Paramount must like Chris Pine, as they’ve already got him as the lead in Star Trek and now they’re relaunching another major franchise based around him with Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. We got a poster a couple of days ago, and now comes the trailer.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘In a story taking place prior to the original Jack Ryan stories, Ryan is a young stock broker working for a billionaire in Moscow before joining the CIA. When the billionaire he is advising frames him for a terrorist plot and kidnaps his wife, Ryan must race against time to clear his name, stop the plot, and save his wife.’
Chris Pine, Kenneth Branagh, Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley and Colm Feore star, with Branagh also directing. The film is out at Christmas.
