Just last week, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media debuted the trailer for their new sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The first look footage arrived as an exclusive for Entertainment Tonight, and had several key scenes missing. Now, the studio has finally premiered the full-length uncut trailer, which brings Tom Cruise back in all of his action-packed glory!
Jack Reacher 2 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. All hell breaks loose as Jack and Susan team-up. Soon, they are on the run, and stay that way for the duration of this action drama. The story is based on author Lee Child's 18th book in the bestselling Jack Reacher series, also titled Never Go Back.
Best known for The Last Samurai and Blood Diamond, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is directed by Edward Zwick. The sequel is written by Richard Wenk based on characters and story ideas created by Lee Child, along with contributing writers Marshall Herskovitz (Love & Other Drugs, The Last Samurai) & Zwick. The cast is rounded out by Danika Yarosh (Heroes Reborn, Shameless), Austin Hebert (Bonnie and Clyde), Patrick Heusinger (Quantum Break, Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce), Aldis Hodge (Straight Outta Compton, A Good Day to Die Hard), Robert Knepper (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Prison Break) and Holt McCallany (Blue Bloods, Gangster Squad).
