First New Jack Ryan Photo

meh...

By Robert T. Trate     September 01, 2012

Chris Pine already knows how to successfully fill the shoes of a movie icon, starring as James T. Kirk in 2009′s Star Trek. On Christmas 2013, he’ll become Jack Ryan, Tom Clancy’s CIA analyst who inevitably finds himself forced into dashing field heroics. 

In the just released image from Paramount, Pine’s younger, more stylish Ryan speeds through a city on a sporty Ducati motorcycle. In the new reboot, directed by Kenneth Branagh — who also stars as the villain — and co-starring Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner, Ryan is updated from his Cold War origins to the post 9/11 world. But he still might find himself coming face-to-face with some frisky Russians.

Jack Ryan, as it is currently titled, is due Dec. 25, 2013.

Thanks to
aegrant for the submission.

Not a great photo.  This could be from anything.

...Exactly!!  Chris Pine could have been going to the store to get a bag of sugar or a stick of butter...

For some reason I truly hope this new incarnation is a success. I like the Jack Ryan movies.

I never really imagined Jack Ryan as the Ducati type, from the novels.

 Chris Pine always has to have the bike huh?  LOL.  We'll get more later.

I worry that they will try to turn Jack into Jason Bourne.

What I loved about the novels was that he was smart, but he wasn't an action hero.
He was a pretty regular guy with a military background that just happened to find himself in dangerous situations.
Often more cerebral than muscular.

For some reason, this shot doesn't strike me as particularly "Jack Ryan".
Not sure why.

like to see ted bells alex hawke become a film franchise.

So, Jack Ryan is a CIA agent who breaks simple laws like failing to wear a helmet on a motorcycle, and rides a Ducati?

Yeah, I've read every Jack Ryan book that wasn't ghost written by someone else.  This picture is so NOT Jack Ryan.  *EPIC FAIL*

CaptAmerica04 your post reminds me of all the haters that screamed that the Bond franchise was over when Daniel Craig was chosen for the role.  Not sure you can justify the term EPIC fail from ONE frame of film.  Besides, not all states have a motorcycle helmet law.  As a true fan just be happy they are continuing to make a Jack Ryan movie at all, give it a chance then post your reaction based on what they make, not in what you make of a picture.

I'm with Cap, this pic is a fail. However, I really like Chris Pine and I still think this new Ryan flick will be good. On a side note. I really wish Marky Mark, would make another Bob lee Swagger film.
