Agent getting his double-O equivalent stripes.
With less than a month to go until release, a new clip from the forthcoming Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has been released.
The four-minute clip shows CIA agent Ryan (Chris Pine) undertaking his first kill in a hotel - a similar origins story to James Bond’s first kill in Casino Royale.
The new film, a reboot of the popular Tom Clancy character, is being directed by Kenneth Branagh, who also stars as the Russian villain.
Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner round out the cast.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit will be released on January 24th, 2014.
