The Terminal List trailer teaser shows the first live-action footage of the Prime Video series adaptation of Jack Carr’s novel starring Chris Pratt.
The Terminal List trailer teaser reveals the first live-action look at Chris Pratt portraying author Jack Carr’s Navy SEAL protagonist James Reece. Based on the novel by Carr, The Terminal List is the first book in the James Reece series, which follows the former Navy SEAL on a series of conflicts, from deeply personal battles to wide-ranging government conspiracies. The character utilizes his skills as a weapon of war, just as his own time in the service has finished.
Pratt is perhaps best known for his role as Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, as well as portraying Owen Grady in the Jurassic World series. The actor got his start in mostly comedic roles, from the sitcom Parks and Recreation, Everwoood, and The O.C. to films like The Five-Year Engagement and Bride Wars. Pratt famously leaned up for his role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, which altered the course of his career from funny-man to leading man, having since appeared in films like Passengers, The Magnificent Seven, and most recently The Tomorrow War.

Now, the first look at the new live-action adaptation of The Terminal List has debuted (via Prime Video), which gives the first look at Pratt in live-action form as James Reece. Reece is best known for his geared-up look from the novels, typically wearing a ball cap, combat rack, and carrying his trademark Winkler/Sayoc RnD Tomahawk. The Terminal List story follows an ambush on Reece and his SEAL team, leaving all but him dead. He struggles to uncover what happened, learning that it was a deeper conspiracy by his own government, forcing him to seek revenge while still trying to protect those he loves. The Terminal List will debut all eight episodes on Prime Video on July 1, 2022.

The Terminal List also stars Constance Wu, Taylor Kitsch, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Riley Keough, Arlo Mertz, Jai Courtney, JD Pardo, Patrick Schwarzenegger, LaMonica Garrett, Stephen Bishop, and Sean Gunn, with David DiGilio, Daniel Shattuck, and Carr serving as showrunners. There’s no indication as of yet if there are plans to adapt Carr’s other books, but no doubt the success or failure of The Terminal List will determine that. In the meantime, Pratt will also appear in Jurassic World: Dominion on June 10, 2022, as well as Thor: Love and Thunder on July 8, placing The Terminal List smack in the middle of those franchise premieres.
Like the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child, which just debuted season 1 of a series adaptation on Prime Video, the James Reece series by Carr has been an immensely popular book saga for readers. For those seeking new fictional action heroes that are grounded in reality to some degree, Prime Video has seemingly become a welcome home. Along with Reacher and The Terminal List, the streamer has also fueled the latest incarnation of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, which has seasons 3 & 4 on the way. Prime Video appears to be the place to go to see modern-day, war-torn action hero characters from widely read novel series’ brought to life, and The Terminal List’s James Reece looks to be continuing that tradition.
