‘Jack Reacher’ is Tom Cruise’s new movie, based on the hero of 18 books written by Lee Child. In the books, Jack Reacher is six-foot-five, and Tommy boy barely stands five-foot-six.
Just days after Katie Holmes announced she wants out of her marriage with Tom, the trailer for ‘Jack Reacher’ is released. The film stars Cruise as Reacher, a former military police officer investigating the case of a military-trained sniper.
Of course, whether audiences will buy into the film after Cruise’s latest press stumble remains to be seen.
“Tom is a huge movie star for the right reason: He’s a very talented actor whose movies have entertained millions of fans,” Paramount said in a statement to the New York Times. “[His] ability to make a great movie [is what] moviegoers remember above all else.” In that regard, Cruise struck out with “Rock of Ages,” but hit gold with “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol.” That film, also released by Paramount, grossed $693 million worldwide after its release in Dec. 16, 2011.
Perhaps not coincidentally, “Jack Reacher” arrives in theaters on Dec. 21, 2012.
I think this is a horrible trailer. It doesn’t leave me feeling that I need to see the movie. It kind of left me feeling the same way after I watch Madonna perform on stage. Might be past his prime for these kinds of action movies (the last ‘Mission Impossible’ was pushing it). Who’s with me!
