New Star Trek Premiere!!!


Lots and lots of very yummy man-candy showed up for the big premiere of the new Star Trek film — in Australia!

The 11th big-screen film in the sci-fi series had its world premiere Tuesday at the Sydney Opera House in Australia in advance of its debut in theaters May 8.

Among the stars on hand: Chris Pine, who takes on William Shatner’s old role as James Kirk; Zachary Quinto, who inherits Leonard Nimoy’s Mr. Spock; Karl Urban, filling the shoes of DeForest Kelley’s Dr. McCoy; and Eric Bana, who plays a villainous Romulan.

Out of admiration for the original Kirk, Pine noted that when he was cast, he wrote Shatner a “letter of introduction and said who I was and what I was doing.”

Heh. I love that Chris Pine did that. I also love that he doesn’t mention William Shatner writing back. I’m sure he was too busy buried in a pool of liquor and cigarettes and reciting the words to “Rocket Man.” Seriously, have you seen that YouTube clip? You MUST see it. It’s here. Go watch the crazy.

So I don’t know much about this Chris Pine kid, but I definitely think he’s a total hottie, and I’m looking forward to seeing him as Kirk, and later, hopefully, in my bedroom. But that’s just me.

  • How do you not know who Chris Pine is? He was in a movie with your beloved LiLo! The one where she is a klutz then bumps him or something and gets all his luck then they make out and switch luck and clumsy again or something. Yeah. He was the only good part of that movie. I think I saw it on TBS. MMMM man-candy!

    Though I know him best from Princess Diaries 2. He was the sexy Prince guy trying to steal her crown but they stole each others hearts. All together now, awww :)

  • I love Karl Urban…and he looks particularly delicious here. I hope this movie elevates his status a bit, and he gets some leading man parts. For those of you who don’t know him, he was the Rider of Rohan in LOTR and the assasin in Bourne Supremacy. Sexy accents all around.

  • WTF is up with all these open-mouth poses (Chris Pine)? It looks ridiculous. Robert Pattinson can’t keep his mouth closed for a picture. Same goes for Christina Hendricks. JLo pulls it off okay, but it’s even getting tired with her.

  • yes, that movie is full of hotties, cant wait to see it
    and the premiere was in Australia which was awesome.
