The highly anticipated sequel to J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot “Star Trek” opens in theaters tonight, but Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Leonard Nimoy and more “Star Trek Into Darkness” stars walked the silver carpet Tuesday evening for the film’s Hollywood premiere.

The film follows Capt. James T. Kirk (Pine) and his Enterprise crew as they embark on a revenge-fueled manhunt to capture the man behind a terrorist attack on Starfleet. The search takes them to a war-zone world, putting the ship and the lives within it in danger and causing Kirk to question his abilities as captain.

“I think a lot of maturing happens in this film for Kirk, for a man who thinks he knows everything and leads with his gut and leads with his heart, and is all kind of passion and heart,” Pine said during the film’s presentation at CinemaCon. “He’s a man that has to learn to censor himself sometimes, and our bad guy, John Harrison [Benedict Cumberbatch], basically levels this mirror in front of Kirk in which he sees all of his vulnerabilities and his fallibility and everything that is wrong with how he leads his men and women into battle. And it brings him to his knees.”

The star-studded event, at the Dolby Theatre, drew Pine and costar Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock, as well as other cast members, including Nimoy (also Spock — fans of the first film will remember meeting his alternate-timeline version), Saldana (Uhura), Karl Urban (Bones), John Cho (Sulu), Peter Weller (Marcus), Alice Eve (Carol), Nazneen Contractor (Rima Harewood) and Jennifer Morrison (Winona Kirk).
