Latest – Trailer lands for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Simon Fitzjohn October 4, 2013 Latest News and Videos 783 With some pretty uncanny timing, no sooner was the passing of legendary author Tom Clancy announced, here’s Paramount presenting the first trailer for the latest attempt at his Jack Ryan character. Chris Pine steps into the shoes filled by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck this time around, dialling things back to an origin film of sorts, with Ryan a young whippersnapper who happens to stumble upon the fact that a Russian plot plans to crash the US economy. Shadow Recruit is directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also pops up as the bad guy – sporting a pretty harsh Russian accent to boot. Rounding out the impressive cast are the likes of Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner. The trailer features plenty of action and double-cross, along with what appears a True Lies-esque sub plot involving Ryan hiding his true identity from his missus (Knightley), and we’ll get the chance to check out the end result on December 26.
