Paramount has released the first poster promoting "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," the latest big-screen incarnation of a character created by recently deceased author Tom Clancy.

Bing: More on Tom Clancy

Clancy, who died in a Baltimore hospital on Tuesday, first introduced readers to Ryan in the 1984 novel "The Hunt for Red October." Alec Baldwin played the CIA analyst in the 1990 movie adaptation, Harrison Ford played Ryan in "Patriot Games" and "Clear and Present Danger," while Ben Affleck portrayed the government hero in 2002's "Sum of All Fears."

This time, Chris Pine ("Star Trek") steps into Ryan's shoes to work in Moscow, where he uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack.

Kevin Costner, Keira Knightley and Kenneth Branagh co-star in the thriller Branagh directed from a script written by David Koepp ("Spider-Man") and Adam Cozad.

"Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" lands in theaters on Christmas Day.
