Tom Cruise Kicks Ass In First Footage From ‘Jack Reacher Never Go Back’

Jack Reacher NGB First FootageFollowing the release of a few images from the film last week, Entertainment Tonight has just debuted the very first footage from the Edward Zick directed Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. While it’s not a conventional teaser trailer for the film, we do get our first look at the sequel featuring commentary from co-star Cobie Smulders introducing her character.

As a huge fan of the first film myself, I definitely cannot wait to see this one when it hits theaters later this year. Here’s hoping that we get an official teaser trailer sometime this week. Check out the footage below and let us know what you think in the comments section afterwards.

Directed by Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai, Blood Diamond), Jack Reacher: Never Go Back sees the return of Tom Cruise as the title character. Based on author Lee Child’s 18th book in the bestselling Jack Reacher series, “Never Go Back,” the film is written by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2, The Equalizer), Marshall Herskovitz (Love & Other Drugs, The Last Samurai) & Zwick.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back also stars Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother, Avengers: Age of Ultron), Danika Yarosh (Heroes Reborn, Shameless), Austin Hebert (Bonnie and Clyde), Patrick Heusinger (Quantum Break, Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce), Aldis Hodge (Straight Outta Compton, A Good Day to Die Hard), Robert Knepper (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Prison Break) and Holt McCallany (Blue Bloods, Gangster Squad).

Cruise himself is also producing alongside Don Granger (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Jack Reacher), Skydance Media’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Geostorm), and Christopher McQuarrie (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Valkyrie). The executive producers are Paula Wagner (War of the Worlds, The Others) and Herb Gains (The Judge, Non-Stop).

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is scheduled to hit theaters on October 21, 2016.
