Unstoppable racked up just over $80 million at the domestic box office this past fall and over $137 million worldwide. It has helped solidify Chris Pine as a bankable action star in Hollywood.
Distributor Fox has yet to formally announce Unstoppable’s home video release (though may do so as early as later today) but multiple retailers are reporting the same release date. Without the announcement I don’t have any bonus features or additional information to share at this time.
HE HASN’T even been in the business a decade yet, but Chris Pine has had his fair share of horror auditions.
I had one casting director stop me and say, ‘All right, now do it again and make me believe you’,” he recalls with a traumatised laugh.
“That was half of what she said, but also the tone that I can’t really recreate. It was just about the most miserable feeling on the planet.
“I just interpreted that as like, ‘OK, stop sucking, and try to be talented’.
“At that point you’ve lost, at that point it becomes not about the material at all, it becomes about your personal beef, and that’s never what it should be.
“The audition room is one of the most awkward, uncomfortable places to be, period. I don’t even know how producers do it, quite honestly.”
But an actor’s gotta do what an actor’s gotta do.
“Yup,” agrees Pine, “par for the course. Born masochist.”
I’ve added 146 HD captures of Chris from his appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show from earlier today.
I’ve added 210 HD captures of Chris from his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! from last night. If you missed it, be sure to check out the video below.
Last year, up-and-coming actor Chris Pine was transported to a new frontier, professionally, when he played the leading role of a young Captain Kirk in the blockbuster feature film, “Star Trek.”
Now in his first movie since becoming a much sought-after Hollywood commodity, Pine has chosen to star opposite a high speed train in filmmaker Tony Scott’s adrenaline-fueled flick, “Unstoppable.”
But it was less the movie and more his chance to work with two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and director Scott that Pine said was the real catalyst to climb aboard the thriller about a runaway train.
“No matter what I was doing, I was constantly overwhelmed by the fact that I was working with two people who for so long seemed out of my reach,” Pine told Reuters. “That, for me, trumped everything else.”
Due in theaters on Friday, “Unstoppable” sees Washington play a veteran engineer and Pine a rookie conductor who are paired together on the latter’s first day on the job.
When an unmanned, out-of-control train carrying hazardous material heads toward a populated area at 150 miles per hour, the duo must race against the clock to stop it.
Pine holds his own opposite the powerful Washington, but he knows he is still considered a newcomer when cast against a veteran. He also is aware that the opportunity to star in “Unstoppable” came his way because of “Star Trek.”
I’ve added 202 HD captures of Chris from his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno which aired last night. And in case you missed it I’ve added high quality video below.
Also, don’t forget Chris will be on Jimmy Kimmel Live! later tonight.
Chris Pine catapulted from rising star to bona fide leading man with his performance as James T. Kirk in Star Trek (2009) and, following the blockbuster success of that first film in the rebooted franchise, the young actor faced a major decision: what to do for an encore. He chose Unstoppable, a heart-stopping thriller directed by Tony Scott and co-starring Denzel Washington. Pine and Washington play a newbie conductor and an experienced engineer, respectively, who race the clock to prevent a runaway train loaded with toxic chemicals from wiping out a Pennsylvania town. StarTrek.com recently caught up with Pine for an exclusive conversation in which he chatted up Unstoppable, which will open nationwide on November 12, discussed his Star Trek experience and contemplated Kirk’s future.
Audiences met your Kirk in the first Star Trek movie. As you move forward now and make the character your own, in what ways do you hope to see the character evolve?
Pine: I don’t know. I look forward to his development and bringing to light all his idiosyncrasies and thinking up new ways to surprise people with this character. I just trust Damon (Lindelof) and Bob (Orci) and Alex (Kurtzman) and J.J. (Abrams) and everybody behind it to create (another) good story, because they’ve already done it. I appreciate Kirk’s humor and I think that’s a legacy from Shatner’s Kirk, from the original and only Kirk, which I would love to bring into the future incarnation.
Zachary Quinto got his shot at working with Leonard Nimoy in the first film. What are your thoughts on having Shatner on board for the next film? Is it a great idea or too much of a stretch since they’d just done something similar with Nimoy?
Pine: It just isn’t, quite honestly, my decision to make. I think Mr. Shatner will forever be Captain Kirk. I think it would be, certainly, an interesting thing to bring him back. I don’t know if he necessarily wants to at this point or not. But it’s not my decision.
A combination of Scott’s filmmaking style and the lack of CGI, in favor of practical sets and real action, contributes to the urgency of the situation from start to finish, taking the audience on an intense, gripping ride. During the film’s press day, co-stars Denzel Washington, Chris Pine and Rosario Dawson, along with Tony Scott, talked about the challenges of making a film like Unstoppable, doing many of their own stunts while on a train going 50 or 60 mph, and getting to meet their real-life heroic counterparts.
