Here’s a 60-second introduction to Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan who returns to cinemas this month in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.
Star Trek’s Chris Ryan becomes the fourth actor to play Ryan, following in the footsteps of Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck.
Unlike previous Jack Ryan movies such as Patriot Games and The Hunt for Red October, Shadow Recruit features an original story rather then being adapted from any of the late author’s novels.
The film also stars Keira Knightley as Ryan’s wife Cathy and Kenneth Branagh as Viktor Cherevin.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit arrives in US cinemas on January 17th and at UK screens a week later.
