Chris Pine and his incredible Hollywood career so far

Over the past two decades, Chris Pine has established himself in Hollywood as a force to be reckoned with. With his versatile range of roles spanning various genres, from the charismatic Captain Kirk to Wonder Woman’s soulmate, Pine has captivated audiences with his undeniable talent. Now, he has brought his charisma (and lute) to the role of Edgin Darvis in Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves.

Fans can now experience Pine’s unmissable performance as Edgin the Bard in his latest critically-acclaimed film from the comfort of their own homes. The unmissable Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves film is available to Download & Keep from 7th July and available on DVD, Blu-ray™, 4K UHD™ and 4K UHD™ + Blu-ray™ SteelBook® from 31st July. To celebrate its release, we’re taking a closer look at Pine’s incredible career, revisiting some of his most notable roles. 

Hailing from a family of actors, it is no surprise that Chris Pine has followed in their footsteps. Like many of today’s big stars, he made his first on-screen appearance in 2003 in ER and starred in episodes of The Guardian and CSI: Miami. After Pine made it to our televisions, he made his film debut in 2004 as the charming Nicholas Devereaux, the love interest of Anne Hathaway’s character in The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. His early career also includes notable roles such as Jake Hardin Just My Luck (2006) alongside Lindsay Lohan, and redneck Darwin Tremor in the action-thriller Smokin’ Aces (2006) but Pine truly garnered worldwide recognition with his big break as James T. Kirk in the rebooted Star Trek franchise (2009, 2013 and 2016). His portrayal of this iconic character solidified his position as a rising star in Hollywood. 

In his latest film, Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves, Pine plays Egin Darvis, a bard who turns to thievery to survive. Pine was the perfect man to step into the role of Edgin the Bard and it’s no surprise that it’s ranked in Rotten Tomatoes’ Top 5 of his best films. Pine has said Edgin played to some of his own strengths, describing him as likeable, incredibly charming and brought positive moral through his singing, even when the world’s falling apart. Pine fully committed himself to the role, making Edgin a richly-developed and well-rounded character who you want to see triumph in his mission to protect his family. Pine has also said that Edgin seems to fit in nicely with the kind of characters he likes to play – “ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances”, who don’t possess any special powers or particularly believe in themselves. Notably, Pine’s only superpowered characters are animated – Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) and Jack Frost, in 2012’s Rise of the Guardians.

With each new role, Chris Pine demonstrates his ability to break through the restrictions of the industry’s expectations for leading men. He inhabits his characters with depth, nuance and a touch of humour, making them complex and compelling figures. With his talent and dedication, and ability to push the boundaries and captivate audiences with his performances, there’s no doubt that his legacy in the industry will continue for years to come.

Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves is available to Download & Keep now and on DVD, Blu-ray™, 4K UHD™ and 4K UHD™ + Blu-ray™ SteelBook® from 31st July.
