Paramount Pictures has released the first international trailer for trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Chris Pine, Keira Knightley, Kevin Costner, Peter Andersson, Kenneth Branagh, David Paymer and Colm Feore.
Based on the Jack Ryan character created by the late Tom Clancy, the film is a contemporary action thriller set in the present day. The original story, written by David Koepp, follows a young Jack as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot. Pine is such a fantastic actor, I think he could really embody this character as no one before has and play him for years to come. The first domestic trailer looked like significant parts of Jack’s origin from the books are going to be changed. I wonder if they’re going to go all original stories with the character or, after an origin, they’d start remaking or adapting Clancy’s novels. Jack Ryan will open on Christmas Day.
