I’m aware that this movie got moved to January by Paramount so that they can make room for Martin Scorsese’s THE WOLF OF WALL STREET this December, but does this make JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT a January Movie? That’s what I’m concerned about, seeing that January is a dumping ground for movies that stink.
In the meantime, here’s the first TV Spot for JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT
“JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT,” from Academy Award®-nominated director Kenneth Branagh, starring Chris Pine, Academy Award®-nominated Keira Knightley and Academy Award®-nominated Kevin Costner. The film was shot in New York, Moscow and London and is slated for release on January 17, 2014.
Based on the Jack Ryan character created by bestselling author Tom Clancy, the film is a contemporary action thriller set in the present day. The original story, written by David Koepp (“ANGELS AND DEMONS,” “WAR OF THE WORLDS”), follows a young Jack as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot.
“JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT” stars Pine (“STAR TREK,” “RISE OF THE GUARDIANS”) as the title character; Knightley (“ANNA KARENINA,” the “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN” franchise) as his fiancé Cathy Muller; Costner (“HATFIELDS & MCCOYS,” “DANCES WITH WOLVES”) as Ryan’s CIA handler Harper; and Peter Andersson (“THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO” trilogy) as security agent Dmitri Lemkov. Branagh, in addition to directing the film, will take on the role of Russian oligarch Viktor Cherevin
