Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014)
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit SynopsisTom Clancy’s most iconic character, Jack Ryan, returns to the big screen in this taut suspense thriller. When a global terrorist network is about to be activated, brilliant CIA analyst Jack Ryan (Chris Pine, “Star Trek”) has no choice but to become operational. Yet when everyone who could stop the impending international catastrophe has something to lose or something to hide, who can Ryan possibly trust?
Caught between his tight-lipped handler Harper (Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner), his in-the-dark fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley) and a fearsome Russian oligarch (Kenneth Branagh), Jack must confront a new reality where secrets and lies are everywhere, yet the fate of millions rests on his finding the truth. With the urgency of a lit fuse, he’s in a race to stay one step ahead of everyone around him.

This Week In Home Entertainment: True Detective, Jack Ryan And Non-Stop
There are two types of action stars. There are those with almost superhuman physiques who leave a trail of bodies behind their rippling muscles like Greek gods and then there are those who basically play normal-ish people who are just really good at kicking ass. Liam Neeson falls in that second group. He looks like a former cop or an aging uncle who used to be in the marines.

Chris Pine Has A Bathroom Brawl In New Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit Extended Clip
Beyond the fact that this is a fight scene without highly choreographed martial arts moves - instead just a realistic brawl between two dudes in a bathroom - the big take away from this clip is that Jack is still very new to the whole "field agent" thing.

January Movie Preview: Jack Ryan, Hercules And Frankenstein Come Out To Play
It is a new year in cinema, at least for everyone who isn’t still coked up from Martin Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street. Unfortunately, January tends to be a dumping ground where studios release all of the films that weren’t good enough to push for Oscar consideration or big enough to release during the summer tentpole season.

Jack Ryan Reboot Gets A New Poster And Title
Today began with some really shocking and upsetting news. Tom Clancy, one of the most popular political thriller writers of the modern era, has died at the age of 66.

Martin Scorsese's Wolf Of Wall Street May Not Be Ready This Year
When Martin Scorsese wants to take his time editing his movie, you damn well let him, even if that means losing one of your few holiday season efforts that can be both a critical and commercial success. The Wolf Of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, had been looking like one of the fall season's best bets, but according to The Hollywood Reporter it may not be a fall movie at all.

Jack Ryan Needs A New Director As Jack Bender Departs The Project
I'm starting to believe that we may never see Jack Ryan on the big screen ever again. A new installment in the franchise has been whispered about since 2009, but since then the production has faced roadblock after roadblock, including scheduling issues for star Chris Pine with the Star Trek sequel - which is only now just starting to come together - and rewrites to the script. But while you may think that the rough water is behind the boat, think again.

David Koepp Brought In To Rewrite The Jack Ryan Script
Though he's never won, nor has he ever been nominated for and Oscar, David Koepp is one of the most powerful writers in Hollywood. Though he has his fair share of duds, he was still the man with the pen behind blockbusters like Jurassic Park, The Lost World, Mission: Impossible, Spider-Man, Angels and Demons, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Needless to say, the guy's brain is tapped into exactly what mainstream audiences want. Hence why this news makes a whole lot of sense.

New Jack Ryan Movie Will Put Chris Pine In Moscow
