'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' Trailer: Espionage, Accents, and Girlfriends

October 4, 2013


Sadly, Tom Clancy has left us, but his most famous protagonist still lives on thanks to this shedding of blood and another transfer of host bodies. For Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Star Trek's Chris Pine is reincarnated as the latest Ryan, sent to Russia to stop the evil Kenneth Branagh (also director). There's only one problem: girlfriends, yikes! When American Keira Knightley shows up to surprise her boyfriend, she finally learns that she's dating a spy thriller archetype and things get complicated--especially when she starts hanging out with Branagh amid mentor Kevin Costner's talk of not trusting the ones closest to you. If you'd never seen a spy thriller before, you'd swear Costner must be talking about her and not for some reason giving deliberate clues about his own betrayal. Here's the trailer:

Man, I can't wait to see what shocking fact Jack Ryan reads on a screen.
