Chris Pine who is most recognized for his work in J.J. AbramsĀ Star TrekĀ reboot is now tackling Tom Clancy. I have to admit, Hollywood picked a strangely convenient time to start promoting this movie with Clancy’s death just happening two days ago. The trailer has arrived though, and it doesn’t look half bad.

I must have not paid attention during the production of this film because there is a few things I did not realize. One being, that Kenneth Branagh directed the film. Number two, that Kenneth Branagh is a star in this movie. And when the hell did Kevin Costner join the cast? Also, was that Keira Knightley? Why the f*ck did I not hear about all this?!

Anyways, here is the Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit trailer below!

Of coourse, this is just a first glimpse and tough to make a real conclusion of how good it will turn out. The part that has me hopeful is the fact that Kenneth Branagh is the director. The footage is nicely put together and the added edition of Zack Hemsey’s musical composition made for a nice closing to the trailer. I wasn’t paying much attention to this flick, but I’ll be keeping this one on my radar.

What do you think of the first trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit?
