Chris Explains What Sets Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Apart From Other Spy Movies

Here are some snippets from the special event and what Chris had to say about the next installment in the Jack Ryan series along with a little tidbit about his role in Into The Woods.

You can read the entire clip recap and interview with Chris over at CinemaBlend.com

CinemaBlend.com — At a special event in New York City, Paramount Pictures invited journalists to watch 17 minutes of the finished film, which will hit theaters early next year. Pine himself had flown in from Los Angeles to emcee the screening, and was on hand to answer questions. “Jack is really an analyst,” Pine offered in his introduction. “He can get physical, but is much more comfortable behind the scenes.” He went on to point out that Jack Ryan is no James Bond, who is never anything but cool in the face of certain death. Pine stressed that instead Ryan is a pretty normal guy thrown into an extraordinary situation, and this was quite clear in the first clip.

The scene began in a bustling airport in Moscow. Jack Ryan (Pine), dressed in a sharp suit, introduces himself to Embee, a Ugandan bodyguard/”fancy driver” who has been tasked with watching out for him while he’s in Russia. Nonso Anozie plays the jovial driver, and Game of Thrones fans will know him as Xaro Xhoan Daxos, the duplicitous merchant of Qarth. A hulking man at 6’6″, Anozie towers over 6-foot-even Pine as they enter a swanky, modern hotel with garish red furniture and lit up floor panels.

In a luxurious suite, Ryan is taking in the incredible view when he spies in the window’s reflection Embee has pulled out a gun. Instinctively, Ryan ducks and flees to the bathroom as the huge would-be killer blocks the door to the hallway. A brawl ensues that seems to put Ryan at the disadvantage. After all, he is far smaller and lacks a weapon. But his training (we’re later told he’s a marine) kicks in. Ryan utilizes his surroundings to his advantage, taking Embee by surprise, knocking him off balance, and ultimately ending the giant in a desperate bid to save his own life.

Pine pulls off the physicality of the complicated fight choreography with aplomb. Afterwards he said of the stunt work, “I think any actor you talk to, it just seems like part of the component of doing an action film is that you try to do as much of it as you can. I enjoy it because, for instance, the fight scene that you saw, it’s like a dance so there’s like a Zen to it. You have to be really, really focused because you’re moving at really high speeds and there’s kind of a beauty to it because your world just kind of closes down, your vision is about that wide.” He pulled his two hands together to suggest a sort of tunnel vision. He went on to detail how some stunts he didn’t attempt not just for his own safety but for the safety of his scene partner. Best to call in a professional in situations like that. ?Whenever possible, though, he was game. “I enjoy it and I also think it’s important because it allows the camera all those little itty bitty moments of seeing your face. It just, again, kind of gives a reality to it.”

Another challenge Pine faced was having to tone down the big emotions he’d grown accustomed to playing as Captain Kirk. “Kirk’s fun because he’s such a blowhard and also tonally in that film I can be a little bit bigger and there’s comedy and you can go a little bit broader and I love, love that,” Pine explained. “And this, Ken kept on asking me to go smaller and it’s very difficult for me because I’m very used to kind of being, you know, the brash thing, whatever. It was hard. It was difficult to kind of cut as much as I could out of everything and Ken kept on saying we just wanted to rest the camera on your face and see a man thinking and processing what’s happening. I’m not very comfortable with that. I kind of want to do something and he kept on telling me to stop it.”

Asked if part of the appeal of his current project, the musical Into the Woods, was the return to big emotions, Pine responded, “Yeah. That was really more because it was such an incredible cast and I don’t have a very big part, but I just wanted to be a part of that group. And I never sung before – I mean, on camera. I sing in the shower… But yeah, it’s fun. The Prince Charming is very kind of fairy tale-ish and two-dimensional and big hair. I mean, it was a blast. I love that stuff. “

Chris Named One of People Magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive!

People.com — We’ve always admired Star Trek’s Captain Kirk for his piercing baby blues and – sorry, lost our train of thought there. But as it turns out, Pine is more than a pretty face. The Cal grad, 33, is an eloquent speaker, telling Out this year, “I think there is a growing homogenization of what masculinity means.” And he also values brainpower in a woman. “I think after the initial attraction kind of dies down, the lust dies down, there has to be the thing that engages you and that is intelligence and humor,” he told Ellen DeGeneres of what he wants in a partner.

Chris Pine Takes Dating Advice from His Mom

Apparently Chris now knows to treat every woman like a queen. Find out more below!

Cosmopolitan.comYou’ve become the go-to guy for big action—Star Trek, This Means War, Jack Ryan. Are you an adrenaline junkie? I get a lot of my kicks doing these films. I do stuff for my job that I did playing make-believe as a boy in my backyard. But I’m not a dummy—if I sense something could permanently injure me, I step away and let the professionals do it.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given about dating? My mom always told me to take my elbows off the table, so that if I ever had dinner with a queen, I would know how to eat properly. But she also taught me basic things about being a gentleman, like opening car doors. Especially in Los Angeles, I think people lose those small gestures that harken back to a different time but are still mutually appreciated by men and women. Those little things are just nice.

Do you think online dating has ruined chivalry? No, I have a couple of buddies who use Tinder. Whatever eases the process is great, since it can be awkward and uncomfortable meeting someone. It’s the same jumping-off point—”Oh, she’s cute” or “He’s cute”—and then you start talking. Ultimately, it comes down to the connection you have with that person once she’s in the room.

Best date ever? I saw the Rolling Stones seven or eight years ago. I was with my girlfriend, and we were five rows from the front. I remember Ronnie Wood was walking back to the stage, and he looked at me and my girlfriend and then he flipped us his guitar pick! We never found it because it was intercepted by about 50 hands, but it was still a pretty awesome moment.

You worked with Lindsay Lohan on Just My Luck. Any words of advice? She’s had a rough go of it. I’m sure the trials and tribulations that she’s been through have taught her plenty. Our business loves comeback stories. From Drew Barrymore to Robert Downey Jr., there’s a long list of people who have faced their troubles, wildly overcome them, and succeeded. If anyone can do that, it’s Lindsay.
