Chris Pine has said British stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Alice Eve have been settling in well on the set of Star Trek.

The actor, who plays Captain Kirk in JJ Abrams' film reboot of the classic series, took time out of filming the sequel to attend the premiere of his latest film This Means War.

And he revealed that filming so far has been "fantastic", and that the British stars are fitting in well.

He said: "They're getting on great. We have a really good, warm, inclusive group from the first one and I think everybody's kind of getting the hang of things and fitting in quite nicely."

Benedict and Alice's fellow Brit Simon Pegg is reprising his role as Scotty, while Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana are returning to play Spock and Uhura.

The film, which is as yet untitled, is filming in a studio in Los Angeles.
