I just ran across this video of Chris from this year’s Sundance Festival as he took the time to sit down with Variety. In the interview you hear Chris discuss his role as Bo Barret in “Bottle Shock” and the history behind the Napa Valley Winery’s which the movie is based on. It’s nice to see something recent of him 🙂

In the based-on-a-true story Sundance movie Bottle Shock, Chris Pine stars opposite Bill Pullman as one half of a California wine-making duo whose ”perfect” Chardonnay impressed the merde out of the French at a 1976 blind tasting. The day after the film’s premiere, we cornered young Mr. Pine in the EW photo lounge to chat about his first Sundance experience, as well as some other movie he’s in whose title rhymes with ”Far Schmeck.”

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Are you enjoying Sundance?
CHRIS PINE: I’m only here for a very short time, so I’m going to cram in as much fun as possible. I have to hop on a plane tonight and go back home, unfortunately.

“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.
