Yahoo! Movies has premiered the first theatrical trailer for Jack Reacher, Christopher McQuarrie’s adaptation of Lee Child’s 2005 crime novel One Shot, starring Tom Cruise in the title role.
The character, who’s appeared in some 17 books to date, is a stoic military police officer turned drifter with a knack for hand-to-hand combat, a knowledge of weaponry, and an apparent lack of “the remorse gene.”
When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: “Get Jack Reacher!” So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.
The film, which opens Dec. 21, also stars Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall, Werner Herzog and Richard Jenkins.
