Chris Pine Talks STAR TREK 2; "We're Not Making Batman."
Chris Pine (This Means War) talks briefly about the tone of J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated sequel, promising fans that they won't be taking a darker route despite the fact that the crew of the Enterprise will be met with a, "much more frightening" threat.
In an interview with Total Film Magazine, Chris Pine (Kirk) has shared his thoughts on the tone of the highly anticipated sequel. Nowadays, it's fairly commonplace for sequels to take a darker route, but according to the actor, that won't be the case in J.J. Abrams' highly anticipated follow-up to the 2009 smash hit. As you can see, he also comments on the threat that the crew of the Enterprise will be facing off against (presumably led by Benedict Cumberbatch's 'Gary Mitchell'). Star Trek 2 is set to be released on May 17th, 2013.
"We're not making Batman. That's not our deal. There's comedy, which I think J.J. does a great job of, but, like the first one, there's some serious issues being dealt with. And I'd say the threat is even greater in this one. The force [the Enterprise crew] are met with is much more frightening. It's relentlessly action-packed and in terms of character development it goes places you'd never expect. The arc is huge for all the characters. It's a really big story - I can't hype it enough!"
