A mere day after the death of the man who created the character, Tom Clancy, Paramount has decided to release the first trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, which reintroduces the character with Chris Pine starring in the role.
The trailer doesn’t look like it’ll be a complete knockout. But, at the same time, I’m not entirely against what I’m seeing here. The action seems to range from lackluster to pretty good, and I still have a soft spot for Pine. I could see this going either way.
This movie was originally supposed to come out on Christmas day, but the promotional materials for the film no longer have a release attached to them. It is possible that that Christmas spot is going to go to The Wolf on Wall Street, while Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit gets moved to an unspecified release date.
