    Bond, Dracula, Batman & More: Who Played These 10 Iconic Characters Best?

    This past weekend saw the release of "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," the latest film to feature Tom Clancy's CIA analyst. It's probably fair to say that the film didn't live up to Paramount's expectations as a franchise re-starter, opening in fourth at the box office with a disappointing $15 million, a...

    Box Office: Universal's 'Ride Along' and 'Lone Survivor' Top Weekend as 'Jack Ryan' Stumbles and 'Hustle' Rides Oscar Wave

    Universal bounced back from its second big-budget dud of 2013, "47 Ronin," with two lower-budget 2014 releases that should pass the $100 million domestic mark.

    Review: 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' With Chris Pine, Keira Knightley & Kevin Costner

    Today, most people associate the character of Jack Ryan—originally created by author Tom Clancy, in a number of blockbuster novels—as a kind of hard-hitting action hero. This is thanks in large part to the series of films that began with 1990's masterful thriller "The Hunt for Red October" and conti...

    'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' Is Enjoyable Action, But Fault Lies in the Script -- Not the Stars (REVIEW AND ROUNDUP)

    Reviews have arrived for Kenneth Branagh's Tom Clancy adaptation "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," starring Chris Pine as the eponymous CIA-analyst hero.

    No one joins the CIA just to work as an analyst. Or that's the case in the movie world anyway, with Chris Pine's rebooted Jack Ryan drawn into far more than he bargained for in "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit." And with Paramount's new (potential) franchise launching in just a few days, a couple more cli...
