Chris Pine, Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley and Kenneth Branagh star in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, the fifth installment of Paramount’s popular Tom Clancy franchise. Paramount Home Media Distribution will release Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit on Blu-ray, DVD and VOD on June 10, 2014. You can check out the bonus features, movie trailer and photos below. The character first appeared in the big-screen adaptations of Tom Clancy’s novels: The Hunt for Red October starring Alec Baldwin, Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger starring Harrison Ford, and The Sum of All Fears starring Ben Affleck. In the next installment, financial analyst Jack Ryan (Pine) must stop Viktor Stazov a Russian financial genius who conspires with the Russian government to wreck the US economy by devaluing the U.S. currency.
Based on the CIA analyst created by espionage master Tom Clancy, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” is a blistering action thriller that follows Ryan (Chris Pine, “Star Trek”) from his quiet double-life as a veteran-turned-Wall Street executive to his all-out initiation as a hunted American agent on the trail of a massive terrorist plot in Moscow.
Ryan appears to be just another New York executive to his friends and loved ones, but his enlistment into the CIA secretly goes back years. He was brought in as a brainy Ph.D. who crunches global data – but when Ryan ferrets out a meticulously planned scheme to collapse the U.S. economy and spark global chaos, he becomes the only man with the skills to stop it. Now, he’s gone fully operational, thrust into a world of mounting suspicion, deception and deadly force. Caught between his tight-lipped handler Harper (Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner), his in-the-dark fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley) and a brilliant Russian oligarch (Kenneth Branagh), Jack must confront a new reality where no one can seem to be trusted, yet the fate of millions rests on his finding the truth. With the urgency of a lit fuse, he’s in a race to stay one step ahead of everyone around him.
