Why do the Japanese always get the good trailers? Here's an action-packed trailer for Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher that features a lot of great new footage from the film, and gives us a little more insight to the story. This is the best trailer I've seen, and it doesn't hurt that the voiceover guy has a badass voice.
The film is based on the ninth book in the Jack Reacher series written by Lee Child called One Shot. The film was directed by Christopher McQuarrie (The Way of the Gun, writer of The Usual Suspects), and also stars Robert Duvall, Rosamund Pike, Jai Courtney and Werner Herzog.
The film hits theaters on December 21st 2012. I'm already sold on the film, it looks like it's going to be a solidly fun action movie.
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.
