‘Kamloops is so beautiful’: Chris Pratt mesmerized by the River City

One of the biggest movie stars in the world is gushing over Kamloops.

Chris Pratt is in British Columbia to film bits and pieces of Jurassic World 3 in various locations around the province.

On Tuesday, Pratt happened to be driving through Kamloops when he just had to take to his Instagram story to share how much he was loving the River City.

“Kamloops, British Columbia is so beautiful. Good lord, that sun, wow,” he said, referring to the gorgeous sunset lighting up the sky over the hills.

Pratt will be filming Jurassic World 3 for the next 100 days and we’re unsure where in BC that will take him, but some of the movie's scenes will be shot in Merritt.

If those scenes include Pratt, there’s a chance he might be passing through a NowMedia market like Kamloops, Kelowna or Penticton before his time in BC is done.
