Tom Cruise Gets Plenty of Action in Japanese 'Jack Reacher' Trailer

December 4, 2012

Jack Reacher

It's worth it just to hear the voiceover saying Jack Reacher. Later this month Tom Cruise gets back into full action mode for the holidays again. Last Christmas he took on Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol and this summer he sang his heart out in Rock of Ages. Now he's playing a bit of an anti-hero as the title character who doesn't care about the law. There's a lot more action in this new Japanese trailer, and it gives us a little bit more of the story as well. There's plenty of new footage, and if Christopher McQuarrie landing Mission: Impossible 5 is any indicator, this could be a fun romp in theaters in a few weeks. Watch!

Here's the Japanese trailer for Christopher McQuarrie's Jack Reacher via SlashFilm:

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.

    Lets not forget Tom Cruise, the abuser/criminal, involved in human trafficking and violated many people's human rights close to him as it was describe in the 2012 Oct Vanity Fair issue. Are we blind to what Tom does behind the closed door, his personal life to the closest people to himself with the help of his cult leader David Miscavige. Do we care about those who are abused by Tom and his buddy David Miscavige? Did you know that those money we spend to see his movies helps his cult to abuse its innocent parishioner? Don't you care about other beings?

    • For all I know you could be a rapist pedophile. I pay my money to see him act, which he is damn good at.
      • sree
        i agree with u
      • You think Tom Cruise is a good actor? You MUST be a child rapist to be that stupid and crazy. You should consider castrating yourself, for the good of the kids.

    • Cry more kid. I could say he's a fucking alien and it wouldn't matter. Lol.
    • I just want a shot in a spaceship. Scientology rules!

    The Japanese name for this movie is called "OUTLAW" not "Jack Reacher" like its names here.

  • They should have left the name of this film "One Shot".

      I kinda thought the same thing...

    Scared sh*tless voice: "There's this guy... He doesn't care about proof. He doesn't care about the law. You can't protect me. No one can" And then it shows a close-up of Tom Cruise. (First Jack Reacher trailer) Somehow, that feels like an anti-climax to me. Sure, I like Cruise as an action-star. I even liked his surprisingly good performance as an ice-cold killer in Collateral. But somehow he didn't use his career to establish as a convincing bas-ass. On the other hand, this Jack Reacher stuff looks kinda different than his usual drill. So I am gonna see this.
    • Because you are stupid. And when it sucks, you will only be surprised it sucks because you are stupid.

    Cruise is laughable as Reacher but I am certain they will love it in Asia............
  • I doubt even the gayest man in America wants to suck enough corporate dick to promote this movie to maintain your insider status with Hollywood. This movie is going to suck and you know it. You really should consider a new line of work if your job makes you kiss Tom Cruise's tiny little ass.
