Though author Tom Clancy sadly passed away this week at the age of 66, his literary-to-cinema-legacy lives on.

His most iconic character, Jack Ryan, returns to the big screen this holiday season. (Probably.) Subterfuge, high-caliber explosions, and geopolitical intrigue are all jam-packed in the new trailer for Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh, the reboot stars Chris Pine as Ryan, a CIA analyst thrust into the field once he uncovers a nefarious Russian plot against the United States economy. In the trailer, Ryan tells his CIA handler Harper (Kevin Costner) “You know, you sold this as an office job.” But Ryan finds it’s anything but a simple cubicle life, as his career affects those closest to him, like fiancée Cathy (Keira Knightley).
