First poster for Tom Clancy inspired Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit with Chris Pine hits the net

Oct. 2, 2013by: Paul Shirey

Ironically or purposefully, the first poster (and first promotional material outside some stills) has hit for the Tom Clancy inspired reboot of the Jack Ryan character, JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT. This is also the first time we've heard the new title, which was formerly just JACK RYAN and then rumored to be JACK RYAN: SHADOW ONE. Either way, we got "shadow" in there. The poster comes on the heels of the sad news of Tom Clancy's death and is likely a way of paying tribute to the late author. It's a cool teaser for the Kenneth Branagh directed film, which is due this December, but rumor has it that may change.

See the shadow:

Here's the synopsis:

Jack Ryan, as a young covert CIA analyst, uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack.

This film has a lot going for it. For one, the name. Jack Ryan is a brand character and has been established exceptionally well in various formats and Chris Pine is a fine candidate to take on that mantle. It also has Kevin Coster as a badass CIA agent. That alone is almost worth the price of admission. Then, there's Branagh directing and starring as the villain. The cherry on top is Keira Knightley as the love interest. This is coming up "win" across the board for me.

JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT is currently slated for December 25, 2013 (but, be prepared for a possible shift).

Extra Tidbit: When it comes to Clancy's film adaptations, I'm dying to see Without Remorse. A dream scenario would be John McTiernan directing with someone like Tom Hardy as the lead. What Clancy property would you like to see adapted?

While the poster is generic as all heck, I'm optimistic for this. I like Chris Pine as an actor, he's proven he's more than your run of the mill pretty boy, and Branagh is definitely a talented director and probably will kick ass as the villain. More often than not, films like this end up in the hands of complete hacks *ahem*RobCohen*ahem*, so it does bode well that someone with Branagh's pedigree is at the helm.

I would love to see an adaption (probably a loose one based on some of the story lines) where Ryan becomes President and is forced to deal with a world crisis. I don't think are enough movies that adequately deal with this type of scenario in a real world sense and I would love to see a badass Ryan President .

Not a very good poster, but...

...with Branagh directing, it'll probably be decent. Bit odd they chose to do a reboot with an original story rather than focus on one of the many Ryan adventures Clancy wrote that have yet to be made into films.

Looks good! This is a movie that's been on the back of my radar since I heard it was going into production. This is a franchise could have a lot going for it, and the idea of reigniting it with Chris Pine in the lead role sounds great! As far as releasing the poster just after the announcement of Tom Clancy's death, it is what it is. I don't think anyone should get bent out of shape about it. Considering the man had his name on countless books and video games, I'm sure he gets the need for

Welp

We know what killed Tom Clancy now, he saw this and died of a mediocrity overdose.

Ok cool poster BUT bad form Paramount releasing that as soon as Tom Clancy dies, not cool. Sorry but that's not right.
(granted it could be a major coincidence but...)

My friend works at a movie theater and said the trailer is on Gravity. Which means it was prepared and decided well before his death. Usually the first poster and first trailer go hand in hand so his death was just bad timing.

If the movie is slated for December 25, but the poster only says Coming soon... that means something!

I honestly find it a tad disrespectful that Paramount would release the poster so quickly after Tom's death was announced. Feels like they're taking advantage of the attention. I'm sure they don't think that but would have premiered this a bit differently.
