Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan is a character with a long history on the big screen. Alec Baldwin played the character with great success in the classic The Hunt for Red October opposite Sean Connery. The character then went front and centre as played by Harrison Ford with the highly popular Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger. With less success the character then resurfaced to be played by Ben Affleck and finally Chris Pine.
Well now Jack is Back! in the form of the new series fitting entitled Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, care of Amazon Prime Video, and if the newly released trailer is anything to go by, he’ll be harder hitting and more politically relevant than ever. We’ve got President Reagan as a voice over exhorting that the future belongs to the brave, and Jack Ryan rescuing what appear to be imperilled refugee’s, while taking on those who threaten the safety of the west with full military might. Take a look…
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan will launch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on 31st August 2018 and stars John Krasinski (The Office 2005 – 2013), Abbie Cornish, Wendell Pierce (The Wire 2002-2008) and the legendary Peter Fonda.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan looks like a very healthy addition to Amazon’s increasingly exciting roster of original show.
