Shortly after a Russian version of the trailer had slipped between the cracks, Paramount Pictures has finally released the official trailer for Jack Reacher. The action film, set to ignite screens this December 21st, is an adaptation of the Lee Child novel One Shot and stars Tom Cruise as the stoic and hard-boiled titular character. In the film, Jack Reacher (Cruise) is selected to hunt down a sniper thats been terrorizing his city and left five people dead. It is the first film adaptation of the highly acclaimed fifteen book series that caused controversy when pint-sized Tom Cruise was cast as the imposing 65 tall, near 250 pounds former military policemen now wandering loner.

Hey, honey, whats on at the local cinema? Well, theres Jack Reacher Whos that? Nobody. Its the name of the movie. Oh? Whats it about? No idea. You mean its just a name? Yep. Like John Carter? God, I hope not.
As a non-reader, I know nothing yet about this character and very much appreciate how this trailer obnoxiously plays on fact that its alsoif not nothing more thana Tom Cruise movie. In fact, this shows exactly how a Tom Cruise movie trailer should look like. Gritty action cuts without the actors face? Check. Rapid hand-to-hand combat without the actors face? Check. Cruises billion-dollar mug fades into view, eyes staring intensely right at you, like hes just seen the inside of your soul. Check. The final TOM CRUISE smash-cut, in case the previous images were just too vague? Oh yeah. This thing is practically art. Jack Reacher also stars Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall, and Werner Herzog and is directed by Christopher McQuarrie, whod worked with Cruise in 2008s Valkyrie.
