Good to have you back, Jack!

The first trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit dropped Thursday night and it looks like the Kenneth Branagh-directed CIA thriller is going to be an action-packed doozy.

Sadly, Jack Ryan's creator, best-selling author Tom Clancy, passed away earlier this week. But his powerful imagination and engaging, enthralling penmanship will continue to come to life in future reboots of the beloved franchise.

Actors to have previously played the role of Jack Ryan in films include Ben Affleck, Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin.

Keira Knightley plays Pine's on-screen love, Cathy Ryan, who in this script discovers he's operational. Kevin Costner plays William Harper. Branagh plays the bad guy.

The film drops on Christmas Day this year. Watch the trailer below.
