The Hunt Is On: Chris Pine In THE CONTRACTOR

 
 
Chris Pine is in action hero mode in the upcoming thriller, The Contractor. This trailer for the Tarik Saleh film is reminiscent of Pine’s turn in Kenneth Branagh’s underrated Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
 
Yes, The Contractor might feature a few genre tropes – but there’s nothing wrong with that if its done well. The film looks like a good meat and potatoes action-thriller and Movies In Focus is onboard for some old-school thrills.
 
The Contractor hits U.S cinema, Digital and On Demand on April 1, 2022. Ben Foster, Gillian Jacobs, Eddie Marsan, JD Pardo, Florian Munteanu and Kiefer Sutherland co-star.
