In November the Star Trek theatrical trailer raised some eyebrows with a couple of brief shots of the new crew in some sexy situations. However, somewhat contradictory to a previous comment of his, the new Kirk now says that Star Trek does not cross the line. Details below, plus Chris reveals who he has a man crush on.
It’s trying to be sexed up for a new generation that really isn’t used to seeing Star Trek. It’s a whole new beast.
But now in a new comment to E! at the Golden Globes over the weekend, Chris has dialed that back a bit, saying:
It is a different Star Trek, but there’s no crazy sex scene. There may be some bare midriffs, but you know it’s been a long time since the bikini was invented, so I don’t think we’re going to ruffle any feathers.
Of course sexy scenes are nothing new to Star Trek, especially on Star Trek Enterprise. The new Star Trek film is likely to get a PG-13 rating, but that is not a Trek first. Two out of the last three Trek films had PG-13 ratings (First Contact and Nemesis), and some of us are still trying to forget the love scene in that last movie.
Pine’s man crush
Speaking of possible crazy scenes, Chris has a few quotes in this Golden Globes after party video from HollyScoop.com, including his confession that he has a “man crush” on Alec Baldwin.
