Not too long after Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit opened in theaters, Chris Pine confirmed that was his first and last time playing Tom Clancy’s hero. Since Kenneth Branagh’s film was the lowest grossing Jack Ryan picture to date, that news didn’t come as a shock to anyone. Shadow Recruit performed well overseas, but the thriller only made around $50 million in the states. The movie itself is a fine thriller, it just wasn’t exciting enough to leave audiences craving more adventures with Jack Ryan.
However, the character will soon return in an Amazon series. Last September, Amazon won the bidding war for the Jack Ryan show, and now they’ve found their star, John Krasinski (13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi).

Even Michael Bay‘s most passionate fans rarely stand by Pearl Harbor. There are people out there that like the movie, but, unlike with the Transformers movies, you rarely get called an idiot online for not being a fan of Bay’s 2001 epic. The film was new territory for the director, but it missed the mark, thanks to miscasting, some tone-deaf humor, and its glossy aesthetic. Which means it’s ripe for getting ripped apart. After the jump, watch the Pearl Harbor honest trailer.

The news doesn’t come as a surprise, as Bay entered talks to direct last fall after months of speculation (and let’s be real, totally reasonable assumptions). There’s a catch this time, though: It’s going to be the last Transformers movie Bay will ever direct. Or so he says. For now. Read the Michael Bay Transformers 5 comments after the jump. Read More »
