Finally after months of speculation the trailer for Jack Ryan arrives. Why did it take so long?

However after seeing this, I can't help but wonder whether Branagh and Paramount did the right thing by transforming Ryan into an action character instead of the everyday analyst who finds himself way over his head pretty much everytime he goes into the field. I bet the writers of this entry will play up Ryan's Marine career, and his subsequent accident, as an excuse for all his skills. I hope that Jack Ryan won't be another brand name cash-in like the The Bourne Legacy.

I'm not familiar with Jack Ryan but judging from what fans are saying this does seem like a diversion from the everyday quality of the character. Which is a shame because it actually looks like pretty good.

It's a case of Hollywood marketing gurus not trusting the audience to see something they're unfamiliar with. This probably could have been a whole new franchise on its own but because studios are wary of failing they slap a familiar name on it to entice audiences. They can't even trust the audience to know that remember the title Shadow Recruit so they had to make it Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

ORIGINAL: rcrofty7

There is nothing in the trailer to suggest he will be a bourne type character, there are lots of explosions etc, but there were in clear and present danger and a huge bomb in the last one. He may still be the office man they previous ones were, but all of the jack ryans had some element of action where they had to fight or shoot guns. Just because he was given a gun and his status updated doesn't mean he is gonna be James Bond.

I like everyone else hope they keep to the character of the old films (as we already have bond and bourne) but for me there is not a lot in this trailer to suggest this film won't go that way.

There was definitely a scene in there where he jumps down on someone while hiding on the ceiling Bond/Spidey style.

Looks very Bourne/Casino Royale.And yeah they do seem to give a lot away in that trailer.Im a big fan of Mr Pine though so il definetly go see.
