Paramount Pictures is finally making the moves that many have been humming about for weeks.  With Martin Scorsese unable to make the November release date for The Wolf of Wall Street, word started to break that Paramount was mulling over the idea of pushing the film to Christmas Day, which would in turn push Paramount’s Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit—also scheduled for release on December 25th—to 2014.  The studio has now made one change official, as director Kenneth Branagh’s Jack Ryan will indeed open in traditional theaters and IMAX on January 17, 2014, leaving Christmas Day open for a Wolf of Wall Street move (which has yet to be officially announced).

Based on the Tom Clancy character, Jack Ryan stars Chris Pine in the titular role and involves financial terrorism.  A January release for the international thriller was probably not what Branagh had in mind, but the pic should stand head and shoulders above its competition on the January 17th date, where it squares off against the comedy Ride Along, the animated pic The Nut Job, and the small-scale horror film Devil’s Due.
