And now for something completely unrelated to his divorce and the house of Xenu…
Following the leak of a Russian trailer over the weekend, the official preview (above) for Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher has officially hit the web today.
Considering the recent demise of TomKat, it's probably the least inneresting news about the A-list actor that's floating around on the internet.
The trailer features lots of engine revving, fast driving, skull stomping and Cruise telling us that if we think he's a hero, we're wrong. If we're smart, that should scare us too.
Although it sounds more like a sequel to Drive, the Paramount movie is based off of a series of books by author Lee Child. The
hero main character is a former military police major who is basically a one-man A-Team; traveling around the country and helping people out by beating the crap out of others.
At the end of the day, "he only cares about what's right." Fans of the series aren't too sure that producers got the casting right since Jack Reacher is supposed to be six-foot-five
He proved that size doesn't matter in all of the Mission:Impossible movies, so we have full faith he can continue to kick butt under a different name. However, we don't have full faith that all of the nasty details emerging about his marriage with Katie Holmes won't hurt the public's interest in seeing this one.
That and it looks a lot like every other action movie ever made. Ha!
