There wasn't a ton of clamor for a sequel to Jack Reacher, and the box office really didn't call for it, but when Tom Cruise wants something he gets it. Mission: Impossible is where he gets to pull dangerous stunts that show he's still young at heart, but it's in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back where he gets to kick the most butt and beat up people twice his size.
A new trailer and IMAX poster for the action flick has been released, and this time Reacher, the badass military vigilante from author Lee Child's popular books, must stop a conspiracy with ties to his past. Oh, and Cobie Smulders gets swept up in it, too. Here's the synopsis:
Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise) returns with his particular brand of justice in the highly anticipated sequel JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK. When Army Major Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders), who heads Reacher’s old investigative unit, is arrested for Treason, Reacher will stop at nothing to prove her innocence and to uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy involving soldiers who are being killed. Based upon JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK, author Lee Child’s 18th novel in the best-selling Jack Reacher series, that has seen 100 million books sold worldwide.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back opens October 21st, directed by Ed Zwick.
