Netflix made all heads turn with the first ever trailer of The Cloverfield Paradox during the Super Bowl LII game. And within two hours of this trailer, the film was up for streaming on Netflix immediately after the Super Bowl game ended. Its competitor Amazon Prime Video though took a different stance on the massively popular Super Bowl.

It made its promotion debut in the game with the trailer of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. John Krasinski, The Office actor, plays Jack Ryan, the hero of Tom Clancy’s best-selling spy novels in the series. The series will make its premiere in August this year with eight one-hour episodes in the first season. For the uninitiated, Jack is a reinvention with a modern sensibility of the famous Tom Clancy hero, which has been played in Hollywood by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine.

Jack is an up-and-coming CIA analyst thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time and follows the titular character as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit with a new breed of terrorism that threatens destruction on a global scale. The series also stars Wendell Pierce (The Wire) as James Greer and Abbie Cornish (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) as Cathy Mueller.
