Since making his television debut on Parks and Recreation, Pratt has progressed through the ranks of Hollywood, earning the part of Star-Lord in James Gunn’s blockbuster film Guardians of the Galaxy. Following his debut in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and 2, Pratt has gone on to star in a number of high-profile projects, including the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vols. 1 and 2, Avengers: Infinity War/Avengers: Endgame, and the Jurassic World trilogy. His most recent picture, The Tomorrow War, has been given the green light for a sequel, and with the release of The Terminal List on the horizon, the actor is on his way to becoming a household name.
It’s no surprise that wages are increasing as television and streaming take up more and more space in Hollywood. In most cases, unless the production is spearheaded by a renowned producer, the back-end negotiations for talent will not be the same as they would be for a feature film. The decreasing box revenue and the increasing number of day-and-date releases in the age of Covid-19 are compensating for actors like Dwayne Johnson by getting a hefty advance salary. It is now a race against time to get A-list talent, such as Pratt for The Terminal List, and retain them well paid in order to ensure the industry’s ongoing growth, which shows no indications of slowing down any time soon.
