What you may need to know
1. Jack Ryan is BACK! He was Alec Baldwin, then Harrison Ford, then Ben Affleck, now he’s… Captain Kirk?
2. Ryan creator Tom Clancy passed away last week. Never read his books, but his video games ROCKED.
3. Shadow Recruit is directed by Sir Kenneth Branagh, who doubles up as the bad guy to save a few quid.
4. Keira Knightly plays the love interest, because you have to be in a big stupid hit every once in a while.
5. Kevin Costner is to hand, to remind audiences what an actual movie star looks like.
6. We’re still not convinced by the whole Chris Pine thing, particularly after that second Star Trek movie.
7. Best YouTube comment: ‘So…a movie trailer that starts with a man outrunning bullets…does not instill confidence in me.’
Release Date: Xmas
