Jack Reacher: Never Go Back Trailer

"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.

Here's the first official trailer for Edward Zwick's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, on YouTube (via TFS):

(Update! We've now replaced the video above with the full trailer finally released online by Paramount.)

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

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?

Wow ET really sucks. Why don't they just show the trailer rather than cutting it up with clips of interviews? Look forward to seeing the actual trailer.

Yeah I know, hate them... Hate that movie studios allow this to be the first way most people see a trailer. Just awful. Patiently waiting for the official trailer drop, and will update it as soon as it's out.

Alex Billington on Jun 15, 2016


Yeah it is surprising that the studios would want people to get their first look like that.

David Diaz on Jun 16, 2016


I'm surprised ET still exists, with everyone having internet access 24/7 in their homes....

How incompetent is the whole of the armed forces? These rogue super trained lone wolf mavericks just seem to escape every time. Can't really watch Tom Cruise any more.

You were talking about London has fallen (very low in my esteem), right?

tarek on Jun 15, 2016


I watched the first comedy part of that series, but couldn't go near the second. Did Gerald Butler punch a whole SAS squad into a parallel dimension? 🙂

Carpola on Jun 15, 2016


You can't even imagine how dumb this movie is, until you see it, and waste a precious time of yours. Which I don't recommend.

tarek on Jun 15, 2016


He he he. I can only imagine it's truly visual brutality.

Carpola on Jun 15, 2016


Mcquarrie NAILED the first one. I'm sad he isn't back but I do have a soft spot for Last Samurai. So Zwick and Cruise is a good combo.

Jon Odishaw on Jun 15, 2016


The Last Samurai was a damn solid flick. I don't get the shit talk I keep seeing. Watanabe was boss!

Never Reach Back would have been a better title....

TheOct8pus on Jun 15, 2016


Jack Reacharound could have been a good one too.

Werner Herzog as the villain in the first Reacher was the best thing abou that movie. Cruise is alright...hope my face ages like his some day.

RAW_D on Jun 15, 2016


So it's not the straight injections of Scientology?

RAW_D on Jun 16, 2016


From the team who brought you THE LAST SAMURAI, comes JACK REACHER 2... ... ...

DAVIDPD on Jun 15, 2016


As someone already said, sooner or later I'll catch it somewhere while not having any other watching options...

Shittiest dad of the year award? Apparently Tom (In love with himself) Cruise has not seen his daughter for 3 years now because his demonic church wont let him? What an asshole.

SDC on Jun 16, 2016


Never go back to the theater

I lost interest with the KNOCK KNOCK.

Brian Ricci on Jun 22, 2016


Cool. Reminds me of the beginning of the trailer for the first one when the baddie was recounting his experience with Reacher.

DAVIDPD on Jun 22, 2016


So you should start running. Cause I'm gonna start hunting. And when I find you...I'm gonna kill you all. Compare that to: If you let my daugther go now that'll be the end of it. But if you don't, I will look for you. And I will find you. And then I'll kill you. Same speechwriter?

Big fan of the books also and Child was actually a big part of the casting for the movie. I get why he picked Tom. I enjoyed the first. There isn't too many 6'5 buff actors who have the acting chops.

TK on Jun 22, 2016


He has written a lot since he got to hollywood. Cruise and Paramount got the rights to them in 2005. There have been 3 books since the movie came out and I've enjoyed them. I loved Never Go Back and that's why I am looking forward to this. Personal won the RBA prize for Crime writing. You should watch the conversation he had with Stephen King at Cambridge when he was on Tour for Make Me. Child is quite possibly putting out his best work now. Apart from giving Tom his blessing he pretty much stepped away and had nothing really to do with the end movie. He said he enjoyed it and in one interview he said that the 2 worlds will exist parallel to each other. The books can't go the same direction as the movie and should never be influenced by it because the two medias are interpreted differently. So far it seems like the movie hasn't really affected how the Jack Reacher books have continued.

TK on Jun 24, 2016


The entire thing started as a joke so I can see why he wanted to make it as popular and far reaching as possible. Each to his own I guess we can agree to disagree. I liked the first movie so hopefully this will be the same.

TK on Jun 24, 2016


Jack Reacher plays Jason Bourne.

maytheforce on Jun 23, 2016


well said, it bothered me too!

ari smulders on Jun 23, 2016


First this looks awesome, no doubt, but still jack reacher should be a marine of 1.90 with a neck of steel. I will certainly watch this, looks a great trip, and Tom Cruise is the only real action movie. You can say allot of this guy, but big balls he has...

ari smulders on Jun 23, 2016


Sometimes, during long summer nights, this will be fine and non demanding treat. Starting from the next summer ...

shiboleth on Jun 23, 2016


I've read just the first 3 books so far and I see your point but I think Cruise still manages to pull it off somewhat. I emphasize "somewhat". I did enjoy the first film enough that I will be seeing this one.

LightningB on Jun 24, 2016


The books are a fun , light read. Cruise isn't 6'5" but he does a good job of capturing the Reacher attitude !
