Trailer: Jack Reacher

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...

Trailer: Cave of Forgotten Dreams
