Default 'Jack Reacher' - Tom Cruise

Quote:
Here’s One Shot of Tom Cruise as ‘Jack Reacher’

Below is a new look at Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher, the title character of Christopher McQuarrie‘s upcoming Paramount film. It’s an old trick to say that Cruise just looks like Cruise here, because of course he does — that’s the whole point of hiring someone at his level of fame, especially to anchor an action thriller.

The film Jack Reacher adapts Lee Child‘s novel One Shot, in which the presence of itinerant former military policeman Jack Reacher is requested by a man accused of killing several people at random with a sniper rifle. The weird thing is: Reacher once arrested the same guy, a former serviceman, for another crime, and so he can’t figure out why the guy now seems to want his help. The film also features a supporting cast with some attention-getting names: Werner Herzog as the villain, and Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall, Richard Jenkins and Michael Raymond-James (so good in Terriers) in other roles.

Check out the first real image of Cruise as Reacher below.

EW has the photo, and also quotes McQuarrie talking about the film, first explaining why the one-time MP character is such a capable crimefighter:

Quote:
Someone asks him at one point in the story about the difference between a military policeman and a regular cop. Reacher points out that [for military police], every suspect is a trained killer.
He also explains Reacher’s general character:

Quote:
He is free from any sort of anxiety. He is truly not encumbered by all the bulls–t that makes up our daily lives… He literally and figuratively has no baggage. … He is an extremely pragmatic, matter-of-fact person. He’s very solitary, but he can’t walk away from a situation that needs to be made right. His own sense of right and wrong tie into that situation and he can’t leave until it’s been resolved. That’s his Achilles heel.
Paramount has enough confidence in Cruise and Jack Reacher to schedule the film for December 21, plainly hoping to duplicate some of the success found in that same timeframe last year with Cruise and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. Hopefully we’ll get a better idea of how Cruise works as the character, when the trailer hits soon.

It's just you. Not even close to a low budget film, and this is a book series that came before Jason Statham was on the scene.

The picture looks like it was taken from War of the worlds.

This could be really good.

Lee Child might not write great thrillers (at least not the couple I've ready anyway) but good thrillers (Dennis LeHayne, Harlen Coben, Michael Connelly) can make awfully fun movies (Gone Baby Gone, Tell No One, The Lincoln Lawyer).

One Shot is being called Jack Reacher, Cross is being called Alex Cross, A Princess of Mars was called John Carter, the next Jack Ryan movie will probably be called Jack Ryan, there's already Bourne... they're all going to meet in their own literary Avengers movie!!!

For what it's worth, the word on this is very good. Studio people are excited in a way they usually aren't.

Eh, I know. But it kinda gives you an idea of what the movie might look like. Although, I'm pretty sure it won't have that rustic hue the whole movie. I thought that was kinda odd...

Pretty sure this one was going to have an R rating.

Big fan of Lee Child and the Reacher novels, so I've been cautious about a movie for some time now. Not crazy about the idea of Cruise playing Reacher, but if he can bring to it the same cold, calculating kind of performance that he gave in Collateral, then I can see it working.

It's not a *great* trailer, but that isn't too say the movie itself looks bad. I just think that the footage they chose looks kinda awkward at times. I do like the kind of dirty '70s crime/action thriller look they're going for.

Yea, the "360p" trailer leaves a Bit to be desired

It does look like a similar portrayal character wise ("Collateral"), but we'll have a better idea when we get a U.S. trailer, whether it's the same one or slightly different.
