The 'Star Trek' star is getting well and truly tired of people thinking he is in movies that he isn't, just because he shares his first name with some other Hollywood superstars with similar features and ages. He decided to use his stint as host on this weekend's 'Saturday Night Live' (May 6th 2017) to address the issue.

Wonder Woman Trailer


Diana Prince is a goddess and princess of the Amazons. She lives her life surrounded by strong women who know how to fight, so she is more than fascinated when a US Army Pilot called Steve Trevor washes up on the shore of her island paradise after a plane crash. She nurses him back to health and learns that he is fighting a huge war in the rest of the world, and it's then that she learns her true destiny. She wants to save the world at any cost, and it will cost her dearly. She returns home with Trevor and learns the ways of the women in his life, particularly those of his kooky secretary Etta Candy, but she uses her magical weapons and out-of-this-world fighting skills to protect her new friends and end the war for good.

Star Trek Beyond Review

Excellent

This is where the Star Trek franchise officially shifts from thoughtful drama into thunderous action. Fast & Furious director Justin Lin brings a kinetic energy to this third chapter in the rebooted space saga, leaping between chases and battles to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Combined with constant witty interaction, the film is massively entertaining, even if the plot ultimately feels a bit thin.

 

It's been three years since the crew of the Enterprise started their five-year mission, and they're in need of a break. So they head to the nearest spaceport for some down-time, which is soon interrupted when Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and his team (Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Anton Yelchin) are called to travel through a dangerous nebula to rescue a kidnapped crew from a villainous thug called Krall (Idris Elba). On arrival, the Enterprise is overwhelmed by Krall's bee-like military swarm. Stranded on a strange planet, the crew teams up with Jaylah (Sofia Boutella), a feisty survivor of one of Krall's earlier attacks. And as they realise the extent of Krall's evil plan, they're not sure that they can stop him.

The Finest Hours Review

Excellent

With its rousing, old-fashioned tone, this fact-based epic is properly thrilling and inspirational, a tale of heroism that almost seems too good to be true. But it's the astonishing story of a real sea rescue carried out by ordinary men who rose to the challenge. It's also expertly directed by Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm) to bring out subtle character detail amid the exhilarating action.

The events took place in a sleepy Massachusetts fishing town in the dead of winter 1952, where Bernie (Chris Pine) is an earnest Coast Guard sailor who has just agreed to marry his strong-willed sweetheart Miriam (Holliday Grainger). Then one night a fierce storm breaks an oil tanker in half just off the coast, and Bernie is sent by his aloof commander Daniel (Eric Bana) to lead a rescue mission. He takes his colleague Richard (Ben Foster) and two young crewmen (Kyle Gallner and John Magaro) with him, heading into the dangerous sea swells. Meanwhile on the tanker's still-floating stern section, engineer Ray (Casey Affleck) becomes the leader of a cantankerous 32-man crew, steering the wreckage toward the relative safety of a shoal. And in these conditions, the odds are in nobody's favour.

Unusually, despite pitch-black conditions with driving rain and swelling seas, the on-screen action is crisp and clear. Gillespie uses vivid effects and clever camerawork to keep the audience right in the thick of things, conveying a vivid sense of scale while detailing the connections between each string of events. And because we understand what's happening and who these people are, the set-pieces are literally breathtaking. This is partially due to the fact that these are normal people who are very easy to identify with, from Pine's inarticulate but tenacious sailor to Affleck's reluctant natural leader. Intriguingly, Grainger's Miriam is the film's feistiest character, a woman who simply can't sit still and wait for news.

Chris Pine Felt Humbled By His Role In The Finest Hours


Chris Pine

The story immediately caught the attention of actor Chris Pine. "The script starts and pretty immediately you get involved in essentially a rollercoaster ride of human endurance," he says. "It was just a quick, wonderful, dramatic read. The ocean I find is very daunting, frightening, mysterious and powerful. That intrigued me."

Chris Pine stars in Disney's The Finest Hours

He was also drawn to the story because the characters are "honest, solid, blue collar men that go out and do great things and then go home". So Pine decided to play his character "like an old movie star would play a character in a 50s studio film. It was made by Disney, and there's something so earnest and heartfelt and of another era about it. It wasn't brooding or dark or edgy. It was just good storytelling."

While it's clear that Hollywood is enjoying bringing Grimm and Perrault's stories to life with such creations as 'Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters' and the Emmy nominated series 'Once Upon A Time', 'Into The Woods' goes that step further. With an excellent musical score by the Academy Award winning Stephen Sondheim (composer of 'Sweeney Todd', contributor of 'Dick Tracy' and 'West Side Story' lyricist), we're expecting this movie to join that ever-popular brand of Oscar worthy musical cinema.

Star Trek Into Darkness Given The Thumbs Up By (Most) Critics: Review Round-Up


Benedict Cumberbatch Star Trek Chris Pine Jj Abrams

Star Trek Into Darkness took the UK box office by storm this weekend, and judging by the majority of reviews for the film it's easy to see why. Holding a firm 87% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 89% audience rating, the film looks on course to be a great success and is likely to spawn future Trek films too.

Whilst some comment that the film lacks the originality and freshness of it's predecessor, given that it is a sequel this dilema was always likely to occur. But many have found faults in the film besides this, with a number of reviewers harshly criticising the film for varying reasons. The New York Times' A.O. Scott is particularly critical of the style over substance nature of the film, noting that the film "sacrificed a lot of its idiosyncrasy and, worse, the large-spirited humanism that sustained [the series]."

Elsewhere, Liam Lacey of the Globe and Mail was equally critical of the bombastic nature of the film, rather harshly saying that a full viewing of the film is akin to "surviving a long beating."

The crew of Enterprise all looked flawless last night on the red carpet of the Star Trek Into Darkness premiere. Zoe Saldana, who reprised her role as Nyota Uhura from J J Abrams’s 2009 film, graced the premiere in a futuristic looking black and white gown. Unfortunately, the breezy fabric meant she had a couple of brushes with a potential wardrobe malfunction, but at least she looked fabulous throughout. Her co-stars, Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto got decked out in classic ensembles in grey and blue. Newcomer to the series Alice Eve, on the other hand, decided to go with a strapless suede Ermano Servino number and she did not go wrong, looking perfectly polished throughout the night.

So far the love has been spread around between year-end releases like Steven Spielberg's Lincoln, Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty and Ang Lee's Life of Pi, all of which earned key nominations from the Golden Globes last week and the London Critics' Circle Film Awards this week. Perhaps not quite so awards-worthy is the new Tom Cruise action romp Jack Reacher, which opens on Christmas.

Star Trek Into The Darkness Trailer Entices Us Further


Jj Abrams Chris Pine Zachary Quinto

The new teaser trailer for Star Trek Into The Darkness does exactly what it should do: it teases. The film isn't out until the summer of 2013, but these trailers have got sci-fi fans licking their lips at the next instalment of the Star Trek saga. 

In a trailer full of action, which we've come to expect from director Jj Abrams, Pike tell Kirk, "There's greatness in you, but not an ounce of humility.  But there's going to come a moment when you're wrong about that.  And you're going to get yourself, and everyone under your command, killed." The film's synopsis give us our only clues to the plot line, while everything else is garnered from scrutinizing trailers. It reads, "When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

"With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

Video - Chris Pine Snubs The Press At 'People Like Us' Screening


'People Like Us' stars Elizabeth Banks and Chris Pine arrive along with director Alex Kurtzman at the New York screening of the movie. Banks and Kurtzman stop for photos outside the venue but Pine heads straight inside after signing a fan's photo and giving a brief wave to the press who are deeply frustrated with his lack of co-operation.

Pine has starred in a number of Hollywood movies including the 2009 'Star Trek' film in which he played Captain Kirk, 'Unstoppable' and 'This Means War'. He is set to voice Jack Frost in the upcoming animated fantasy 'Rise of the Guardans'

Rise Of The Guardians Trailer


Rise of the Guardians is a spectacularly vibrant CGI motion picture that tells the story of four powerful guardians. Bunny is a cool Australian protector of nature who places Easter eggs around children's gardens for them to find; the Sandman is the dream guardian - he doesn't ever speak but it extremely wise; North is the Christmas guardian and a fierce tattooed warrior; and the Tooth Fairy is an elegant, half-human, half-hummingbird tooth collector - she collects childhood memories and returns them only when they are needed most. All the guardians must unite when the evil boogeymen known as Pitch threatens to take over the world spreading fear in the hearts and imaginations of children.

Carriers Review


Good
Well-made but not particularly inventive, this post-apocalyptic thriller is like a college road movie crossed with Mad Max. The cast is much better than this thin script deserves, but the film does generate some great jolts.

Brainy Danny (Pucci) and his more action-oriented brother Brian (Pine) are driving through Colorado with Brian's girlfriend Bobby (Perabo) and their friend Kate (VanCamp) when they encounter a man (Meloni) who's trying to get his sick daughter (Shipka) to a clinic. She has the highly contagious disease that has killed off almost everyone, so extreme measures are needed to prevent infection. As they continue across the Southwest, heading for a Gulf Coast beach they remember from childhood, they encounter various other survivors and are forced to make some brutal decisions.

Star Trek (2009) Review


Excellent
With one film, J.J. Abrams has made Star Trek younger, flashier, sexier, funnier, and less intelligent, but more exhilarating than it has been in decades. By altering the franchise's storied past, he ignites a fevered barn-burner that's geared toward today's action junkies but also sets the stage for what could be a long and prosperous future.

Abrams' stylized reboot isn't the finest film in the 10-picture series, which dates back to 1979's Star Trek: The Motion Picture. That distinction still belongs to the second Trek feature, The Wrath of Khan, though Abrams and co-screenwriters Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman wisely allow that film to influence most of their creative decisions.

Bottle Shock Review


Good
Though it's hard to believe, over 30 years ago, wines from continents other than Europe (and countries other than France and Italy) were considered crap. Not less palatable or uncertain in quality: Boone's Farm meets Thunderbird. Uncivilized swill. Of course, this wasn't true. Napa Valley, as well as regions in Australia, were creating wonderful vintages. But since the French controlled everything about the culture of the grape, their disdain meant no one took outsider vineyards seriously.

In 1976, all that changed. During the year of America's Bicentennial, a British merchant working in Paris came to California looking for participants for his exclusive tasting competition. He hoped to raise awareness of his failing shop and solidify his place in the snobbish wine society. Instead, winemonger Stephen Spurrier made history, and his accidental discoveries sent international palettes into something akin to Bottle Shock. Now, decades since the U.S. became part of cultured world cuisine, director Randall Miller offers up a serio-comic take on the event, and for the most part, it's as tasty as a well-aged Burgundy.

Blind Dating Review


OK
Here's a description of Blind Dating for you to imagine: it's American Pie meets The Miracle Worker with a dash of Scent of a Woman and just a touch of Missisippi Masala. Got it?

Danny (Chris Pine), a good-looking young man who happens to be blind, doesn't want anyone's pity and doesn't really need it. Bolstered by a loving family and the support of his perpetually horny brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas), he's making his way through life just fine and can even often get from point A to point B without using a cane.

Surrender Dorothy (2006) Review


Good
A Diane Keaton star vehicle produced as a made-for-cable original, Surrender Dorothy is a pleasure for fans of the always interesting Keaton even if its roots as a chick-of-a-certain-age-lit novel sometimes show through.

As a group of 30-ish friends gather Big Chill style for a month in the Hamptons, they can't know tragedy awaits. The core of the group is the enchanting Sara (Alex Davalos), the lifelong muse of her best friend, gay writer Adam (Tom Everett Scott), who shows up with his boyfriend Shawn (Chris Pine). Also in the group: Sara's school chums, Maddy (Lauren German) and her husband Peter (Josh Hopkins), along with their new baby.

Just My Luck Review


Bad
When I've mentioned to people that I like Lindsay Lohan, the actress, I've gotten the same looks as if I've said I like the taste of light bulbs. Though she's become a staple in Us Weekly because of her partying ways and the fluctuating weight, it's easy to lose sight that her talent, not her figure, got her in the door. Does anyone remember Freaky Friday? Anyone? With the right script, she can shine. I stand by that.

My job will become that much harder if the 19-year-old keeps appearing in fare like Just My Luck. Lohan stars as a P.R. agent living a life in which good luck sticks to her like dandruff. Give her a lottery ticket to scratch, she'll win something. One elevator door closes; another one opens. Meanwhile, elsewhere in New York City, a young music promoter (Chris Pine) has nothing but bad luck, which we find out courtesy of a drawn-out sequence.

The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement Review


Bad
How's this for timing: Almost three years to the day after the release of the original The Princess Diaries, and on the heels of its sparkling new special edition DVD, we get the follow-up Diaries in theaters! You knew the sequel would eventually follow - after all, we just have to see the little princess take her throne.

Now a college graduate, Princess Mia (Anne Hathaway) has returned to her home country of Genovia to celebrate her 21st birthday. According to Genovian law, she is eligible to replace her widely popular grandmother (Julie Andrews) as the queen. Unfortunately for the young Mia, the law also states that a princess must be married before she is crowned. Complicating matters further, Viscount Mabrey (John Rhys-Davies) demands that his nephew Sir Nicholas (Chris Pine) is the rightful heir to the throne. What's a princess to do?
