TRAILER OF THE MOMENT – JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT

I may or may not have just squealed like a little One Directioner in excitement. I LOVE THE JACK RYAN FILMS AND STORIES. They are stylish and intelligent action, they are Jason Bourne films when the spy is on the inside, does not have to kill people and has the full support of the U.S. Government. They are stories of the analyst with an IQ through the roof who ends up having more action than a teenager at prom. THEY ARE FREAKING AWESOME.

Harrison Ford was always my favourite Ryan, although oddly, THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER is my favourite Ryan film. But I do find that THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER is less about Ryan than about the people defecting.

And now we get a reboot, a re imagining, a fresh start and a new Ryan, and who is the new Jack Ryan, none other than Captain Kirk himself, Chris Pine. His wife is the lovely or possibly not so lovely, Keira Knightley. His handler is an amazing, in fine form, Kevin Costner and rounding out the lead cast is Peter Andersson, Kenneth Branagh, David Paymer and Colm Feore. And I have mentioned Kenneth Branagh is directing? This film is going to blow my mind!!!

I think we may find that Paramount raced the trailer and poster release in honour of the passing of legendary author, and creator of Jack Ryan, Tom Clancy, who passed away yesterday. It is already believed to be one of the biggest releases of the year with the release date being set for Boxing Day (or possibly Christmas Day) around the world. BRING IT ON!
