Final Hunter Killer Trailer Has Gerard Butler on a Mission to Stop Wwiii

Final Hunter Killer Trailer Has Gerard Butler on a Mission to Stop Wwiii
The final trailer for Hunter Killer has arrived and it's even more intense than the last sneak peek that we got at the end of July. The movie looks like a throwback to the military thrillers of the late 1980s and early 90s, full of action and explosions, almost like The Hunt for Red October, but with a faster pace. Hunter Killer has added benefit of having members of the Navy on set as consultants, to add to the realism of the film.

Hunter Killer takes place deep under the Arctic Ocean. Gerard Butler stars as American submarine Captain Joe Glass, who is on the hunt for a U.S. submarine in distress when he and his crew discover a secret Russian coup is happening, threatening to dismantle the world order. Captain Glass now has a new mission to save the enemy. Captain Glass sets out to assemble an elite

'Jack Ryan' Star John Krasinski Says This Is "A Highlight Of My Life — Not Just My Career"

Fans of author Tom Clancy have seen his character of CIA analyst Jack Ryan brought to life by Alec Baldwin in The Hunt For Red October, Harrison Ford in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, Ben Affleck in The Sum of All Fears, and Chris Pine in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Now it's John Krasinki's turn in the new Amazon series, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, which has just been made available for streaming in its entirety. The series is described as a reinvention — but with a modern sensibility — of the unexpected Tom Clancy hero (first introduced in print back in 1984). In it, Jack Ryan is an up-and-coming CIA analyst who finds himself thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. The series follows the character as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed

‘Jack Ryan’: The Ending Is a Clever Tie-In to the Movies, and a Confounding Way to Cap Season 1 — Spoilers

‘Jack Ryan’: The Ending Is a Clever Tie-In to the Movies, and a Confounding Way to Cap Season 1 — Spoilers
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” Season 1, including the ending. For a spoiler-free review, click here.]

So many stories in the Jack Ryan franchise hinge upon our eponymous hero stopping bombs from going off. “The Hunt for Red October” is basically about escorting a Soviet submarine safely back to America without anyone blowing it up. In “The Sum of All Fears,” the pivotal crisis is a bomb detonating at the Super Bowl. During the climax of “Shadow Recruit,” Chris Pine’s Jason Bourne-plated Jack Ryan finds a bomb, can’t defuse it, and drives it into the East River to prevent any casualties.

Amazon’s “Jack Ryan” TV series, which is inspired by Tom Clancy’s stories but written anew by Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland, starts off with an explosion and ends with one, too. The last one is a nice nod to the films and what’s helped

Jack Ryan Review: John Krasinski and Action in Short Supply

  • TVfanatic
Suleiman is not the name of the show I’m reviewing, but unfortunately, it would have been more apt based on the six episodes of Jack Ryan available for press prior the new Amazon series dropping on Friday, August 31.

John Krasinski, still best known for his role on The Office yet fast becoming a movie star in his own right, plays the titular Jack Ryan with the requisite finesse.

But the story never quite catches fire for the former Marine turned CIA analyst getting his feet wet again on the ground as far more time is spent on the nuances and particulars of bad guy Mousa Bin Suleiman (Ali Suliman).

The first scene of the series features not what established the life of Ryan, but what drove Suleiman to become the hunted man Ryan finds -- think the next Osama Bin Laden.

Suleiman has a family and motivation from childhood

FandangoNow Offering VOD Binge Bundles (Exclusive)

  • Variety
A decade or so ago, families used to make a Blockbuster run to pick up several of the latest movies to watch over the course of a weekend. The video store chain is now a distant memory and with its extinction, a way of renting movies has largely disappeared.

That may be changing. FandangoNOW, an on-demand video service, has deals in place with most of the major studios that will allow it to create packages of movie rentals. They’ve labeled the offering “binge bundles,” and describe the service as a way for consumers to watch multiple movies for a lower price. Sony, Paramount, Lionsgate, and Universal are just a few of the companies that are participating in the program. It launches on Labor Day weekend with more than 100 bundles.

The slate features several hit franchises such as a collection for fans of adventures featuring CIA analyst Jack Ryan, as

Reboot no more: the overused characters who should be retired

The release of Amazon’s Jack Ryan marks the fifth time the character has been brought to the screen, one of many who need to be swiftly retired

Advance word is that John Krasinski’s new Jack Ryan series isn’t very good, but that isn’t news. Chris Pine’s 2014 Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit also fell short by being too anonymous. Ben Affleck was too preening as Ryan in 2002’s The Sum of All Fears. Harrison Ford’s Ryan in 1992’s Patriot Games and 1994’s Clear and Present Danger was too generically gruff. Even when played by Alec Baldwin in 1990’s The Hunt For Red October, Ryan ended up as second fiddle to Sean Connery.

Sean Connery movies: 20 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Goldfinger,’ ‘The Untouchables,’ ‘Dr. No’
Sean Connery celebrates his 88th birthday on August 25. One can only assume that the man who turned James Bond into a 50-plus year film franchise is toasting the event with a martini. Yet 007 isn’t the only iconic role for the actor. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at 20 of his greatest films, ranked from worst to best.

Connery became a star with the first Bond film, “Dr. No” (1962). In that film, Connery set the bar for every actor who would have to play the debonair British agent armed with an arsenal of gadgets and a way with the ladies. He reprised the role six subsequent times: “From Russia with Love” (1963), “Goldfinger” (1964), “Thunderball” (1965), “You Only Live Twice” (1967), “Diamonds Are Forever” (1971), and “Never Say Never Again” (1983).

Mamma Mia's Older Bill Has Not 1, Not 2, but 3 Famous Sons
While you may have spent the weekend swooning over Young Bill in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, played by Josh Dylan, you might have overlooked the Swedish icon who plays his elder counterpart, Stellan Skarsgård. The actor representing Abba's native roots starred in over 25 Scandinavian films before gaining international recognition in the Academy Award-nominated 1990 historical drama The Hunt for Red October. He went on to appear in Good Will Hunting seven years later starring opposite Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and the late Robin Williams.

‘Hunter Killer,’ First Trailer: Gerard Butler Leads Team In Rescuing Russian President

‘Hunter Killer,’ First Trailer: Gerard Butler Leads Team In Rescuing Russian President
When the Russian President is kidnapped by a rogue general, the U.S. Navy SEALs come to the rescue working alongside the Russians to bring their him back. That is the premise of the new Summit military actioner Hunter Killer that stars Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman, Common, Toby Stephens and Linda Cardellini. The submarine military thriller is reminiscent of The Hunt For Red October in building tension in what is a peek into what appears to be an action-packed film.

The first trailer has dropped on the film which was based on the 2012 novel Firing Point from Don Keith and George Wallace. Adapted by Arne Schmidt and Jamie Moss, the story is about an untested American submarine captain who teams with Navy SEALs to rescue the Russian official. The film, directed by Donovan Marsh and produced by Neal Moritz, is set to release theatrically on Oct. 26.

How John Krasinski Plans to Make ‘Jack Ryan’ the Spy Next Door

How John Krasinski Plans to Make ‘Jack Ryan’ the Spy Next Door
John Krasinski needs to stay ripped — so he’s borrowing Dwayne Johnson’s gym.

He’ll soon be heading to Colombia to begin filming the second season of Amazon’s action-drama series “Jack Ryan,” in which he plays the title character, but for the last three weeks, Krasinski has been ensconced in Atlanta with his wife, Emily Blunt, and their children while she shoots Disney feature “Jungle Cruise” alongside Johnson.

As previously incarnated in films starring Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and (in case you forgot) Chris Pine, Ryan is an athletic role — one that requires things like punching bad guys and jumping out of helicopters onto Russian submarines. To help Krasinski stay in super-spy shape, Johnson offered him use of his private workout space.

The problem is, Johnson’s gym is outdoors under a massive tent. And this is Atlanta. In July.

“He likes to sweat it out,” Krasinski says.
