One of 2012's most pleasant surprises was Christopher McQuarrie's 'Jack Reacher,' which starred Tom Cruise as the titular bad ass. As it was based on a series of books by Lee Child it seemed ready to spawn a franchise, but the film's modestly-hyped Christmas release suggested that Paramount didn't know if they had a winner. The film was a modest success, and now Paramount is working on developing a sequel.

On May 7, Christopher McQuarrie’s proud return to the silver screen, 'Jack Reacher,' arrives on Blu-ray. The film, which stars Tom Cruise, is based on a series of books by author Lee Childs, and follows the title character, an ex-soldier who kicks a lot of ass while investigating a series of murders by a former U.S. army sniper. In advance of its upcoming release, Paramount Home Entertainment enlisted a small group of reporters to visit the Paramount Pictures back lot and experience first-hand what Cruise and his co-stars went through during shooting – including stunt driving, and most crucially, fight training. And we were there.

December is often a surprising month at the box office as many films that never top the box office end up making a lot of money. The Tom Cruise vehicle 'Jack Reacher' opened right before Christmas and had a $15 million opening weekend. Sounds weak right? And yet the picture has grossed nearly $80 million domestically, and over $200 million worldwide. Which is why Paramount is talking about a sequel.

If he hadn't already used that title for another movie, Tom Cruise could have easily called 'Jack Reacher' 'The Last Samurai.' There's a bit of Toshiro Mifune's Sanjuro in this Reacher guy: the masterless warrior who strides into a corrupt town, answers to no one, rights a few wrongs, busts a few heads, and wanders away to find his next challenge. He has no possessions; he owns exactly two shirts and one jacket. All he carries with him is a roll of $100 bills, a passport, a toothbrush, and his inflexible moral code. He would have fit right in back in feudal Japan. Or the Old West, for that matter. He'd make a hell of a Man With No Name.

Christopher McQuarrie clearly has a friend in Tom Cruise. The screenwriter/director has already collaborated with Cruise on several films, including the upcoming 'Jack Reacher' and now it looks like he's going to nab the awesome job of directing 'Mission: Impossible 5'.

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.
