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.
