Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit character posters

This may seem like a bit of a strange post. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit (2014) has already been and most likely gone (depending on where you are) from cinemas. But I stumbled across these randomly the other day and thought I would share them for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I was a big fan of the film. I thought it was a really fun and well made old fashioned spy film. Secondly, I like the use of text on the posters. It looks a little different for starters. And the also function almost like a teaser trailer for the film. Giving hints to the differing aspects of each of the four characters.

What do you guys think of these, especially in relation to the film if you have seen it? Apologies for the tiny posters all. WordPress did not want to play nice and it was getting late on a work night. Except for Chris Pine, WordPress wanted you to know he is the star.

First up is Kevin Costner. Great to see him working a fair bit at the moment.

Next is Keira Knightley who plays Jack’s wife, a character perhaps not quite as intriguing as the words “accomplice, asset, weapon” suggest.

Kenneth Branagh awesomely plays the bad guy. A Russian of course. Love the inclusion of the word “capitalist” here.

Lastly is Chris Pine, a man who offends some with his lack of charisma. I don’t mind him and thought he was decent enough in this.

Just a reminder, it may be a quiet couple of weeks on the site. I have a fair few day job (lame) and sporting commitments coming up. I have also had the first episode of the Beer Movie Podcast recorded for weeks and still not gotten around to editing it, so need to get on that.

  1. nice review Tim.

    Still haven’t seen this one yet

    1. Cheers mate. If you are in the mood for a spy/action type film, then I definitely recommend this one.

    1. Same man. I really like these ones in particular.

  2. I haven’t seen this film and I probably never will, but I’ve always been struck by the design of the first poster. Some really great shapes, colours and images in that one. In comparison, the character posters look a bit dull!

    1. Yeah they are a little samey, but all character posters seem to be unfortunately. I really enjoyed the film, but if you are not usually into this kind of film, it ain’t going to change your mind.
