Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Paramount has released the first clip for JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT, which sees Chris Pine stepping into the title role in Ryan's early spy days.
The story follows him from 9/11, through his tour of duty in Afghanistan, which scarred him forever, and into his early days in the Financial Intelligence Unit of the modern CIA where he becomes an analyst, under the guardianship of his handler, Harper (Kevin Costner). When Ryan believes he’s uncovered a Russian plot to collapse the United States economy, he goes from being an analyst to becoming a spy and must fight to save his own life and those of countless others, while also trying to protect the thing that’s more important to him than anything, his relationship with his fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley).
This clip is about 4 minutes long, so it's some serious footage - showing not only how analyst-turned-operative Ryan can beat the shit out of deserving bad guys (and severely fuck up his hotel bathroom in the process), but also how he is still new to the job. A job that can, in fact, take some getting used to.
