Amazon has dropped the first trailer for its latest big-budget original series: Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan.

The trailer sees Ryan (played by John Krasinski) plunged right into an action scenario, with helicopters, guns blazing and explosions, er, exploding. It's all gruff machismo and bombastic theatrics, and generally the kind of thing you could imagine Jeremy Clarkson enjoying.

Krasinski is best known for his role in the US version of The Office, though his recent horror film A Quiet Place also won critical praise.

The series sees Krasinski step into the shoes of Jack Ryan, the character from the long-running series of novels by Tom Clancy. Ryan is an up-and-coming analyst who's thrust into a dangerous field assignment for the first time. When he discovers a new global terror threat, it's up to him to thwart it.

It starts on Amazon Prime Video on 31st August.
