“Chris Pine has emerged as one of Hollywood’s hottest and most accomplished young actors and CinemaCon is thrilled to honor him as its 2013 ‘Male Star of the Year.’”

“With this summer’s Star Trek Into Darkness, the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2009’s Star Trek, and then at year-end, the release of Jack Ryan, without a doubt 2013 is going to be Chris Pine’s year,” Neuhauser said.
