24: Live Another Day is 24 days away from premiering and to celebrate, Fox has released this new movie-style trailer -- complete with a redband-style warning for "Real Time Audience Members Only -- which shows Jack Bauer on the run and being treated like a terrorist and traitor. We also get a glimpse of some of the other characters, including his once trusted sidekick Chloe, who doesn't seem to be very supportive of his efforts, or at the very least, she doesn't think they'll do much good. But for Jack, there's no going back.
Four years prior to the events of 24: Live Another Day, Jack Bauer was a fugitive from justice. But he's resurfacing once more in an effort to thwart more wrong-doers and avert another global disaster. In addition to showing us Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) and Chloe O'Brien (Mary Lynn Rajskub), the trailer also gives us a glimpse of Benjamin Bratt's Steve Navarro, the CIA head who's tracking Jack. Yvonne Strahovski plays Kate Morgan, a CIA agent who's described as both resourceful and ruthless. Looks like she's getting in Jack's way and he's not above pushing her around.
We also see Tate Donovan's Mark Boudreau -- President Heller's Chief of Staff-- chatting on his phone and later swearing that "as long as she lives, she's never going to hear the name Jack Bauer again." I'm going to guess that the "she" he's referring to is his wife Audrey (Kim Raver), who's his wife, Heller's daughter and Jack's ex. That situation could get really dramatic. But then again, that's what 24's always been about. Politicians with personal motives and political agendas, terrorists trying to do horrible things, other time-crunched drama, moles, traitors, maybe a cougar or two and Jack Bauer at the center of it all!
Jack Bauer's not a traitor. Just listen to Chloe...
