‘Jack Ryan’ Paramount Pictures Releases First TV Spot for ‘Shadow Recruit’ (Video)


Yesterday, the people at Paramount Pictures gave us our first look at the new action/thriller Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

The film is based off of the character Jack Ryan created by the late best-selling author Tom Clancy, who died on October 1, 2013. Shadow Recruit is the fifth film in the Jack Ryan film series; however, unlike the previous films involving the Jack Ryan character, this film is not based off of any particular book in the Jack Ryan series.

Shadow Recruit shows Star Trek actor Chris Pine as Jack Ryan, a junior analyst for the CIA’s covert intelligence office. When he uncovers a Russian terrorist plot that stands to cripple the U.S. economy, Ryan is promoted to field agent and sent to Moscow in order to continue his investigation.

It is not very long until he meets Viktor Cherevin, played by Kenneth Branagh. Cherevin is a mysterious businessman, who just happens to be at the center of the terror plot that Ryan seeks to uncover.

It is not long before Ryan comes to the realization that not everyone is who they seem to be. While he comes face to face with assassins, stares down the potential breakdown of his marriage, and tries to uncover the truth; he realizes that he may already be too late to prevent Cherevin from carrying out his plan.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit also stars Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley, Colm Feore, and more.

Here is a look at the first Television Spot for the film Jack Reacher: Shadow Recruit.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is scheduled to be released in IMAX and Conventional Theaters on January 17, 2014.
