A new Fourth of July-centric trailer for “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” was released on Wednesday and wasn’t short on action, even if titular star John Krasinski didn’t have any actual dialogue.

The latest snippet for the upcoming eight-episode first season of the show featured a bunch of action, including footage of Ryan in his cubicle before he sets out on what appears to be a dangerous message, and has to get out of a perilous situation as well.

The clip, titled “Presidents,” also features the voices of several U.S. presidents. It opens with President Clinton, who says: “Though our challenges are fearsome, so are our strengths.” We then hear President Trump’s voice, followed by President Kennedy’s.

Playing faintly in the background is a version of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower,” which is covered by British rapper Devlin and features light strumming from pop-rock star Ed Sheeran.

“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” features Krasinski in the role previously played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck, and Chris Pine.

The show is executive produced by co-showrunners and creators Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, and comes from Paramount Television and Skydance Television.

“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” is produced by Paramount Television, Cuse’s Genre Arts, Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes and David Ellison’s Skydance Television. Along with Cuse, Roland and Krasinski, Platinum Dune’s Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will also executive produce.  Lindsey Springer,  Mace Neufeld, Vince Calandra, Andrew Bernstein and Skydance’s Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross will executive produce the second season with Allyson Seeger as a co-executive producer.

“Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” will be released on Aug. 31 on Prime Video.
