Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
Today, most people associate the character of Jack Ryan—originally created by author Tom Clancy, in a number of blockbuster novels—as a kind of hard-hitting action hero. This is thanks in large part to the series of films that began with 1990's masterful thriller "The Hunt for Red October" and continued with two Harrison Ford-as-Ryan entries, as well as a forgettable stand-alone starring Ben Affleck as the brainy CIA analyst. But in the novels and best parts of the earlier movies, Ryan is described and dramatized as something of a nerd, so encased in his own thoughts that he finds it difficult to leap into action. This week's aggressively mediocre "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," refashions the character (this time played by Chris Pine) into a man of immediate action, and in doing so drains him of anything that made him a relatable human being.

Last night Paramount gave journos in New York a 17-minute sneak peek at their upcoming action tentpole, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.” And there in the flesh, tall, rugged and handsome to introduce the footage, was Chris Pine himself, acting and looking like a regular old dude.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
As Keira Knightley showed with her stints in a few "Pirates Of The Caribbean" films, she's not afraid to put on her blockbuster bloomers, it's just not something we see from the actress very often. Thus, we're still a bit surprised about her appearing in "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit." Anyway, whether or not her role extends beyond being Chris Pine's arm candy, or as the trailers suggest some kind of femme fatale, we'll just have to wait and see, but for now, here's some new pics of Knightley in the movie.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
Though Tom Clancy sadly passed way yesterday (check out feature on his best and worst films), marketing campaigns are usually plotted out long in advance, and while some raised an eyebrow at Paramount's supposed insensitivity at dropping the first poster for the movie as the news of the author's death was circulating, it was probably just a bad coincidence. And nevertheless, the campaign must soldier on -- now aided somewhat with Clancy's passing making headlines around the world -- and the first trailer for the terribly titled "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" is here.

They say when one door closes another opens, but it seems that for Brit actress Holliday Grainger, she's got more than the one door to choose from. While the actress is probably best known stateside for her turn as Lucrezia Borgia in the recently canceled "The Borgias," she's quietly been racking up appearances in stuff like Joe Wright's "Anna Karenina," Cary Fukunaga's "Jane Eyre," Mike Newell's "Great Expectations" and more. Now it looks as though she'll be donning yet more elaborate period costumes.

There was a time when Kenneth Branagh was best known for his Shakespeare adaptations, but he's always had a tentpole heart it seems. Going all the way back to 1994's "Frankenstein," which seemed like an anomaly at the time, he's shown a knack for big screen spectacle, and after helming "Thor" he took the gig directing "Jack Ryan." Unlikely? Maybe, but once again, Branagh is ready to play with a lot of money and special effects.

Jack Reacher. Jack The Giant Slayer. Jack Harper....we're getting a whole lot of Jack this year. And as 2013 wraps up, there will be another one in the form of "Jack Ryan," a reboot of sorts of the Tom Clancy character last seen on the big screen over a decade ago, played by Ben Affleck in "The Sum Of All Fears." Well, now Chris Pine is taking the mantle, and a couple new images from the upcoming blockbuster have arrived.

So, this is the bad guy in "Jack Ryan"? A businessman? We guess if he needs to do some evil, there's probably an app for that... on his now old and thus completely obsolete iPhone 4. Maybe he's calling on one of his minions to get in line to buy the new one.

The thing about Jack Ryan on the big screen is that, from a purely visual standpoint at least, there’s nothing that really distinguishes him as Jack Ryan. He could be any number of movie characters, and that’s rare for a character that Hollywood are willing to build a franchise around. So when we get a look at pictures from the set of a Jack Ryan film, if they didn’t come with descriptions attached we’d be tempted to simply peg them as ‘Chris Pine wearing a sweater while riding a motorpike’ or ‘Chris Pine standing next to Kevin Costner’. Well get ready, because you’re about to be blown away by ‘Chris Pine wearing sunglasses AND talking to Kenneth Branagh’.
