Here's the first trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit with Chris Pine and Kenneth Branagh
Sadly, one day after the passing of author Tom Clancy, we get a trailer for the reboot of his classic character Jack Ryan.
The trailer for JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT actually looks very inciting. The film directed by Kenneth Branagh tells a new, original Ryan story. We haven't seen the character on the screen since 2002's SUM OF ALL FEARS which gave us Ben Affleck in the leading role.
Here's a synopsis to fill you in: In a story taking place prior to the original Jack Ryan stories, Ryan is a young stock broker working for a billionaire in Moscow before joining the CIA. When the billionaire he is advising frames him for a terrorist plot and kidnaps his wife, Ryan must race against time to clear his name, stop the plot, and save his wife.
While Branagh clearly seems to be the villain here, the trailer makes it out like Kevin Costner might not be such a good guy after all. Chris Pine shows that he might have been the perfect choice for the part, though it is a little early to tell. There's tons of great action, and the trailer might be long but it doesn't give too much away. I think you guys will like what you see.
