Just wanted to extend a huge thanks to all those who came down for the London Premiere of Star Trek on Monday. It was a fantastic night which culminated in a great party at the Royal Festival Hall. Seeing the movie in the main theatre at the Empire Leicester Square was nothing short of exhilarating. The crowd was pumped, the atmosphere was electric and the sound was turned up to eleven. I still haven’t been able to get the smell of dilithium out of my kilt.

In my ongoing fight against mean spirited journalism, I feel I should wade in and defend my NBF, Chris Pine who according to the British Sun newspaper, “was really annoyed because Simon got all the laughs at the premiere — both during the film and on the red carpet.” He then went on to “shun” the party. Let’s just be clear about this, Chris really isn’t the type to shun; he’s not a shunner and nobody at the party (that he most certainly did attend) felt his enshunment. He actually spent a good hour posing for photos with my family, who for the next 24 hours seemed incapable of saying anything other than, “Chris is lovely, isn’t he?” I’m guessing the story was twisted from generous statements he made on the red carpet about his fellow actors that (horror of horrors) he might have expressed with a hint of irony. Like me saying “damn you Pine you handsome talented bastard!” as I do every night before bed.

Trust me, you are going to love Chris’s Kirk. He demonstrates all the swagger of Shatner and combines it with a lightness and likability which is all his own. If anyone walks off with this movie, it’s The Pine .

Thanks to Carrie for the heads up!
