The last Jack Reacher trailer did enough to tell me just what the movie’s about — it’s not as though this has a plot that’s earth-shattering in terms of original content — but here we are, with a Japanese preview that gives things up a little more. Although it isn’t to some massive degree (you can only show so much in this phase), those with a keen interest, should you be out there, will have something new to pore over as the release date comes closer and closer.
Me, I think it looks like a suitable, if not entirely generic sort of Tom Cruise thriller — something I tend to enjoy in a passing sense. With Christopher McQuarrie both directing and adapting the well-liked Lee Child novel, One Shot, hopes should be a little higher than I can actually muster, but perhaps advance word will change things soon.
Watch the trailer below (via /Film):
Synopsis: When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: “Get Jack Reacher!” So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.
Also starring Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, David Oyelowo, Jai Courtney, Robert Duvall, and Werner Herzog, Jack Reacher arrives on December 21st.
How would you say this trailer differs from what’s come before? It for better or for worse?

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
