'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit'
Jack Ryan (Chris Pine), the character created by novelist Tom Clancy, is back and yes folks, you've seen him before - many, many times. Aka the CIA wonder played by Alec Baldwin (Hunt for Red October). Then there was my favorite Jack Ryan type; Harrison Ford ('Patriot Games' and 'Clear and Present Danger'); followed by my not so favorite, Ben Affleck (The Sum of all Fears).

In 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,'  directed by Kenneth Branagh and written by David Koep along with Adam Cozad, we meet Ryan at the beginning of his career.  

The date is September 11, 2001. Ryan, a student at the London...

Pine worked with Lohan in 2005 on the film Just My Luck, and he tells The Hollywood Reporter in an interview, “It was a real cyclone of insanity, like being around The Beatles.

“It was fascinating to watch, and in hindsight it’s really a distinct moment in someone’s life when you see what’s really wonderful about what we get to do and what’s really dangerous about it.”

Pine also says his private nature has been difficult, especially following his big roles in the Star Trek series.  “The lig...

Pine plays Captain Kirk in the sequel to J.J. Abrams' 2009 Star Trek movie. Last month, the actor confessed that he wasn't a "Star Trek" fan growing up.

He told Britain's Esquire magazine: "(Making) Star Trek scared me a lot. It terrified me, really. Because of the scale, the responsibility, the fact that it was this iconic character. It was the bigger challenge. So I had to take it."

Chris Pine
Actor Chris Pine baulked when he was invited to audition for J.J. Abrams' 2009 Star Trek movie, calling the sci-fi reboot "the furthest thing" from the dramatic parts he dreamed of tackling.

The Hollywood hunk was initially uninterested in joining Abrams' cast because he felt desperate to sink his teeth into a challenging script.

He tells Britain's Esquire magazine, "I wasn't a fan of Star Trek. It didn't excite me. All I wanted at that time was a part that I really connected to and when my agent said Star Trek, I said, 'No! Have you not been hearing anything I've said? Star Trek is the...

12/18/2012 3:05pm EST
Star Trek Into Darkness
The second official trailer for next Spring's highly-anticipated Star Trek sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, is finally out -- and this second glimpse of the film gives us a little bit more to go on in terms of what it's about.

Well, not really.

It does focus on Kirk (Chris Pine) and some major decisions he'll have to make that could put the lives of himself and his crew on the line, according to the voiceover from Captain Pike (Bruce Greenwood).

There's still no clues as to who Benedict Cumberbatch's bad guy is, only that he's a pretty ominous force and some serious s--t is going down.


Extra Frames In Japanese Version Of 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Teaser May Hold Clues To The New Bad Guy's Identity

12/6/2012 6:51pm EST
Star Trek Into Darkness
The first trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness finally has a trailer, which debuted this morning, and it promises plenty of action, but gives little explanation of who Benedict Cumberbatch's bad guy is or what his motivation will be.

J.J. Abrams' much-anticipated sequel to the 2009 reboot of the series promises an "unstoppable force of terror" and a "one man weapon of mass destruction", but gives little more than that in both the official synopsis, released last week, or in today's "announcement video" (neither a trailer nor a teaser, according to Paramount Pictures).

Star Trek Into Darkness
The first trailer for J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated Star Trek Into Darkness, debuted this morning and it promises plenty of action in the sequel to the 2009 reboot of the series, but offers little to go on in terms of what it's about.

There's not much more than is known already via the brief, official synopsis of the film; which only shares that an "unstoppable force of terror" from within Starfleet has risen and destroyed the organization and everything for which it stands. A "one man weapon of mass destruction" (Benedict Cumberbatch) is hunted by Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) after the Ent...

New 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Poster Released, First Trailer Debuts Dec. 6

12/4/2012 9:31pm EST
Star Trek Into Darkness
The first artwork for next year's Star Trek sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, debuted online this week Paramount Pictures' new teaser poster for the film looks awfully familiar.

The highly anticipated sequel to J.J. Abrams' 2009 series reboot looks very similar to the artwork for The Dark Knight Rises, but instead of looking straight up and seeing the bat logo silhouetted in crumbling buildings, this time around we get the Starfleet logo blown out the side of a building (also quite reminiscent of 9/11) with a lone man (Kirk? Spock?) looking out over a city in ruin.

British actor Benedict Cumberbatch grabbed a role in the upcoming Star Trek thanks to an audition tape recorded on an iPhone.

The War Horse star heard director J.J. Abrams was interested in casting him as the lead villain in the follow-up to his 2009 blockbuster, so he came up with an oddball idea to have a friend film his try-out on his smart phone late one night.

He tells the New York Times, "I was pretty strung out, so that went into the performance."

He submitted the clip to Abrams only to be told by an assistant that the filmmaker was on vacation.
