Even though it’s in Japanese, this new trailer for Jack Reacher shows off more plot than any of the previous trailers combined. Plus, it’s not exactly light on action either. Director Christopher McQuarrie’s adaptation of Lee Child’s novel stars Tom Cruise as the titular character, a man who exists outside the law and exacts his own brand of ruthless justice. Also starring Werner Herzog, Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Robert Duvall, Jai Courtney and David Oyelowo, Jack Reacher opens December 21st. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer and finally understand what it’s all about.
