Based on Tom Clancy's bestseller, directed by John McTiernan (DIE HARD), and starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin, The Hunt For Red October seethes with state-of the-art excitement and sweats with the tension of men who hold Doomsday in their hands. A new, technologically superior Soviet nuclear sub, the Red October, is heading for the U.S. coast under the command of Captain Marko Ramius (Connery). The American government thinks Ramius is planning to attack, but a lone CIA analyst, Jack Ryan (Baldwin), has a different belief: Ramius is planning to defect. But Ryan has only a few precious hours to locate him and prove it—because the entire Russian Naval and Air Commands are trying to find him, too. With international peace at stake and time running out… the hunt is on!
