So word has just come that Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has been bumped from a Christmas Day release date to...mid-January. Thank you, Mr. Grinch, for making it clear just what that means.
Judging from the trailer, there may be good reason for the move. Oh, look — it's Kevin Costner doing a bad imitation of Scott Glenn in Silence of the Lambs. Oh, look, it's Chris Pine and Keira Knightley as Arnold and Jamie Lee Curtis in True Lies. And oh look, it's Kenneth Branagh playing a Russian who starts sentences with "You Americans..."
Rest in Peace, Mr. Clancy. It's a rough world you've left.
