GQ "Men of the Year"


Chris Pine + JJ Abrams & Crew Named GQ Men of the Year November 23, 2009 by TrekMovie.com Staff

In yet another mainstream accolade, the December issue of GQ magazine celebrates the return of Star Trek by naming Chris Pine and the Star Trek team as men of the year (in two categories). We have photos below, plus some excerpts and an additional MTV interview with Pine and Abrams.
Trek Team are GQ Men of the Year
GQ names Star Trek’s Captain Kirk Chris Pine as their "Breakout of the Year," and dedicates one of the magazine’s cover to the actor (see below). The GQ Profile (which you can read online) notes "Pine’s sly reinvention of Captain James T. Kirk helped propel Star Trek to the rare trifecta of success among audiences, critics, and geeks."
[...]
The profile quotes Pine, JJ Abrams and Leonard Nimoy in recalling the journey, starting with his reluctance to take the role of Kirk:
[...]
But the Star Trek connections don’t end with Pine. In fact, JJ Abrams and posse were all named the "Power Players" of the year. The magazine profiles JJ Abrams, Damon Lindelof, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Bryan Burk and Carlton Cuse in an article titled "How the Nerds Saved Hollywood" (not yet online), which includes the photo below of the team on a beach.
[...]
Pine and Abrams talk sequel (& Khan) w/ MTV + Damon almost daddy Kirk
And as if the GQ accolades weren’t enough, MTV have a special new "giving thanks" feature and interview with Pine and Abrams. It is worth a read, but here is a quick bit with the pair discussing the sequel…
[...]

The original article at TrekMovie.com can be found here.

Awesome, I do believe that Trek is really back and cooler than ever!

If Star Trek is in GQ, then I demand that Will Riker make a comeback, too.

Re: GQ "Men of the Year"

We've been discussing the GQ appearance for a couple weeks in the Chris Pine thread; there's also a major recognition by MTV News.

Story and video at link.

J.J. Abrams And Chris Pine Have Our Gratitude For Rebooting 'Star Trek'
The director and star are two of the entertainers MTV News is most thankful for in 2009.


With a worldwide box-office haul of $384 million, "Star Trek" was one of the biggest movies of the year. But more important than its cash haul was the mere fact that director J.J. Abrams pulled the franchise from the cinematic dustbin and gave it a sleek, big-budget sheen. "Trek" was finally back, and perhaps it was cooler than it'd ever been. A lot of the credit for the cool factor goes to Chris Pine, who took on the iconic role of James T. Kirk and made it his own. (Cont.)

Thanks for the thread. I have not gone into the "XXX appreciation thread" areas, so this is good news.
