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.

When Tom Cruise was cast as Jack Reacher in Christopher McQuarrie's adaptation of Lee Child's novel, 'One Shot' (which has since been retitled to 'Jack Reacher'), fans of the character were none too pleased. Written as a 6'5" man with a fifty inch chest and the ability to kill his foes with a single punch, Cruise seemed all kinds of wrong for Child's soldier-turned-drifter protagonist. With the arrival of a the first 'Jack Reacher' trailer, we can all see first hand how Cruise looks in the role.
The first official image of Tom Cruise in character as 'Jack Reacher' has debuted and while it doesn’t address the burning concerns of rabid Reacher fans who claim Cruise is too short to play their beloved anti-hero, it does give us plenty of ammunition for further arguments while we wait for the film to reach us in December.
Modern cinema is franchise-crazy these days, which would explain why Paramount is changing the name of 'One Shot,' which stars Tom Cruise, into 'Jack Reacher.' The film is scheduled to open this December 21.
