaxy, who had never interacted with the other Avengers prior to the film's release.
