The new Jack Ryan reboot starring Chris Pine has a new poster and a new name -- Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit -- and now we've got the first trailer out of the gate for the holiday thriller.
The Jack Ryan storyline finds the Moscow-based Ryan -- an injured Marine recruited to work as a high-level analyst -- discovering a terrorist plot to collapse America's economy, which puts his love (played by Keira Knightley) directly in jeopardy. Kenneth Branagh plays the film's villain and also directs. The origin story from screenwriter David Koepp will be the first Jack Ryan film not based on a previous Tom Clancy book. Kevin Costner, Colm Feore, Gemma Chan, Karen David and David Paymer also star.
The CIA analyst character has been portrayed by three actors in the past: Alec Baldwin in 1984's The Hunt for Red October, Harrison Ford in 1987's Patriot Games and 1989's Clear and Present Danger and Ben Affleck in 1991's The Sum of All Fears.
Jack Ryan hits theaters December 25.
