Chris Pine On Star Trek 2
Star Trek’s retake of a pop-culture phenomenon took the fantastical story it’s based on, but chose to follow its own path. In creating an alternate universe for the Star Trek character, director J.J, Abram’s left himself room for a sequel full of endless possibilities…
Opening after Batman Begins, Star Trek went with a lighter tone. Christopher Nolan‘s Wayne skulked in the shadows, while J.J. Abram‘s Kirk lived brightly in the world, hiding none of his vibrant character.
“We’re not making Batman. That’s not our deal,” Pine stated.
“There’s comedy, which I think J.J. does a great job of, but, like the first one, there’s some serious issues being dealt with. And I’d say the threat is even greater in this one.”
“The force [the Enterprise crew] are met with is much more frightening. It’s relentlessly action-packed and in terms of character development it goes places you’d never expect. The arc is huge for all the characters. It’s a really big story – I can’t hype it enough!”
Star Trek 2 will be released on May 17, 2013. Let the hype building begin…
