‘Jack Reacher’ Trailer: Tom Cruise Has Nothing to Lose
We’ve got the first full ‘Jack Reacher‘ trailer and it looks killer. In this film, Tom Cruise plays, uh… Jack Reacher and he’s a man on the hunt to clear the name of a wrongfully accused soldier in this new action thriller from ‘The Usual Suspects’ director Christopher McQuarrie.
Jack Reacher is an army cop — the kind of guy whose prime suspects are all trained killers, making his job exceptionally difficult. When a skilled military sniper is sent to prison for killing five people, Reacher knows the guy was framed, and he’s on the hunt for the real bad guys in the latest film from Christopher McQuarrie, the writer and director behind ‘The Usual Suspects,’ ‘Valkyrie,’ and ‘The Way of the Gun.’
Rosamund Pike and Richard Jenkins co-star in the film, which also boasts the incredible Werner Herzog as the main villain. We’re sold on the inclusion of Herzog alone, but just in case you aren’t, take a peek at the first full, official ‘Jack Reacher’ trailer below. In it we get to know our mysterious protagonist a little better and see the bad guys he’s going up against. Based on the book by Lee Child, ‘Jack Reacher’ hits theaters December 21 — Merry Christmas to all of us. We deserve it.
