Tom Cruise Returns in First Trailer for 'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back'
"We're on the run for this entire movie." Paramount has unveiled the first trailer for the sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, directed by Edward Zwick, bringing back Tom Cruise in the role of Jack Reacher, a character invented by author Lee Child. He's joined by actress Cobie Smulders, along with a cast including Robert Knepper, Aldis Hodge and Holt McCallany. I like the cold opening of this, with Reacher in the small diner talking back to some cops. From there it gets much more interesting, and for some reason I'm a bit more excited to see this sequel than I ever was the original. Maybe it's the way Zwick directs, as I almost always enjoy his films no matter what. Take a look below and let us know your thoughts.
(Update! We've now replaced the video above with the full trailer finally released online by Paramount.)
Jack Reacher returns to the headquarters of his old unit, only to find out he's now accused of a 16-year-old homicide. Never Go Back is the sequel to the adaptation of Jack Reacher (from 2012), and this film is directed by veteran American filmmaker Edward Zwick (of Glory, Legends of the Fall, Courage Under Fire, The Siege, The Last Samurai, Blood Diamond, Defiance, Love & Other Drugs and Pawn Sacrifice previously). The screenplay is written by Marshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick, from an earlier draft by Richard Wenk. Adapted from Lee Child's book of the same name about Reacher. Paramount will release this sequel, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, in theaters everywhere starting October 21st this fall. Interested?
