First Trailer for JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT Starring Chris Pine


Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for director Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming thrillerJack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.  Based on the Tom Clancy character, the film stars Chris Pine as the titular Ryan, a Moscow-based financial analyst who faces off against his employer when he discovers a plot to finance a terrorist attack designed to collapse the U.S. economy.  There’s plenty of action to be found in this first look, and it’s complemented nicely by snippets of intrigue, espionage and a complicated web of character relationships.  My only knock on this first trailer is that there doesn’t appear to be a jaw-dropping action centerpiece, opting instead for a number of glances at a series of action scenes around the world.  As a teaser, it works great and I’m sure we’ll see much more between now and it’s theatrical release in a few months.
