Chris attended yesterday’s premiere of the new thriller movie “Cloverfield” in Los Angeles, California. I’ve posted all 50+ photos from the event, all on the red carpet. Chris is pictured with Jennifer Morrison and Zachary Quinto two of his fellow cast mates from latest Star Trek movie that they are currently filming which is due out in December of this year.

HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today) Stardate – Chris Pine, who plays the young Captain James T. Kirk in the upcoming $150 million movie “Star Trek,” is starting the new year with his own five year mission. To boldly go where few actors get the chance to go, or dare to.
“It brings a big responsibility,” Pine said on the importance of being Kirk, whom generations of fans know as intimately as a family member. “It’s not your standard tentpole movie. It has a 40-year history attached to it. These are iconic roles that have been done, and done well,” he told Hollywood Today.
It is indeed a big responsibility, and one that will be judged under a microscope. Trekkies are the most rabid of all fans, have always had the largest conventions, most enthusiastic collectors and those who will examine every nuance, line and action of their revered Captain Kirk and the cadet who dares to play him. Not only against how William Shatner played it on TV and film, but against the canon of Trek lore, which adherents believe in almost religiously.
An informal radio survey once reported that a third of the people polled believe the government is capable of producing warp drives, or already has. This is indicative that fantasy passes to belief if you’ve seen it on TV and movies often enough since you were a kid.
I can finally answer many of your questions when you asked if or when Blind Dating was coming to DVD. Well I can now tell you it comes out on DVD February 5th, 2008. Just a little over a month to be exact but, hey why wait?! you can pre-order it now.
What is Blind Dating about: A hilarious comedy about Danny (Chris Pine), an intelligent, confident, handsome young man who also happens to be blind. Not that he’s letting that hold him back — for the most part, Danny refuses to let his visual impairment get in the way of anything. Which is why Danny’s girl-crazy, limo-driving brother Larry (Eddie Kaye Thomas, AMERICAN PIE) is horrified to discover that Danny is not only shy and nervous when it comes to the opposite sex, he’s also a virgin.
