'Star Trek 2' has extra pressure: Chris Pine
Actor Chris Pine says there is pressure on 'Star Trek 2' to be bigger than the first film. Pine, 32, is reprising his role as James Kirk in the sequel to the 2009 reboot of the sci-fi franchise and said there are a lot more expectations from the film because the previous one was so well received, reported Contactmusic.
"I probably feel the stakes are a bit bigger. The first one, we didn't have much to lose, because we didn't have much to lose! It was either going to be a great big hot and surprise everybody, or it was going to fall the down the drain and no one would've thought twice about it.
"And it just so happened it was pretty well received. So going into this one, I was so excited that we'd brought all these new fans to this franchise that I wanted to do my job to make sure they come back. And I also wanted to do justice to my fellow actors and to the writers, because it's such a good story," he said.
