CinemaCon Managing Director Mitch Neuhauser praised Pine as one of Hollywood's "hottest and most accomplished young actors " and the ideal recipient of the 'Male Star of the Year' prize.

"With this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness, the eagerly anticipated follow-up to 2009's Star Trek, and then at year-end, the release of Jack Ryan, without a doubt 2013 is going to be Chris Pine's year," Neuhauser said.

Past recipients of 'Male of Star of the Year' include Ryan Reynolds and Jeremy Renner.
