The first clip from Kenneth Branagh’s “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” shows up with a 4-minute gunfight that pits Ryan himself (Chris Pine) against the murderous styling of Nonso Anozie, currently helping out Dracula on NBC’s “Dracula”. Here, he’s helping Kenneth Branagh’s murderous Russian do murderous things. Check out the almost 4-minute clip below, check it outers.
And oh yeah, there’s a new poster for the film featuring director/co-star/villain Kenneth Branagh, too, so you might enjoy that as well.
The story follows him from 9/11, through his tour of duty in Afghanistan, which scarred him forever, and into his early days in the Financial Intelligence Unit of the modern CIA where he becomes an analyst, under the guardianship of his handler, Harper (Kevin Costner). When Ryan believes he’s uncovered a Russian plot to collapse the United States economy, he goes from being an analyst to becoming a spy and must fight to save his own life and those of countless others, while also trying to protect the thing that’s more important to him than anything, his relationship with his fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley).
Starring Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley, Kenneth Branagh, Gemma Chan, Nonso Anozie, and Colm Feore.
