Sweet Trailer…'Jack Reacher'

When it comes to action, Tom Cruise isn’t known for playing by the rules. As an operative, agent, even a vampire, he’s known to put the hurt on someone. So when justice needs to be done, he goes full on vigilante. We got just a taste of the bad-assery to come this Winter in the teaser for Jack Reacher, but now we get an deeper and more incendiary look at this story…Enjoy!!

When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: “Get Jack Reacher!” So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.

This adaptation of Lee Child’s novel One Shot has a pretty stellar cast including Robert Duvall, Richard Jenkins, Rosamund Pike (and Warner Herzog as the baddie de jour) just to name a few. It also features the long awaited return of Christopher McQuarrie (writer The Usual Suspects, director The Way of the Gun) serving as both writer and director. Paramount Pictures has slated Jack Reacher for theatrical release this Winter on December 21st, 2012. Another year, another Cruise movie just in time for Christmas. Whatcha think??

    The final beat in the trailer had me in stitches. Outstanding.

    On the other hand, the inserted “the law has limits” tag has such an obvious follow-up that I cringed a bit at being right. But then there’s also the phone call bit. I don’t know. I’m conflicted. There’s potential for greatness here, but also for hackishness.
