The stars of the highly-anticipated movie “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” came out from the shadows and onto the red carpet at the movie's LA premiere on Wednesday night (January 15, 2014) at the TCL Chinese Theater on Hollywood Boulevard.
Pine plays CIA analyst Jack Ryan. The popular Ryan character stars in several movies based on Tom Clancy books including “The Hunt for the Red October,” “Clear and Present Danger,” “Patriot Games” and “The Sum of All Fears. He expressed his feelings to The Hollywood Reporter on reviving the spy character once played by the talented group of fellow actors; Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck.
“I always feel very lucky that I get this shot,” said Pine. “I think at first it was a bit intimidating but when you surround yourself with good talented people you know that you’re supported.”
Keira Knightly, who plays Cathy, Jack Ryan's Fiance in the film sported a white-trimmed navy Chanel dress that featured white bows and a matching built-in belt that showed off her very trim waist.
Additional stars in attendance included co-star Kevin Costner, director Kenneth Branagh and guests Alex Kingston and Randy Newman among others.
About the Film:
Tom Clancy’s most iconic character, Jack Ryan, returns to the big screen in this taut suspense thriller. When a global terrorist network is about to be activated, brilliant CIA analyst Jack Ryan (Chris Pine, “Star Trek”) has no choice but to become operational. Yet when everyone who could stop the impending international catastrophe has something to lose or something to hide, who can Ryan possibly trust? Caught between his tight-lipped handler Harper (Academy Award-winner Kevin Costner), his in-the-dark fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley) and a fearsome Russian oligarch (Kenneth Branagh), Jack must confront a new reality where secrets and lies are everywhere, 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.
This latest Tom Clancy book-turned-movie opens nationwide on Friday (January 17).
