The Jack Reacher 2 trailer is released! Tom Cruise returns as the titular army officer-turned-drifter in Jack Reacher 2, the sequel to the 2012?s successful Jack Reacher which has now been titled Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media officially debuted the first teaser trailer for the latest flick based on Lee Child’s book series and it is quite thrilling and full of action sequences as Cruise reprises his role as the badass military police officer. Based on the book, Never Go Back, Jack Reacher 2 will have our titular character return to Virginia, where he once served as a military investigator and head of the Military Police.
In the new trailer for the sequel, Reacher heads back to his old military unit to meet the new boss, a woman named Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders), who was picked to take over his position as head of the MP. But unfortunately for him, before he could meet her, she is arrested under charges of espionage.
Reacher being Reacher deduces that things seem pretty fishy and he breaks Turner out of custody and the two go on the run from the Law, hoping to clear her name and uncover the truth. In his pursuit of the truth, he faces corrupt officials which lead to some action on the part of Reacher and some great dialogue, ?You think you?re above the law. But I?m not the law so you should start running ?cause I?m gonna start hunting.?
Also, Jack Reacher 2 will reveal several secrets about Jack?s past and amongst them the reason why Reacher himself chose to leave his position and become the badass drifter he is today. He is even charged with a crime committed nearly 20 years ago, and there’s also a possibility that he might have a daughter he didn’t know about.
