Not signing for multiple films was a brilliant move. If I was a betting man, and this movie is as successful as everyone is expecting, I'm sure that Pine's management was thinking the same thing. Hang in there and wait to see. So it's looking like a big success now, and I'm sure Pine's management will be demanding 10 times more money. And they'll get it.

Hang in there for a bigger payday for the initial contract but the studio would expect something in return. However, I imagine there are always clauses for renegotiation within certain boundaries. Business decision not too different from signing players in football. If the team really wants the player long term they will give him most or all of what he wants so long as its a long term contract. The Oakland quarterback who held out comes to mind but I dont know the specifics of his deal except for the ungodly amount of money Al Davis gave him up front. Or Brosnan's Bond contract had built in raises for each movie he did in the series. IIRC when the contract was up he wanted too much money.

As for Trek, my guess is that Paramount would have not even made the movie unless it thought it was likely there were going to be several more. Therefore it would need to lock in the actors. Since I am neither in the industry nor privy to their contracts it is just an opinion but SOP for modern film franchises.

They might be signed up for a sequel, but things such as the salary and other benefits may not be defined. So in principle they have agreed to a sequel, but some things may still need negotiation before it's all finalised.
