New Image from JACK REACHER Starring Tom Cruise and Robert Duvall

     August 21, 2012


A new image from Jack Reacher has gone online.  Based off the Lee Child novel One Shot, the Christopher McQuarrie-directed film stars Tom Cruise as the eponymous ex-military investigator who’s is tasked with tracking down a serial sniper.  I haven’t read One Shot, and I don’t know how much McQuarrie’s film differs from the book, so someone will have to tell me if Duvall’s character only has one eye or if this image just catches him in mid-wink.  As we reported last September, Duvall has a small but pivotal role which is significant to Reacher’s investigation.

Hit the jump to check out the full image.  The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, David Oyelowo, and Werner HerzogJack Reacher opens December 21st.


Here’s the official synopsis for Jack Reacher:

When a gunman takes five lives with six shots, all evidence points to the suspect in custody. On interrogation, the suspect offers up a single note: “Get Jack Reacher!” So begins an extraordinary chase for the truth, pitting Jack Reacher against an unexpected enemy, with a skill for violence and a secret to keep.

    Duvall’s character only has one eye because the other is actually a magical crystal ball sent here by Xenu to help Tom in all of his troubles, no matter how trivial they may seem. This scene, if I remember the book correctly, takes place after Tom and Duvall take the form of unicorns to sneak onto a military installation run by mermaids and werewolves, and in this installation they hold the most powerful weapon on the planet: The yellow tellitubby. I wont spoil the rest, but I will tell that the final fight between Tom and Snuffaluffagus is incredible amd should translate well to the big screen.

      Duvall looks to be playing an ex military sharpshooter that runs a shooting range. Reacher recruits him for the climax of the book.

  • Person

    He doesn’t have one eye, they’re spying on the villain’s house towards the end of the book / movie (at least that’s what it looks like).

  • Zswick

    Robert Duvall was born in his 70′s.

  • Sam

    It looks like its a screenshot from near the end of the book/movie. They’re scoping out the villian’s house before Jack Reacher raids it and kicks ass. So pumped to see this!
