Paramount Pictures has set a Christmas Day release date for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and they’ve just unveiled a new poster and trailer for action film. Based on the character created by author Tom Clancy who unfortunately passed away this week, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is an original story and the first film of the franchise reboot to feature Chris Pine (Star Trek) in the lead role. Directed by and co-starring Kenneth Branagh, the cast also includes Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley.
The story follows Jack Ryan 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 (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 (Knightley).
