Amazon Takes Prime Video To Super Bowl for First Time

Amazon Prime released its Super Bowl spot for "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan", and it doesn't disappoint. Starring John Krasinski ("The Office") as the titular character, the series offers fans what to expect from the drama through the new trailer. In anticipation of the premiere, Prime Video will air its first-ever Super Bowl ad featuring the series, which can be previewed/embedded here. 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. With Emily Blunt announced as joining Jungle Cruise, here comes the latest look at her other half as Jack Ryan in Amazon's new TV take on the character.

Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan will launch on Amazon Prime Video on 31st August 2018. "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".

In the eight-episode Amazon series co-produced with Paramount TV and Skydance TV, Krasinski plays a younger version of C.I.A. operative Jack Ryan and follows in the footsteps of such actors as Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine who've portrayed the character on the big screen to varying degrees of success.

The show is based off of author Tom Clancy's massive book series from the mid-80's, which features approximately nine books in total - not including the two spinoff series, of course.

Along with Krasinski, Jack Ryan also stars Wendell Pierce (The Wire) as James Greer and Abbie Cornish (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) as Cathy Mueller. That then launches him into the center of a risky gambit with a new breed of terrorism threatening destruction on a global scale. The voices of US presidents John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Ronald Reagan can be heard as Jack Ryan handles one unsafe situation after another.
