The first trailer for “Into The Woods” is here, and it gives us pretty much nothing to work with. There’s no singing, which is a little odd considering that this movie is supposed to be a musical. There’s also no Johnny Depp, and about three seconds worth of words. Not impressed so far. I’m already disappointed enough that this movie has been Disneyfied — in its onstage life, “Into The Woods” was always meant to be a fairytale for adults with some not-so-pleasant themes. Since Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, and Anna Kendrick are in the kickass cast, I’m still holding out hope that this movie will be salvageable. Disney, don’t let me down! [DListed]
“I cry all the time—at work, at the shrink’s, with my lady. ‘The Notebook’ killed me. ‘Up’destroyed me. ‘Up’ was like the animated ‘Amour.’”
– Chris Pine admits he loves a good cry in Men’s Health magazine. You’ve got to respect a guy who is comfortable enough in his manhood to let the tears flow. I’ll never stop thinking emo boys are hot. I mean, for godssake, my first boyfriend wore fishnet gloves. Sidebar: Amelia would like me to inform you that Chris Pine, as Captain Kirk, sheds tears in “Star Trek Into Darkness.” She also cried during that particular scene. And a couple others.

The recent wave of hot superhero/sci-fi actors named Chris has our heads spinning a little bit. Let’s see … there’s Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pine, and Chris Evans. They’ve all got incredible physiques, dirty blonde hair, and piercing eyes. We’re constantly mixing them up, so we thought it was time to come up with a Hot Chris Field Guide to help tell them apart. Click through to get the lowdown on each Chris, and feel free to print out this post and keep it in your wallet for easy reference …
I would like to commend the casting directors behind the upcoming film, “This Means War,” for picking Tom Hardy and Chris Pine to star opposite Reese Witherspoon. Rather than picking a couple of super typical Hollywood beefcakes — like Ryan Reynolds or Will Smith — to play a pair of warring CIA operatives, Hardy and Pine aren’t major household names just yet. All that is sure to change on Valentine’s Day, when the film opens nationwide, and America becomes a little more familiar with Tom (who starred in “Warrior” and “Inception”) and Chris (who played Captain Kirk in “Star Trek”).
Hey, that means I suddenly have two dates for V-Day! But who do I prefer? Hmm … it’s a tough choice so let’s battle this out via a good ol’ fashioned face-off, shall?

December’s GQ is the magazine’s “Men of the Year” issue and they’re celebrating with multiple covers. This one is my favorite, featuring the hottest Captain Kirk since, well, William Shatner, “Star Trek”‘s Chris Pine, as their pick for Breakout of the Year. Check out their other covers for men of the year here. Keep reading »
The testosterone-fueled, ruggedly “handsome” screen star as we know him—strong jaw line, brooding eyes, a prominent nose—is on the way out, if the New York Observer is to be believed. Surely, in this post-”Queer Eye” world, it’s no secret that even the Manliest of Manly Men are trimming their facial scruff and plucking their beastly brows. But Irina Aleksader at the Observer wonders if what currently makes girls squeal are…girlie men.

Oh, Chris Pine. Simcha and I are so sorry for doubting you. We didn’t think you had the brawny hotness to play Captain Kirk. We thought you were too pretty to battle the Romulans and woo the ladies with your rough, raw male charisma. But we were wrong. Oh. So. Wrong. Pine captures the essence of Captain Kirk without resorting to a Shatner impersonation, and he brings a whole new level of sexiness to the notorious ladies man character. For long time fans and new converts alike, here’s everything there is to know about the delicious Chris Pine.

So, it’s still nearly six months until the moment Amelia and I have been waiting for — “Star Trek XI” comes out in May 2009! But they’re already Kirk-teasing us (get it?) with two movie trailers. I have to say both of them totally burst my nerd bubble. Ugh, the Captain Chris Pine looks like the kind of tool you accidentally have sex with while on vacation. Only the combination of sun and margaritas would get your guard down enough to do his kind of douche bag. Honestly, I’d rather have sex with 70-something Shatner. But on the up side, Spock is one hot of hunk of space junk! So, maybe, just maybe there’s hope this prequel won’t suck. Above is trailer #2, which at least has some original content. Trailer #1 is just about a boring blow torch. [Star Trek Movie Site]
