Tom Cruise as 'Jack Reacher' in Uninspiring, Very Orange UK Poster
We're not sure who's responsible for the poster campaign for Jack Reacher, the adaptation of Lee Child's novel One Shot, starring Tom Cruise as the titular recurring character, but they need to be replaced immediately. The first poster for the film was so boring, bland and terrible that we didn't even cover it (you can check it out here). Now a new poster has surfaced and thankfully it zooms out of Tom Cruise's face, but doesn't make the poster any better. In fact, Cruise's head looks a little big for his body and there's nothing exciting about this at all. Maybe this will get the UK audience it's directed at excited, but we think it's a dud. We've also added a less orange, alternate US poster, and a new trailer arrives sometime tomorrow morning.
Here's the new poster for Christopher McQuarrie's Jack Reacher from Total Film:
And here's an alternate US poster that is less orange, but still pretty terrible (from Yahoo):
Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me. And sure enough, ex-military investigator Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) knows the killer is a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right–and soon the slam-dunk case explodes. Christopher McQuarrie (director The Way of the Gun and writer of The Usual Suspects) writers and directs this film which also stars Werner Herzog, Rosamund Pike and Richard Jenkins. Paramount Pictures is sending Jack Reacher to theaters on December 21st this year.
