Chris Pine, whose career may rocket to the stratosphere with his role as Captain James Kirk in Paramount's May relaunch of the Star Trek franchise, is being honored by ShoWest 2009 as Male Star of Tomorrow.
Pine will be honored at an April 2 awards gala which will close the ShoWest exhibition. ShoWest is a movie theater trade show that runs from March 20 at the Bally's and Paris hotels in Vegas and concludes on April 2. It's the largest and most important gathering of theater operators. ShoWest's co-managing director claimed that Pine is being recognized with an award that looks at "major talents at the earliest points in their rising careers." In addition to Star Trek, Pine has also starred in Smokin' Aces.
