Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Trailer

"You're not just an analyst anymore - you're operational now." As promised, and despite the passing away of author Tom Clancy earlier this week, Paramount has debuted the first full-length trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, directed by Kenneth Branagh, with Chris Pine as the new Jack Ryan. This action-packed trailer peels back many layers of the story, including giving us a look at how Keira Knightley as Cathy Ryan gets involved. We also get to see Kevin Costner as William Harper and Branagh as the Russian villain who doesn't play nice. There are a few cheesy moments in this trailer, but it doesn't look that bad.

Here's the first full trailer for Kenneth Branagh's Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, originally 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, too. Paramount Pictures sends Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit to theaters everywhere December 25th coming up.

    I prefer "The Hunt for Red October" and "Patriot Games" J.Ryan better than what this appears to be. They turned the reluctant analyst put in a hard place into a standard big budget action hero. Looks like a Redbox for me.
      "annalist" LOL. // Sorry Brian, but this one was golden. *Analyst*
      • Brian Sleider
        Blame firefoxes spell check lol. Apparently an annalist is a person who writes Annals.
    • Bl00dwerK
      Because what you prefer is all that should be considered when adapting an existing IP for film...
      • Brian Sleider
        Rofl, no the existing source material should be considered. Nice try though.
        • Bl00dwerK
          I bet they considered the source material more than you considered your smart-ass comment before you posted it...
          • Brian Sleider
            Have you even read a J. Ryan book? If not you should pipe down, I have and there is little resembling J. Ryan in that trailer. But keep coming with your lil quips I find your attempts to be clever amusing. Its the internet try not to get all wound up when some one bashes one of your comments.
          • Bl00dwerK
            If you don't like my "clever amusing" quips choose your internet targets better. I'm out of your range...
          • Brian Sleider
            Keep at it slugger, I'm really busted up over here. Also I asked that you keep you lil quips coming. What about that imply's I do not like them? Each time you try you look more pathetic. I will also assume that you have not read a Ryan book so what do you know about the source material?
    • ColinH
      For all we know the big budget action stuff is a small part of the movie. If they took Patriot Games and made a trailer out of it today they would likely fill it with every second of action they could. You can't judge a movie on how things are promoted these days. Look at Edge of Darkness
      • Brian Sleider
        I could be wrong, but I doubt it. Bookmark this and shove it in my face if I am. I would bet a years worth of movie tix it will be exactly what that trailer shows. Standard blockbuster action fair. Hunt had some action but not all that much, it was mostly tense sub combat, which was slow but nail biting. Games Had the action that started the whole thing then the last bit at the end, which wasn't all that much. Clear and Present, had the most but it wasn't Ryan in the shit till the end, and when he was in the action his lack of training showed. Do you think they will show this Ryan to be some what unskilled in combat? Or do you think they will give him the Bourne treatment?
        • ColinH
          It will probably be some where in between. He may have basic combat skills. The desk job line in the trailer gives me a lot of hope that they'll stick to the traditional Ryan character
          • Brian Sleider
            Fingers crossed.
  • Xerxexx
    I like it. Will see. Loved the tone of the trailer and the music used.
    • Blah
      What about the Star Trek Into Darkness font?
  • Jon Odishaw
    Keira without her accent? "What the hell is going on here??"
    • Nick Henderson
      Just wait until she uses her Russian accent in the movie.
  • superultraboy
    I hope Mister Clancy had a chance to see this trailer before his recent passing.
  • Bl00dwerK
    Looks awesome! Can't wait to see it...
  • Chris Scott
    Wow he is perfect for the role of the young jack ryan! This looks like it should be an great mixing of the characters the brilliant clancy created
    • Brian Sleider
      I didn't know Clancy created Jason Borne.
      • Bl00dwerK
        I didn't know he said anything aout Jason Bourne...
        • ColinH
          Just cause the action is filmed in a Bourne style doesn't make the character anything like Bourne. I saw nothing in the Ryan character in this trailer to indicate there's even the slightest similarity to Bourne. He looks uncomfortable in the action scenes just like Ryan is supposed to. Bourne also never wore a suit and said things like "I thought you hired me for a desk job"
          • Brian Sleider
            My comment was in reaction to the Bourne style action scenes the fast cuts and such. Out of place in what should be a political thriller not an action block buster.
          • Chris Scott
            Brian, have you actually read the last books, involving a younger Jack Ryan, whom essentially comes into his own as an agent? Personally I think Pine is perfect for the role of Jack Ryan and from just the little glimpse at what is to come. This is a little glimpse after all it looks like it should be incredibly solid in my personal opinion
          • Chris Scott
            I agree entirely Colin you're spot on
  • Lin Group
    Ryan isn't supposed to be a Borne style character. While this looks like it should be fun, it doesn't feel like a Jack Ryan type movie.
    • Bl00dwerK
      Good. I wouldn't be half as interested if it did...
      • Brian Sleider
        Because your interest is all that should be considered when adapting an existing IP for film...................
        • Bl00dwerK
          Not just mine but most everybody elses, as well...
    • Brian Sleider
      I could not agree more.
  • Nick Henderson
    Looks very generic. And His wife turns out to be the shadow recruit of the KGB.....
    • Bl00dwerK
      That or Kevin Costner does...
      • That or he does and they triple flip that scriptoid like bacon on a grill. :-0
        • Such heroic nonsense
          That or..........................yeah that.
      • Nick Henderson
        hah! true
  • Nash
    Not so much wrong with the trailer; solid action, reasonable dialogue, not too much spoilers (Besides the fact that the girl indeed seems to be the traitor, or at least we are supposed to think she is.). And I liked Costners character. Nonetheless the trailer seems to show a lot of stuff we've seen before. Like the Bourneish editing of the fight-scene. And the Bourneish rooftop sequence. And the Bourneish I-must-save-the-world-so-i-must-travel-to-the-most-famous-places-in-the-world cliché. Oh, and the I-have-a-remote-controlled-bomb-and-I-push-the-button-and-dont-look-back-while-the-bomb-explodes cliché. And so on. So I guess I'd wait for its rental release and get me some popcorn and a diet-coke.
  • Richie G
    That hilcopter looked like a miniature when they changed camera angle right before it exploded. Not a bad trailer as a whole
    • avconsumer2
      lol - that was indeed a horrible transition.
  • David Diaz
    I hope this is good and they continue the series throughout his career until he becomes president. I love all the other Ryan films but I never liked how they all felt like singular stories instead of part of a series following the career of one man.
  • avconsumer2
    Seems like a "Hollywooded up" Jack Ryan. Like... as if the Jack Ryan in previous films was real... then they made an action movie based on him. lol - dunno if that's a good thing. (kind of like James Brolin as PeeWee Herman! "I'm a loner Dottie... a rebel.")
  • rickvanr
    about time!
  • Chiroptera Exsanguination
    So branagh makes Thor starring kirk's dad from star trek and natalie portman, then he makes this with kirk from star trek and natalie portman's lookalike keira knightley?
