New Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Poster Lands
Kenneth Branagh's actioner gets a promo

As if to respectfully mark the death of his creator, Jack Ryan's pensive face adorns a new poster for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Tom Clancy may have passed away but his famous CIA analyst, a former naval office who's battled drug barons, rogue Republicans and Sean Connery's Lithuanian accent in his many screen incarnations, lives on in a reboot that hands the Langley security pass to Chris Pine.


As the artwork shows and the casting of Captain Kirk has suggested for some time, this Jack Ryan isn't a desk-bound wonk in the Alec Baldwin mould, but a ready-formed action hero. Kenneth Branagh's reboot is an origin story that returns him to his espionage beginnings - in this film, he's an injured Marine who gets the shoulder tap from CIA vet Kevin Costner to work as a high-level analyst.

The pair tackle a Russian oligarch (played by Branagh, who also directs), who combines international terrorism with shenanigans on the finance markets in a highly dubious way that in the old days, would have guaranteed him an invite to the SPECTRE Christmas party. Keira Knightley is also along for the ride as Ryan's wife Cathy.



Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is out in UK cinemas on December 26.
