'Outlaw King': Fans feel 'robbed' by the blurry shot that was Chris Pine's penis
Fans looked forward to the glorious scene the most, and what they got was Pine walking out of a lake. And his penis? It was pretty much skillfully nowhere to be seen.
If there's one thing that Netflix has managed to get fans buzzing with, in the last one month or so, it was the prospect of witnessing Chris Pine's full-frontal nudity in his most recent venture, 'Outlaw King.' The story revolves around a Scottish War-drama and had a lot of other remarkable aspects of it - especially its gore and violence quotient being compared to the brutal scenes from HBO's 'Game of Thrones' - but somehow, the nude scene featuring Pine and his penis managed to steal all the spotlight when it came to things about the movie fans were looking forward to the most. And now - almost a day after Netflix dropped the film - fans have been left quite disappointed, deprived, and disheartened, because Pine's nude scene in 'Outlaw King' is nothing but a blurry tease.
The fact that Pine himself had addressed the issue, especially the sensationalizing of the scene, as nothing but a highlight of the 'double standards' that exist for male and female stars in the industry should have warned fans; but it didn't. Fans looked forward to the glorious scene the most, and what they actually got was Pine as King Robert the Bruce, the outlawed king of Scotland, walking out of a lake that he had just bathed in. And his penis? It was pretty much skillfully nowhere to be seen.
Addressing the issue, Pine had also drawn a comparison between his nude scene and the very famous one of Michael Fassbender's in the 2011 movie, 'Shame'; but sadly, for his fans, this was nowhere close to it. The scene was tactfully shot from such an incredible distance that one would need a lot of rewinding and careful vigilance to spot his penis. And that is something they have been less than impressed about, especially after all the buzzing the news of it had been able to create on social media feeds. So much, that they believe that contrary to the hype, the film had better things to brag about than his penis.
This does bring back memories of Megan Fox's steamy nude scene from the cult classic, 'Jennifer's Body', as she also emerges from the water in her birthday suit - and granted, her nipples were covered up for the remarkably discreet shot - it still showed more than Pine's 'full frontal nudity.' And if you're still not convinced and want to witness the sensational scene yourself, this is what vigilantes had to say about the less than even bland nude scene:
Chris Pine's penis was nice. I liked the blurry dark part next to the blurry light spot— Wil Brooks🥪🍸🍝 (@willo719) November 9, 2018

The critics overhyped Chris Pine’s penis scene. I knew it was going to be a short scene, but damn you can’t even see his dick unless you zoom in.— Michelle C (@ElleMCo) November 9, 2018
I haven't seen it elsewhere on Twitter yet, so here are some stills of Chris Pine naked in Outlaw King. I think they overhyped the gays with this nude scene. While I enjoyed seeing Chris Pines penis, it doesn't quite stack up to Fassbender's in Shame, that was a formidable cock. pic.twitter.com/GNMVptf3Ql— James (@Its_jameson) November 9, 2018

OUTLAW KING deserves to be seen on a big screen. And not even because of Chris Pine’s penis, which I think we can all agree has been vastly overhyped at this point (as lovely as it is)— Jonnie Barrow (@JonnieBarrow) November 4, 2018
Outlaw King released on Netflix this November 9th and tells the story of Robert the Bruce, who led a rebellion to reclaim his reign on the Scottish throne. Directed by David Mackenzie, it also stars Florence Pugh and Aaron Taylor Johnson alongside Pine.
