The Star Trek actor opened up about his role as Captain James T Kirk, saying that he tries not to let himself feel pressured while shooting a highly-anticipated film like Star Trek 2.
"Those big films are scary things," Pine told Collider. "There's so much money behind those things. There's that hype. You enter a machine.
"If you're a part of that process of whether it's going to fail or succeed, you're only human and you hope that it does well," he continued.
"But, there's only so much, as an actor, that you can do," he explained. "People are either going to respond to it or not, and I would drive myself crazy if I tried to control it anymore than that, other than a really fervent desire that people come and watch it and like it."
Director JJ Abrams recently revealed that he has filmed a number of scenes from Star Trek 2 with IMAX cameras
