AceShowbiz - Ahead of its premiere, "Jack Ryan" unearths a Super Bowl trailer which will further hype fans up about the upcoming Amazon series. Starring %cJohn Krasinski% ("The Office") as the titular character, the series offers fans what to expect from the drama through the new trailer.
The trailer, which is released on Prime Video, sees Ryan going through some very intense adventures as gunfire and explosion are featured multiple times. The CIA analyst at one point is seen cautiously going upstairs with a gun in his hand, seemingly about to capture a criminal who is hiding inside a home somewhere in the Middle East.
In addition to the action-packed scenes, the trailer, which is set to a cover of %cBob Dylan%'s "All Along the Watchtower" from %cDevlin% and %cEd Sheeran%, also hints that the upcoming series won't be all about wars and criminals. Ryan is briefly seen having an intimate moment with a female character.
"Given the colossal scope and scale of the series coupled with the popularity of Tom Clancy's novels, we knew Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan would be a natural fit for Prime Video's first Super Bowl ad," said Amazon Studios' head of marketing Mike Benson in a statement. "The global nature of the audience provides us with a unique opportunity to give viewers a look at this thrilling new series coming to Prime."
Based on Tom Clancy's book, "Jack Ryan" has Carlton Cuse ("Lost") and Krasinski serving as a showrunner. Krasinski joined a slew of actors who portrayed the CIA analyst-turned-spy such as %cAlec Baldwin%, %cHarrison Ford%, %cBen Affleck% and %cChris Pine%. The latter played the character in 2014's "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit".
Also starring %cWendell Pierce% ("The Wire") and %cAbbie Cornish% ("Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"), "Jack Ryan" will premiere on August 31 on Amazon.
