Earlier this week, Amazon released its new trailer for upcoming Prime series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, which will premiere during this Sunday’s (Feb. 4) Super Bowl broadcast.
The 60-second spot will be Prime Video’s first-ever Super Bowl ad and will air immediately following the half-time show. The ad centres on Tom Clancy, played by John Krasinski (The Office), with audio from historic U.S. political figures — including John F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama — set to a cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower” performed by Devlin featuring Ed Sheeran.
Set to premiere on August 31, the Amazon Prime series will be the first television incarnation of best-selling author Tom Clancy’s legendary Jack Ryan character. The series centres on the up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the very first time. The one-hour, eight-episode first season will follow Jack Ryan as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the centre of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorist that threatens destruction on a global scale.
Starring alongside Krasinski are Wendell Pierce (The Wire) as James Greer, Abbie Cornish (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) as Cathy Mueller and Canadian actor Adam Barnett (19-2) as Patrick Klinghoffer. Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan was partially filmed in Montreal while Carlton Cuse (Lost) serves as showrunner.
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan will premiere on August 31 on Amazon’s Prime Video in Canada.
