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.
