Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit - new character clip

Trailer Ryan Lambie 8 Jan 2014 - 13:17

A new clip for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit explores the nature of Chris Pine's rebooted character. Take a look within...

It's easy for ageing operatives like us to forget that there's likely to be an entire generation of young cinemagoers who haven't a clue who Jack Ryan actually is.

A role previously inhabited by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck, CIA analyst and all-round man of action Ryan has remained off the silver screen for 12 years - his last adventure being 2002's The Sum Of All Fears.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit introduces a younger, fresher-faced and slightly more Bourne-like incarnation of the hero, this time played by Star Trek's Chris Pine. Unlike the earlier movies, Shadow Recruit isn't based on a novel by Jack Ryan creator Tom Clancy, but is instead an origin story of sorts, exploring the hero's younger years and what happens during a deadly mission to Moscow.

The clip below helps audiences get up to speed with the rebooted Ryan, with brief contributions from director Kenneth Branagh, Pine himself, and there's also a few snippets from the forthcoming movie thrown in, too.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is out in UK cinemas on the 24th January.

12 years since the last one... i feel old. I wonder if they'll use the newer books as the basis for anymore movies? Could change Jack Jnr around for a younger Ryan, the recent books have more relevance in this day an age than the older ones (also why I'm glad they don't seem prepared to re-do the older films as they are great)

I watched some of the scenes in this movie being shot in Liverpool, it was great fun. I can spot a couple of them in this clip. That'll add an extra element of enjoyment to going to see this film at the cinema!

Chris Pine? seriously?, like ben affleck wasnt bad enough, you can say anithing about ford right now but back them his jack ryan ROCKED

Baldwin was the best of the ones shown so far. I like Ford as an actor, and in many roles he's in, but not this one. Even Clancy didn't feel that Ford was the right fit for Jack Ryan. Pine doesn't feel like the right fit either.
