A new trailer for Jack Reacher provides a much clearer picture of what kind of movie we’re going to be getting from this adaptation of Lee Child’s popular mystery book series.
We find out a lot about Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher very early on in the new two-and-a-half minute clip for writer/director Christopher McQuarrie’s film. Reacher is a former cop in the military police, “a brilliant investigator” and “a troublemaker, too.”
In the film, based on the book One Shot, Reacher is investigating a man who he thinks was framed for murdering five people in a series of sniper killings.
When a lady lawyer is taken hostage, the very confident Reacher explains to the bad guys that he’s not who they think he is.
