Last week, Entertainment Weekly had the first look at the Jack Reacher: Never Go Back trailer. It was, essentially, the first trailer, but it was sullied with all this nonsense EW production value.
Well, here’s the official first Jack Reacher: Never Go Back trailer, and it’s clean and a little more detailed:
And the quick synopsis says “Jack Reacher returns to the headquarters of his old unit, only to find out he’s now accused of a 16-year-old homicide.” This is the same premise of the Lee Child novel.
It’ll be interesting to see how Edward Zwick handles straight action. He’s taking over for a busy Chris McQuarrie, and he’s a more than competent filmmaker. But his filmography tends to skew more historical drama, things like The Last Samurai, Legends of The Fall, and Blood Diamond. But those films did have their fair share of action, so this shouldn’t be too tall of a task.
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back hits theaters October 21.
