We've got an exciting international trailer for you to watch for Paramount Pictures' Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, and it's loaded with some fresh new footage. The film stars Chris Pine in the iconic role previous played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, and Ben Affleck. I think this new movie looks like it will be an entertaining action thriller.
The movie was directed by the film's villain, Kenneth Branagh, and it also stars Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley. The film is basically a Jack Ryan origin story. Here's the synopsis:
Based on the character created by bestselling author Tom Clancy, “Jack Ryan” is a global action thriller set in the present day. This original story follow a young Jack (Chris Pine) as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot.
The story follows him from 9/11, through his tour of duty in Afghanistan, which scarred him forever, and into his early days in the Financial Intelligence Unit of the modern CIA where he becomes an analyst, under the guardianship of his handler, Harper (Kevin Costner). When Ryan believes he’s uncovered a Russian plot to collapse the United States economy, he goes from being an analyst to becoming a spy and must fight to save his own life and those of countless others, while also trying to protect the thing that's more important to him than anything, his relationship with his fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley).
The movie is set to be released on December 25th, 2013!
