Tag: Chris Pine (1-10 of 16)
Though author Tom Clancy sadly passed away this week at the age of 66, his literary-to-cinema-legacy lives on.
His most iconic character, Jack Ryan, returns to the big screen this holiday season. (Probably.) Subterfuge, high-caliber explosions, and geopolitical intrigue are all jam-packed in the new trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.
Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the reboot stars Chris Pine as Ryan, a CIA analyst thrust into the field once he uncovers a nefarious Russian plot against the United States economy. In the trailer, Ryan tells his CIA handler Harper (Kevin Costner) “You know, you sold this as an office job.” But Ryan finds it’s anything but a simple cubicle life, as his career affects those closest to him, like fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley).

The latest stars to be subjected to “yes, but can they sing?” scrutiny: Heartthrobs Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pine, potentially. EW has confirmed that Gyllenhaal is in talks to join Disney’s film adaptation of Into the Woods, the 1987 Stephen Sondheim musical about interwoven fairy tales. Deadline writes that Pine, too, is in talks for the film, though his rep would not confirm the news.
The actors are up for the roles of Cinderella’s Prince and Rapunzel’s Prince. There’s no word yet on which would be playing which. (Cinderella’s Prince is the bigger part, though.)
If their deals go through, Gyllenhaal and Pine will join a cast that already includes Meryl Streep (The Witch), Gavin & Stacey‘s James Corden (The Baker), and Johnny Depp (The Wolf, a role traditionally played by the same actor as Cinderella’s Prince in stage productions). A screenplay reading last October featured actors including Anna Kendrick (Cinderella) and Allison Janney (Jack’s Mother), though there’s no word yet on whether any of those actors will be cast in the film.

• In the midst of the frenzy surrounding the release of Star Trek Into Darkness, Chris Pine has revealed where he’ll boldly go next. EW has confirmed that Pine will appear in comedic thriller Stretch, a project that reunites the actor with Joe Carnahan, who directed one of Pine’s earliest films, 2006′s Smokin’ Aces. Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) will star in the new film as a down-on-his-luck chauffeur who drives around a mysterious billionaire to get rid of his debt. Details on Pine’s role have not yet been revealed. [The Wrap] READ FULL STORY
What’s a sci-fi action movie without a good high-octane chase scene? It wouldn’t be Star Trek Into Darkness, that’s for sure.
J.J. Abrams’ highly anticipated sequel to his 2009 reboot of the franchise is still three weeks away, but you can get another bite of the Star Trek Into Darkness action now with a new clip from a chase scene in the movie. But don’t be surprised if that bite tastes just as mysterious as all the other promotion Paramount has been rolling out — there are no revelations about the movie’s plot here, but there is an adrenaline-filled spacecraft chase that looks (and sounds) rather like Star Wars, and there are some fun moments with Zachary Quinto’s Spock being characteristically logical and Chris Pine bringing back his daring and defiant Captain Kirk.

The latest clip from Star Trek Into Darkness doesn’t reveal a whole lot more about the general plot, but it does give us a peek onto the bridge of the USS Enterprise.
From the trailers we’ve already seen, we know there will be a lot of peril, and in this scene it’s Spock whose life is in danger at the mouth of an active volcano. Beaming him back to the ship seems impossible, based on what the engineer and pilot are saying. And Bones, the king of real talk, delivers the most dramatic line of the clip: ”He’d let you die.”

As Tom Clancy’s legendary Jack Ryan, Chris Pine is boldly going where no man has gone before — except Alec Baldwin…and Harrison Ford…and Ben Affleck. (But who remembers The Sum of All Fears anyways?) Thus far, we haven’t seen much from Pine’s Jack Ryan, which is still filming. But in case you’re feeling desperate for your next Ryan fix (he did look good on that motorcycle), here are two new images (courtesy of USA Today) of Pine in character, including one featuring Kevin Costner as Ryan’s mentor. (Irony alert: Costner was initially offered the Ryan role that went to Baldwin for The Hunt for Red October.)
Jack Ryan serves as an origin story of sorts for the CIA analyst, who’s previously appeared in Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, and the lackluster Sum of All Fears. The movie centers on a young Ryan as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot headed up by a Russian oligarch played by none other than Kenneth Branagh (who is also the film’s director).

Leave it to J.J. Abrams to release a behind-the-scenes featurette of his new movie that contains basically no new footage and yet is still totally compelling.
In a just-released behind-the-scenes look at Star Trek Into Darkness, director and crew chat about the making-of the sequel in between video clips mostly pulled from the previous trailers. It has the effect of: a) showing you very little new information while also b) reminding you how nice it is to hear Abrams & Co. talk appreciatively about the Enterprise & Co. A play-by-play:
