J.J. Abrams left the 'Star Trek' universe in a bit of a lurch when he agreed to direct 'Star Wars: Episode 7' for Lucasfilm. Up until this point, Team 'Star Trek' has been very diplomatic, saying that Abrams would still be around to produce 'Star Trek 3' and that they wish him the best on 'Star Wars 7.' But 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Chris Pine says he's still "disappointed" that Abrams won't be around to direct 'Star Trek 3.'
We've seen a couple of images of Chris Pine in his 'Jack Ryan' incarnation already (see them here and here) and now we've been handed a couple more. Like the images before them, these are simply using Pine's face to promote the character and movie, which is good enough for us (for now). Check it out the new 'Jack Ryan' pics after the break.
One this year's big holiday films is 'Rise of the Guardians,' which pits Santa Claus (voiced by Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and the Sandman against the slightly satanic Pitch (Jude Law), with Jack Frost (Chris Pine) the newest recruit to the good guy gang of fantasy figures. Now there's a new featurette that lets you get to know Jack Frost.
Yesterday, we got our first look at Chris Pine in the currently shooting 'Jack Ryan.' Jaws dropped around the internet as we learned that Chris Pine will look very much like Chris Pine (on a motorcycle) in the role. It was a slightly underwhelming reveal, but hey, you've got to start somewhere with this whole publicity thing. Today brings us another image from the set and while it doesn't offer too much more, it does offer Kevin Costner, which is enough, really.
Chris Pine is in the process of rebooting his second high-profile character for Paramount Pictures, and 2013 is most likely the year he becomes a household name. We'll see him reprise the role of Captain Kirk in J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek 2' in May, while next winter brings us Pine take on Jack Ryan in, well, ' Jack Ryan.' If you were wondering what the latter character will look like, today's your lucky day, as the first image of Pine-as-Ryan has been revealed.
