The fall season certainly comes with a promising slate of blockbusters, from Skyfall to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but two I’ve been most curious about are Jack Reacher and Life of Pi and today we’ve got new stills from both. For the former, Tom Cruise is following last year’s smash hit and franchise best Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol in a lead action role and wondering if he’ll find the same magic in a similar timeframe.
Paramount Pictures has released a new still, which one can see above, featuring our star alongside Robert Duvall, who stars as former U.S. Marine Samuel Cash in the film directed by Christopher McQuarrie. I’m personally still waiting for the Werner Herzog villain reveal, but one can also see the trailer here if you missed it.
Then we have four new stills from Ang Lee‘s Life of Pi thanks to the New York Film Festival, where the film was recently announced as their opening title. The images feature newcomer Suraj Sharma, which somewhat guides us through his journey as we see a storm, then him recovering supplies and then a blissful image as the sun sets. There’s also a behind-the-scenes look at our Brokeback Mountain director Ang Lee. Also starring Gérard Depardieu, Irrfan Khan and Tabu, see the images below from the film based on Yann Martel‘s hit novel.
Life of Pi premieres at New York Film Festival, then hits theaters November 21st, while Jack Reacher lands exactly a month later on December 21st.
