Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media debuted the first trailer for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back during the June 14 episode of Entertainment Tonight. The trailer was introduced by Cruise’s co-star in the film, How I Met Your Mother and The Avengers actress Cobie Smulders.
Directed by Edward Zwick (The Last Samurai, Blood Diamond), Jack Reacher: Never Go Back brings back Cruise as the titular former investigator for the Military Police and hero of the popular series of novels by author Lee Child. His latest adventure gets him tangled up with the Military Police once again when the officer who replaced him in the division (Smulders) is arrested for espionage.
The film is based on Child’s 2013 novel Never Go Back, and features a script by Zwick, The Expendables 2 and The Equalizer screenwriter Richard Wenk, and Love & Other Drugs and The Last Samurai screenwriter Marshall Herskovitz.
Along with Cruise and Smulders, the film’s cast includes Danika Yarosh (Shameless), Austin Hebert (Bonnie and Clyde), Patrick Heusinger (Quantum Break), Aldis Hodge (Straight Outta Compton), Robert Knepper (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay), and Holt McCallany (Blue Bloods).
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is scheduled to hit theaters October 21.
