A new trailer for Chris directorial debut, “Poolman”, has been released exclusively by People Magazine! A new poster has been released as well. The movie will be in theaters on May 10.


Chris Pine is caught up in a criminal conspiracy in his star-studded directorial debut.

PEOPLE has the exclusive trailer for Pine’s Poolman, which he co-wrote, stars in and directs. The trailer shows the star as a Los Angeles pool attendee named Darren Barrenman, who is approached by a mysterious woman (DeWanda Wise) for his assistance with exposing a corrupt politician.

It was a flow state for months. There wasn’t time to think or get in my head,” Pine, 43, tells PEOPLE of directing himself in the movie, which comes more than 20 years after he first began acting in Hollywood. “It was so joyful and the most creative I’ve ever gotten to be on set.”

A synopsis for Poolman describes Pine’s character as “a native Los Angeleno who spends his days looking after the pool of the Tahitian Tiki apartment block and fighting to make his hometown a better place to live.”

“When he is tasked by a femme fatale to uncover the truth behind a shady business deal, Darren enlists the help of his friends to take on a corrupt politician and a greedy land developer,” the synopsis adds. “His investigation reveals a hidden truth about his beloved city and himself.”

Pine says, “We hope you leave the theater with a smile, feeling a little bit lighter than when you came in. Just a moment to escape the day-to-day with a story that delights.”

The star calls his character “a dreamer whose search for love and connection won’t be bullied into submission by a cynical world.”

“I like that kind of optimism and I think audiences will too,” adds Pine.

    Amo a Chris Pine, honestamente conocí su trabajo cuando ví wonder woman y apartir de ahí quedé flechada, sentí una conexión con al ver esos ojos tan hermosos que tiene, dicen que los ojos son reflejo del alma y siento que el posee un alma hermosa llena de luz pero con un vacío en su interior que no lo ha podido llenar la fama ni las mujeres con las que se ha relacionado, verdad lo admiro mucho he visto la gran mayoría de sus trabajos y creo que en realidad más allá de su versatilidad en la actuación tiene un hermoso corazón… Que Dios lo bendiga siempre y grandemente…

    I hope it will do good at the theatre, knowing how terrible the critics were in Toronto.
