Tom Cruise gets fighty again in first trailer for the Jack Reacher sequel

Tom Cruise gets fighty again in first trailer for the Jack Reacher sequel

Playing 6ft 5in Jack Reacher was always going to be something of a tall order for 5ft 7in Tom Cruise.

And yet, despite initial concern from fans of the Lee Child series over his casting, 2012’s film adaptation was a resounding success. Or at least it was if you take into account it’s yielded a sequel: Never Go Back.

Patently ignoring this advice in more ways than one, Cruise’s military man-turned-PI goes back to Washington, where an old friend has been “set up” and needs his help. Cue conspiratorial plotlines, an unholy amount of fight scenes, and even some Bryan Mills-esque phone threats from our man:

“You should start running. Because I’m going to start hunting, and when I find you I’m gonna kill you all.”

Let's pray he didn't get a wrong number.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is in UK cinemas from 21 October
