Chris Pine on Star Trek 2: “It’s Relentless”

Chris Pine on Star Trek 2

Star Trek‘s new Captain James T. Kirk, Chris Pine, has been very busy as of late. Starring in Unstoppable, This Means War, People Like Us and of course the still-untitled Star Trek sequel.

Pine recently told Access Hollywood that the film will surely impress.

“Of course I’m gonna tell you I think it’s gonna be better,” he laughed. “You pick up the characters from where they left off, and the development of the characters — I think — is just as exciting as the first one.

“And it’s relentless,” he added. “I think that’s the best adjective I can use.”

The Star Trek sequel began filming in Los Angeles in January.

“We’re almost done,” he said. “It’s wrapping up very soon. It’s just as action-packed as the first one.”

Pine went on to talk about his role in Rise of the Guardians, an animated feature where he plays Jack Frost, alongside Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman and Jude Law.

“I’m really happy to be a part of it… Alec Baldwin plays a crazy Russian Santa; Hugh Jackman is kind of the Australian acerbic bunny… It’s a good story about childhood and it’s a good story about belief and imagination … and what it means to believe.”

The Star Trek sequel is scheduled to be released on May 17, 2013, starring Chris Pine along with Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg, John Cho and Benedict Cumberbatch.

    Star Trek: Relentless. Sounds like a good title to me!

    It’s NOT Star Trek 2. It’s Star Trek 12.
    2 = TWOK.

      To be precise, TWOK was “Star Trek II”
