Chris Pine is going up against Mother Russia in “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.”
The second preview for the upcoming thriller — based on the titular character created by author Tom Clancy in “The Hunt for Red October” — follows Ryan as he begins his career with the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency under a supervising officer played by Kevin Costner.
“Talk me through your very scary scenario,” Costner says. “Keep in mind I don’t have your PhD.”
“I think there’s a coordinated plot for a terrorist attack,” Pine tells his co-star. ” It’s going to be big.”
So big, in fact, that Tokyo, London and Shanghai will also take a dive in Russia’s global “wipeout.”
Paramount is releasing “Jack Ryan” on Christmas Day.
