Paramount have unveiled the first trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” the reboot of the 1990s franchise based on the Tom Clancy novels.
The trailer itself bares little resemblance to the previous series, which were more adult-centric political/espionage dramas with action elements.
This plays out more like a standard modern action thriller that just happens to use an existing franchise title and character (much like the last two “Die Hard” films). On the flip side, there’s a refreshing focus away from visual effects trickery with the action done on a fairly practical level.
The trailer is up at Apple Trailers.
