Kevin Smith has a great job.
Aside from writing and director popular comedies, the movie maven gets to screen upcoming films before they're released. Already, he's heaped praise upon Watchmen.
Now, it appears as though the director of Zack and Miri Make a Porno has seen a preview of J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movie, and has only good things to say about it.
Sounds like Kevin Smith loves Chris Pine.
Here's a snippet of Smith's interview on the Kevin and Bean radio show last week:
Smith: I saw a movie last night that I cannot talk about.
Host: Was it good?
Smith: It was phenomenal.
Host: Any stars, any break out stars, and do they trek?
Smith: The stars absolutely trek in this film. It is fantastic. Anybody who was worried doesn’t need to be worried–about this film I cannot talk about…It was in very capable hands. The director did a phenomenal job...Top notch cast and the guy that plays the lead is an instant star. That dude is going to be so famous. He is so wonderful. He picked up a role that I would say is pretty challenging for someone to step into the shoes of, because it is a role that has been played before many times by the same guy.
