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.
Kenneth Branagh awesomely plays the bad guy. A Russian of course. Love the inclusion of the word “capitalist” here.
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.
For some reason, this was billed as an “announcement” on the site where I watch my trailers, so I almost didn’t click on it.
But it’s a teaser trailer, and an utterly killer one. I enjoyed the first Star Trek film (the first of these new ones – you know what I mean). That’s coming from someone who has never even watched a Star Trek TV show or film before. And seeing this suddenly has me hanging out for the next entry. Benedict Cumberbatch!!! Sherlock is one of my favourite shows of recent years, so seeing that man in a major villain role is enough to get me excited for this. Everything else is pretty cool too. What do you guys think of this one?
On a side note, any Star Trek fans out there? Would love to hear suggestions on the best way to start exploring the canon. Every time I look for a way in, I am just too intimidated by the sheer number of different versions of the TV show. Not sure where the start is, or if I should even be starting from the start.
