THE MOVIE: Actor Tom Cruise drew plenty of criticism when he was cast as Jack Reacher, the popular character created by novelist Lee Child. Reacher is known for being a 6’5″ brute of a man, an ex-soldier who could physically dominate any opponent.
While Cruise is no stranger to action thanks to the Mission: Impossible series, many Lee Child fans balked at the casting of Cruise due to his pint-sized stature – enough to start a Facebook group called “Tom Cruise is not Jack Reacher.”
However, the proof, as they say, is in the movie. Jack Reacher won’t see a theatrical release until February 7, 2013, but in the meantime we have a new Russian trailer courtesy of Twitch Film. The American trailer should debut online any day now. The film certainly looks action-packed.
