New Tom Cruise Movie, ‘Jack Reacher,’ Gets A Trailer [Video]
Tom Cruise has been in the headlines this week for his impending divorce from Katie Holmes. But the actor also has a new movie coming out soon. The first international trailer for Jack Reacher hit the web today.
The new movie, which is based on the Lee Child novel One Shot, was written and directed by Usual Suspects scribe Christopher McQuarrie and stars Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike, and Robert Duvall.
Cruise plays an ex-military policeman who now serves up his own brand of vigilante justice.
“He’s very solitary, but he can’t walk away from a situation that needs to be made right. His own sense of right and wrong tie into that situation and he can’t leave until it’s been resolved. That’s his Achilles heel.”
Jack Reacher is a towering and imposing man in Lee Child’s novel and fans of Jack Reacher are a little hesitant about the character being played by Tom Cruise. The actor stands at just 5 foot 7, but Cruise has shown time and time again that he has what it takes to be an action star.
“For those of you who know the books, I’m obviously not 6-foot-5, like Jack Reacher… But Lee felt that I was the right guy to drive fast cars and kick the s–t out of people onscreen.”
Here’s the trailer for Jack Reacher.
