"Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" Coming to Blu-ray/DVD on June 10, 2014

Posted on Monday, March 17th, 2014 11:36 AM

Cover ArtJack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on June 10, 2014, according to a press release issued recently by Paramount Home Media Distribution.

The Blu-ray Combo Pack includes the movie on Blu-ray disc, DVD, and Digital HD via UltraViolet or iTunes.

The Blu-ray is in 1080p with 7.1 channel DTS-HD Master Audio in English, and 5.1 channel Dolby Digital in French, Spanish, and Portugese. Subtitles are available in English, French, Spanish, and Portugese.

The DVD appears to be the movie only in anamorphic widescreen standard definition with 5.1 channel Dolby Digital in English, French, and Spanish and subtitles in English, French, Spanish, and Portugese.

The Blu-ray disc includes a commentary track by director and star Kenneth Branagh and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and nearly an hour of extras:

  • Jack Ryan: The Smartest Guy in the Room
  • Sir Kenneth Branagh: The Tsar of Shadow Recruit
  • Jack Ryan: A Thinking Man of Action
  • Old Enemies Return
  • Deleted & Extended Scenes with optional commentary by Kenneth Branagh & Lorenzo di Bonaventura

The single-disc DVD version of the movie does not have any extras.

Amazon.com has both versions up for pre-order right now for 47% and 45% off list price, respectively:

Their Pre-order Price Guarantee applies, so if they lower the price between the time of your order and the release date, you'll receive the lowest price. Given that the price difference between the two editions is only $3, I suggest picking up the Blu-ray combo version even if you don't have a Blu-ray player yet. The fact that you get the digital copy and you also have a high definition version of the movie ready for when you do get a Blu-ray player is well worth the few extra dollars invested.

If you don't know much about the movie, please visit the Movie Information page for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, which has a plot summary, cast listing, photos, videos & trailers, and links to reviews. It's essentially a reboot of the Jack Ryan franchise created by Tom Clancy. Some of Tom Clancy's books featuring Ryan have been made into movies, including The Hunt for Red October (probably the best of the bunch), Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger, and The Sum of All Fears. Three actors have played Jack Ryan, and with this reboot, it's Chris Pine's turn.
