01 February, 2018, 18:58
The trailer, released Tuesday, is set to be aired during Super LII on February 4 following Justin Timberlake's halftime show.
Based on Tom Clancy's iconic Central Intelligence Agency character, the modernized series, described as a reinvention of the classic story, hails from Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland who shepherded the adaptation.
The Jack Ryan trailer, which features the lead character charging through a series of increasingly unsafe situations, uses "Watchtower" prominently, and is set to play during this weekend's Super Bowl. Of course, the character of Jack Ryan has already been portrayed on-screen before by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine, so clearly, no pressure. Watch 74 second long Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan trailer below. The company, says Benson, intends to demonstrate that subscribing to the service gets customers more than a discounted shipping rate - like original video series. Now comes another ad, relying on a more traditional hero to deal with trouble in a spot for Amazon Prime Video.
Amazon will air a 60-second commercial for its upcoming Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan series during Super Bowl LII.
The company bills the series as having an original storyline while maintaining the fan-favorite characters. That then launches him into the center of a unsafe gambit with a new breed of terrorism threatening destruction on a global scale. The release date was revealed in a Super Bowl commercial that featured another new teaser for the action series.
Variety notes that the soundtrack is a new version of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower", performed by Devlin, featuring Ed Sheeran.
Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan is co-created by Lost producer Carlton Cuse and Graham Roland and co-stars Wendell Pierce, Abbie Cornish, Ali Suliman and Emmanuelle Lussier Martinez.
