No Arm Chair Quarterback: Trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

It's been a while since Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan has appeared on the big screen. The last time was 2002's Sum of All Fears, and I must admit, I was disappointed in Ben Affleck's Ryan. All that said, it looks like the analyst turned spy turned president is making a come back, and this time he is played by Captain Kirk. It also looks like they are going for a more shoot 'em up kind of Ryan than the brainy one, but it still looks like a fun ride. Here's the official synopsis:

Based on the character created by bestselling author Tom Clancy, “Jack Ryan” is a global action thriller set in the present day. This original story follows a young Jack (Chris Pine) as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot. 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)
