Paramount Pictures unveiled the full trailer for "Jack Reacher," a new thriller that stars Tom Cruise and is based on Lee Child's best-selling novel "One Shot." Check it out below and look for an appearance by Werner Herzog.
Cruise plays an exĖmilitary policeman turned vigilante drifter, who finds himself drawn into the case of a sniper who randomly targeted civilians. "He's very solitary, but he can't walk away from a situation that needs to be made right," said director Christopher McQuarrie. "He can't leave until itís been resolved. That's his Achilles heel."
The new movie co-stars Rosamund Pike, David Oyelowo, Richard Jenkins, Alexia Fast, Robert Duvall, and Jai Courtney, and is set to hit theaters on December 21st.

Pretty cool trailer. Not much in the way of action, kind of Mission Impossible lite. Killer music. Yet, Cruise is just wee bit old and short to make think "total bad ass". Then again, there's that Mission Impossible thing again.

That actually looks pretty damn good to me. Def what you said Mink about the Mission Impossible feel.

Rosamund Pike has sweet rack.
For some reason Tom Cruise looks shorter at night.
Wernor Herzog is f*cking hilarious.

I'm still waiting to see alexander rhodes' appearance as suspicious onlooker. Do I smell an oscar winning performance?

"Def what you said Mink about the Mission Impossible feel."
Yep. Only difference, he has short hair and he's wearing a flannel shirt. Still, looks pretty f*cking cool.

I don't care what anyone says Tom is awesome and rarely makes a bad movie.

I actually see this as more of an anti-Mission Impossible. It looks to be more of a grittier, blue collar, revenge type action flick where the dude just drives around in a muscle car and beats the sh*t out of people; something akin to the street action films of the 80s, and I personally much prefer it over the grinning Cruise/stunt fiasco hyperbole of the Mission Impossible stuff.
Iím still not quite sold on him as a steely antihero, but the movie does look polished and well executed, so Iím willing to give it a go. This trailer had definitely got me more excited than the previous teaser.

Sure, agreed, but Cruise doing anything that looks remotely like Mission Impossible still looks like Mission Impossible to me.

Very nice trailer and very interested in this. Personally, I think his phone convo looks to be even better than Neeson's in Taken.First hanging up on the kidnapper was brilliant. Then calling back and saying basically he's only doing it cause he wants to kill them is awesome. And I love the line "I have nothing to lose, and if you're smart, that should scare you."
I just hate the same premise for all these ex-military special ops guys.
They were the best they had.
Then they disappeared.
They can only be found if they want to be.
We get it

I'm going to see it just because of the last 30 seconds of the trailer.

I agree that anything Tom does that's even in the same zipcode as MI, is MI enough. But when else do we more like Tom? Personally, I would put the high tension super actioner Tom over all his other film personas. So even films like Knight and Day are up on my list above films like Far and Away or even Days of Thunder. As much as I love the regulars like Bruce, Arnold, Statham, etc I really love Tom as the Grade A action hero. He shines in those roles more than any others IMO. Don't get me wrong, I truly do not take anything away from other genre roles like he's done especially in Born on The 4th of July. But action just to me, seems to be his wheelhouse. Like Clooney playing the charming sometimes smug guy that can kill you with that look. Sure he's done his comedy bits like Men Who Stare at Goats, brother Where Art Thou, etc and his actioners, but he's in his wheelhouse on those Ocean's films, and Out of Sight.

^^this is very true, I think, not just because I agree, but because it is, although I take exception to The Men Who Star at Goats. One of the worst films I've ever seen, and NOT FUNNY. Not even close. Ewan McGregor is not just box office poison, Star Wars aside because, well, it's Star Wars, but personal poison. He's like the movie equivalent of a bottle of cyanide laced grape Flavor-Aid. He's the Jim Jones of filmmaking imo.
