Jack is back! A brand new trailer for the highly anticipated ’24: Live Another Day’ has arrived, and what perfect timing — the special series event premieres in exactly 24 days! Click to WATCH the action-packed promo.
Fans of 24 have been waiting since 2010 for the return of Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), but wait no more! FOX has just released the latest 24: Live Another Day teaser and let’s just say, you don’t want to mess with Jack.
’24: Live Another Day’ — Watch Jack Bauer Kill It (Literally) In New Trailer
24: Live Another Day will have just 12 episodes, but if this new trailer is any indication of the events to come, each episode will be jam-packed.
The promo opens up with the head of the CIA (Benjamin Bratt) tracking Jack spotting him on a surveillance camera. “It’s Bauer.” Da da daaaa!
On the run, the CIA operatives converse about the baddie: “I got a confirm on the target,” an agent says. “Take him alive, if possible. You all know what this man is capable of.”
Well, actually, yes. Viewers of the original 24 do know what he’s capable of because, of course, the CIA is talking about none other than trained assassin, Jack Bauer, who is now enemy of the state.
“Jack Bauer is a traitor and a psychopath,” says the White House Chief of Staff (Tate Donovan).
It’s Jack against the nation!
Once he’s captured, Jack is taken into custody with the CIA who grills him: “I know how many lives you’ve saved, how much the country is in your debt,” says Benjamin Bratt’s character. “They’re just going to see a man who snapped — killing and mutilating with no regard for law or conscious. A man whose country now labels him a criminal. A terrorist.”
The heart-pumping trailer ends with an intense message: “They think they know Jack Bauer, but they don’t know Jack.”
24: Live Another Day premieres with a special two-hour episode on May 5 (8/7c) on FOX.
HollywoodLifers, watch the trailer and let us know what you think about Jack going to the dark side. Are you amped?
