It has been a long while since we have had a Jack Ryan adventure. Honestly, I could care less that the studio is relaunching a franchise. I am more interested in what Kenneth Branagh can do directing a spy thriller. Check out this new MEGA clip from Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.
Synopsis: Plot Summary: Based on the character created by bestselling author Tom Clancy, "Jack Ryan" is a global action thriller set in the present day. This original story follows a young Jack (Chris Pine) as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot. The story follows him 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 (Kevin 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 (Keira Knightley).
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit features Chris Pine, Keira Knightley, Kevin Costner, Peter Andersson, Kenneth Branagh, David Paymer, and Colm Feore.
