It’s always good to see Tom Cruise pulling on his super spy trousers, and today a new trailer for his return as Lee Child’s Jack Reacher has been released.
Subtitled Never Go Back, this next outing with Reacher looks the business with Cobie Smulders joining the cast as Major Turner (which if you say it out loud could contain clues as to her allegiance in the film*).
Cruise reunites with his director from The Last Samurai, Ed Zwick, whose recent career (Pawn Sacrifice, Defiance, Love and Other Drugs) has given him a nicely eclectic mix. From the look of this trailer he’s enjoying himself with Cruise giving his trademark best as Reacher.
The film is out on the 21st of October.
Here we go…
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back has this synopsis to work from, and below you can see a couple of new images which were released recently. Check them out below.
After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had.
Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn’t a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there?
What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly doesn’t expect to hear these words: ‘You’re back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine.’
Will he be sorry he went back? Or – will someone else?
