I’ll be the first to say the 2012 Tom Cruise actioner, “Jack Reacher” was a pleasant surprise. So much so that I wouldn’t have minded a sequel. Well, Paramount Pictures has delivered that sequel with Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. In the first trailer (provided by Paramount Pictures), Reacher’s (Tom Cruise reprising) tough guy bravado is amplified 50-fold — he is quite literally beating multiple people to a pulp in almost every scene. The reason for his anger this time around is his former unit head Major Turner (Cobie Smulders) is being framed for espionage and he too is being setup to take the fall for a 20-year-old crime. Watch the action unfold in the embedded trailer and try not to be impressed that a 53-year-old Cruise is doing 98% of the what you see himself.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back stars Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Robert Knepper, Aldis Hodge, Danika Yarosh, Patrick Heusinger, Holt McCallany and Teri Wyble.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back follows the title character as he returns to Virginia to meet the head of his former unit. But she’s missing, he’s being charged with a crime committed nearly 20 years ago, and he may even have a daughter. Making things right will lead him on a cross-country chase to uncover the truth – and maybe even a family.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back infiltrates in US and UK theaters on October 21, 2016.
