UPDATE: We’ve now added the official English language version of the trailer
For those eager to see more than a billboard ad and a set photo for Christopher McQuarrie‘s upcoming thriller Jack Reacher, the wait is over. /Film has stumbled onto the first international trailer for the film, which stars Tom Cruise as investigator/badass Jack Reacher.
McQuarrie’s film, which will be adapted from Lee Child’s best selling novel One Shot, will focus on “a sniper who kills a handful of people in a midwestern American city, and while in police custody has only one request: “get me Jack Reacher.”
Werner Herzog will star as the film’s antagonist, known as The Zec, and he’ll be joined by Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall, Richard Jenkins and Michael Raymond-James.
The trailer is very car chase focused and carries a gritty and dark tone to it, with hints of Bourne-esque action as Tom Cruise brings his usual intensity and heroics to the role. Admittedly, it doesn’t look like anything extraordinary, but it seems like a competent action thriller that should provide enough excitement to make it worth seeing.
While not the best quality, it’s nice to actually get a glimpse of some footage from the film. From what we see here, it looks like McQuarrie will deliver a high intensity adventure that will be another great role for Mr. Cruise, who seems to be getting his career back on the right track.
Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think. Also, stay tuned as the official U.S. version will release on Tuesday.
