Here's the latest trailer for Jack Reacher. Like the previous trailer, the film tries to turn the 5'7", 160ish-pound, brown-haired, green-eyed Tom Cruise into the 6'5", 230-pound, blond-haired, blue-eyed title character. He doesn't fit the mold of the Lee Child creation at all, but it looks like Cruise at least channels the deadliness from Michael Mann's Collateral.
This new Jack Reacher trailer also gives us our first look at Werner Herzog as the villain. (Though maybe he should have played big Jack?) Since I haven't read any of Child's books, I'm sort of hoping this movie climaxes in some kind of throwdown between Cruise and Herzog. This is also how I hope every movie ends, strangely enough.
Jack Reacher punches theaters in the groin on December 21st, 2012.
