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:

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

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.

    I don't see it as disrespectful...more of a way to honor the man with a movie based on his character.

    Where are you getting JEJ from? Also, sad day for Tom Clancy fans. RIP
    • Sorry, that was information from an old second paragraph we had from the first look photos. There were rumors he would reprise his role, but they were never confirmed.

    Ugh... Everything in this poster is wrong. My expectations for this film are lowered each and every time there's a new post.

    Yea how is this disrespectful? I mean he created the character. Will you feel disrespected when Stan lee dies and Marvel releases a new Spiderman comic?
  • Such heroic nonsense
    RIP Tom Clancy

    Looks awesome. I hope, since this is called "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit", this becomes a franchise like James Bond. We need one on this side of the pond and the way Bourne is set up it just doesn't count. Also, what cooler way to honor Mr. Clancy's work than to turn it into a Bond-esque movie franchise? I'd love it...

    Candidly, if Tom Clancy had nothing to do with the movie except that it uses the name of character he created it's not a new Tom Clancy movie is it. Loved your books Tom. I hope Lou Diamond Phillips narrates the upcoming audio release of your final book.

    Would have been fun to see Harrison Ford play his father

    Also Think they should bring in Chris Hemsworth to play John Clark in this franchise and his own franchise starting with "Without remorse" and create a universe as Marvel has done
