Jack Ryan trailer released

Teaser to a new Keira


It's official: the Christmas blockbuster teasers have begun.

Despite the passing away of the author Tom Clancy earlier this week, Paramount this morning debuted the highly anticipated trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, starring Chris Pine, Keira Knightly, Kevin Costner and Kenneth Branagh (who also sits in the directors chair).

'You're not just an analyst anymore – you're operational now,' runs the voiceover by wise sage Coster as the action kicks in. So what do you need to know? Jack Ryan, played by Pine, is a young covert CIA analyst who uncovers a Russian plot to crash the US economy with a terrorist attack. Keira rocks an American accent. And there are explosions. Lots of them.


We're looking forward to seeing this when it hits the UK screens on Boxing Day – in the meantime, check out the trailers below.
