Chris Pine and Keira Knightley star in the first Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit trailer
Yesterday, Paramount debuted the new title and first poster for the next Jack Ryan film, JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT. Today, we get the first trailer for the film featuring Chris Pine in the titular role that was previously held by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck. Given that Tom Clancy passed away yesterday, is this timely marketing on behalf of Paramount, or are they shamelessly taking advantage of Clancy’s death. I’ll let you decide on that one, but in the meantime, check out the first trailer, which looks pretty decent. It seems Jack Ryan’s wife (played by Keira Knightley) has a large part in the film and even though I haven’t read all of the Jack Ryan novels, I don’t remember her ever getting drawn into Ryan’s job to this degree. But to be honest, the highlight of the film seems to be Kevin Costner and I’m not sure I followed what the story is supposed to be, but we’ll see what they have in store for us.
JACK RYAN is set to star Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley, Kenneth Branagh and Colm Feore. Kenneth Branagh is also handling directing duties for the film that hits theaters on Christmas day.
