The trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has been released as Star Trek actor Chris Pine takes on the lead role of heroic spy Jack Ryan.

Based on the hit novels of the late author Tom Clancy, the rebooted thriller focuses on Ryan’s early years as a Marine before getting trained up as a recruit for the CIA.

The preview shows Ryan in kick-ass mode as he overcomes a number of enemies and travels around the world as part of his intense training.

Eagle eyed viewers will also catch glimpses of Liverpool, which was one of the locations used for the upcoming blockbuster.

Pine is the fourth actor to portray Ryan, a character previously played by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck.

British actress Keira Knightley co-stars as Ryan’s wife Cathy with experienced support coming from Oscar-winner Kevin Costner as CIA analyst William Harper and Kenneth Branagh as villainous Russian criminal Viktor Cherevin.

Branagh also directs the film which is due for release in cinemas on Boxing Day.
