The Kidd here...
The trailer for Paramount's JACK REACHER, the Tom Cruise-fronted adaptation of Lee Child's ONE SHOT, has finally made its way online (courtesy of Yahoo!), and while there is plenty of engine revving to tease you on the flick, it's Cruise ass-beating ways that are a bit more effective.
It'll be interesting to see Cruise as sort of an anti-hero, a guy who does what is necessary to make things right even if it means doing a lot of wrong. Cruise, in the past, has been much more of a clean-cut good guy, so pulling that off will go a long way to silencing fans of the novel who have long complained about Cruise's casting not matching Reacher's large physical standing.
With WORLD WAR Z pulled from the calendar long ago and G.I. JOE 2 delayed, Paramount needs something going in its favor later this year, and JACK REACHER with the always intense Tom Cruise may just be what the doctor ordered.
