'Jack Ryan' clip: Chris Pine's analyst revisits the cold war -- VIDEO

Jan. 17 isn’t typically a release date that instills a lot of confidence in a film, but I’m stubbornly optimistic that the Jack Ryan reboot with Chris Pine, which got bumped from a prime Christmas date by the delayed Wolf of Wall Street, delivers the thrills I remember from the best Tom Clancy novels and films. One thing that gives me hope: the bad guys seem to be actual Russians.

Apparently, director Kenneth Branagh didn’t get the memo that you can’t make movies with Chinese or Russian villains (since you might alienate a crucial segment of your international audience. See Red Dawn.) I suspect the late Tom Clancy wouldn’t have lent his name and characters to any movie that featured his favorite hero battling Latvian street-toughs or some other second-tier baddies. True to Clancy’s cold-war books, Pine’s Jack Ryan visits Russia, where he faces an oligarch (Branagh) plotting to crash the U.S. economy.

In this extended action-scene, Pine’s green analyst gets introduced to old-school Russian hospitality. READ FULL STORY

EW remembers Tom Clancy's impact on the big screen -- VIDEO

Author Tom Clancy, the man behind Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games, and more, died last night at the age of 66. In honor of his legacy, EW has created a video for Clancy fans to relive the author’s most memorable big-screen moments. From 1990’s The Hunt for Red October to 2002’s The Sum of All Fears, Clancy was behind a number of movie moments we won’t soon forget.

Chris Pine learns the secret handshake as 'Jack Ryan' -- PHOTOS

As Tom Clancy’s legendary Jack Ryan, Chris Pine is boldly going where no man has gone before — except Alec Baldwin…and Harrison Ford…and Ben Affleck. (But who remembers The Sum of All Fears anyways?) Thus far, we haven’t seen much from Pine’s Jack Ryan, which is still filming. But in case you’re feeling desperate for your next Ryan fix (he did look good on that motorcycle), here are two new images (courtesy of USA Today) of Pine in character, including one featuring Kevin Costner as Ryan’s mentor. (Irony alert: Costner was initially offered the Ryan role that went to Baldwin for The Hunt for Red October.)

Jack Ryan serves as an origin story of sorts for the CIA analyst, who’s previously appeared in Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, and the lackluster Sum of All Fears. The movie centers on a young Ryan as he uncovers a financial terrorist plot headed up by a Russian oligarch played by none other than Kenneth Branagh (who is also the film’s director). Check out the two new pics below: READ FULL STORY

Chris Pine takes a spin as Jack Ryan -- FIRST PHOTO

Chris Pine already knows how to successfully fill the shoes of a movie icon, starring as James T. Kirk in 2009’s Star Trek. On Christmas 2013, he’ll become Jack Ryan, Tom Clancy’s CIA analyst who inevitably finds himself forced into dashing field heroics. Pine is sticking to what worked for him the first time around on Star Trek to make a first impression: riding a motorcycle.

In the just released image from Paramount, Pine’s younger, more stylish Ryan speeds through a city on a sporty Ducati motorcycle. In the new reboot, directed by Kenneth Branagh — who also stars as the villain — and co-starring Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner, Ryan is updated from his Cold War origins to the post 9/11 world. But he still might find himself coming face-to-face with some frisky Russians… READ FULL STORY
