Back in June, Paramount debuted the first full trailer for the bone-crunching action sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, arriving in theaters this October. With just over two months until this action sequel hits theaters, the studio has debuted a new TV spot and poster featuring Tom Cruise getting back in action. This former Military Police officer goes back to his roots, in what could be his deadliest mission ever.
The plot follows an Army major named Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders), who took over as a Military Police commander after Jack Reacher walked away from the armed forces. After Susan is accused of espionage, Jack springs back into action to help her, while dealing with his own personal issues. On top of all that, this Paramount sequel will have Jack being charged with a crime committed nearly 20 years ago, while revealing he may even have a daughter. Making things right will lead him on a cross-country chase to uncover the truth - and maybe even a family.
The new film is based on author Lee Child's 18th book in the bestselling Jack Reacher series, Never Go Back. The original movie Jack Reacher earned $80 million domestic and $218.3 million worldwide during its theatrical release. The Never Go Back book was published in 2013, just months after the release of the first Jack Reacher movie, with the first movie based on the 2005 book One Shot.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back also stars Danika Yarosh, Austin Hébert, Patrick Heusinger, Aldis Hodge and Holt McCallany. This sequel reunites Tom Cruise with Edward Zwick for the first time since they worked together on the 2003 drama The Last Samurai. The filmmaker worked from a script he co-wrote with longtime collaborator Marshall Herskovitz and Richard Wenk.
The action sequel will certainly have its work cut out for it this October, opening in the most crowded weekend of the year, with six new movies arriving in wide release. Also going up against Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is Lionsgate's Boo! A Madea Halloween, Pure Flix's drama I'm Not Ashamed, 20th Century Fox's comedy Keeping Up With the Jonses, Focus Features' A Monster Calls and Universal's horror sequel Ouija: Origin of Evil. Take a look at this new TV spot and poster, and stay tuned for more on Jack Reacher 2.
