Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit London Premiere


by Ella Jean

Leicester Square was lit up Monday night with the European Premiere of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.  The evening hosted Chris Pine, Kiera Knightley and Kenneth Branagh among guests from I’m a Celebrity, Made in Chelsea and X Factor.  The character of Jack Ryan, played by Pine, was written by Tom Clancy at the end of the Cold War.  Now at the start of 2014, the creators hope the film will still shine like new. Given the crowd’s response to Pine and Knightley, the feeling is that it will.  To read the full review of the film released nation-wide this Friday click here.
