The new captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise is meeting with the approval of theater owners nationwide. Chris Pine has been selected as the Male Star of Tomorrow by the members of ShoWest, the annual gathering for the National Association of Theater Owners. Pine will accept his award on April 2.
Every year the members of NATO select a male and female actor that they believe will turn into a powerful box office draw in the years to come. Past award winners have included Shia LaBeouf (Transformers), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Hayden Christensen (Revenge of the Sith), Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight), Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls), Emma Roberts (Hotel For Dogs), Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married) and Alison Lohman (Beowulf).
Pine's new movie, Star Trek, opens on May 8.
