Chris Pine, Keira Knightley Need Couples Therapy in First ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ Trailer (Video …

Chris Pine survives an assassination attempt in the first trailer for “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” only to be confronted by a bigger problem: His angry girlfriend, played by Keira Knightley.

The Dec. 25 release from Paramount Pictures follows author Tom Clancy’s literary hero Jack Ryan as he joins the CIA as an analyst, and then promoted to operative after stumbling upon a Russian plot to cripple the American economy.

When his superior officer, played by Kevin Costner, sends Ryan to Moscow to thwart the conspiracy, his girlfriend crashes the party and discovers his top-secret job.

“Can we have a minute, please?” Pine asks as Costner plays mediator between him and Knightley.

“No,” Costner says. “This is geopolitics, not couples therapy.”

“Jack Ryan” is directed by Kenneth Branagh (“Thor”), who also plays the villain. It’s the first movie revolving around the title character that is not a direct adaptation of a novel written by Clancy, who died on Tuesday at the age of 66.
