Finally! After nearly three decades since the film rights for the Tom Clancy novel was sold, we are, at long last, going to see John Clark on the silver screen. This beloved novel (and game) character, who has regularly been overshadowed by Tom Clancy’s other famous novel series protagonist – Jack Ryan will appear on ‘Without Remorse’, which will stream on Amazon Prime Video at the end of this month. Check out the action thriller’s final trailer, at the end of this article.
We already knew that John Clark was a bad-ass, but we get to see his skill-set up close in this final trailer for Tom Clancy’s ‘Without Remorse’. Michael B. Jordan has shed his bulky ‘Creed’ physique for a more flexible body type, kicking ass from the get go in the two and a half minute trailer. Jordan has been known for his intense yet brilliant performances – and he seems to have brought his A-game for this role. John Clark is angry and out for blood, and Jordan makes us believe that he is the US Navy SEAL.
The editing of the trailer requires a special mention as it seems to increase the power behind the opening introduction/ fight scene. Clark gets called up, to the field, for a series of foreign attacks on US soil which are closely related to the murder of his wife. Clark suits up without hesitation to take on the bad guys and find out the name of the man who sent men to attack his home. He is not alone though and works in a team which is headed by a fellow SEAL, Karen Greer.
Back in 2017, when Paramount announced that a two-part film series based on Tom Clancy’s novels – ‘Without Remorse’ and ‘Rainbow Six’, we knew we would be waiting for a long time. After the film rights were sold to Savoy Pictures (which became defunct later on) in 1992, the intellectual property was stuck in purgatory until Paramount Pictures eventually bought the film rights for the novel in 2012. Michael B. Jordan eventually got cast as John Clark in 2017 and the director Stefano Solima joined soon after.
Check out Tom Clancy’s ‘Without Remorse’, which will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on April 30th 2021.
