Chris Pine Crouches in First Poster for 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit'
Honestly, following the death of Tom Clancy this morning, it seems a little bit disrespectful for Paramount Pictures to release the first poster for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, but here we are. Chris Pine stars in this prequel film that isn't based on any of Clancy's books, but features the origins of the recurring spy character. This likely means we can expect a trailer for the film from Thor director Kenneth Branagh (who also plays the primary villain) very soon. As far as this first poster goes, it's definitely a more original approach to what we usually see for action thrillers, but Pine's face looks more than odd, and if we couldn't see his legs, I'd say he might be sitting on the toilet. Make sure to come back for the trailer Thursday. Look!
Here's the first poster for Kenneth Branagh's Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit from Yahoo:
Kenneth Branagh directs Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit with a script written by Steven Zaillian, Anthony Peckham, Adam Cozad and David Koepp. The film isn't adapted from a particular Tom Clancy novel, and essentially exists as an original story following Jack Ryan (from films like Patriot Games, The Hunt for Red October and The Sum of All Fears) before he joined the CIA. Branagh is also playing the villain with Keira Knightley as the love interest, Kevin Costner as Ryan's mentor and Colm Feore in a supporting role. Paramount Pictures sends Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit to theaters everywhere December 25th, 2013.
