Watch Tom Cruise In The First Official Jack Reacher Trailer

After a Russian version leaked out a few days ago, we now have the first official trailer for the upcoming Tom Cruise action film, Jack Reacher. Written and directed by Christopher McQuarrie, the film also stars Werner Herzog, Rosamund Pike and Richard Jenkins.

Admittedly, the trailer isn’t anything too special as it really doesn’t show off a whole lot. The only cast member that we get a good look at is Cruise and even then, we don’t see much of him.

What is shown here though does look promising. Mr. Cruise seems to be following in the footsteps of Liam Neeson by trying to re-establish himself as a bonafide action star, despite his age.

Of course, Cruise was a huge action star in his younger years but as he got older, he started to fizzle out a bit. After Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol though, he’s back and better than ever.

If you don’t believe me, then check out the Jack Reacher trailer below and watch Cruise kick some ass. While the film does look a bit generic, I think it will still provide some exciting, if not mindless, entertainment.

Jack Reacher will hit theatres on December 21st, 2012.
