Later this year, we will get to see Tom Cruise beat people up as not Ethan Hunt, but rather Jack Reacher, the hero character in a slew of Lee Child novels, including One Shot, the book which writer/director Christopher McQuarrie‘s film, already infamously-titled Jack Reacher, is based.

There’s not too much to see here, aside from Cruise in the middle of some well-choreographed fight scenes. To be sure, overseas it seems this property will be sold almost solely on the movie star’s name.

Jack Reacher opens on December 21st.
