Jack Reacher Teaser Trailer is finally unleashed!

July 4th, 2012 by Marc 3 Comments
We are a bit late posting this, apologies folks… it got lost in the world of gaming news we had yesterday… better late than never, huh?
Tom Cruise is blazing a trail of chaos across the screen in this teaser trailer for Jack Reacher.
Some may say it’s a clever diversion for him due to the news of  divorce from Katie Holmes taking over the tabloids, whilst others may say that this role could define his future as he may be taking a back seat in the Mission: Impossble franchise.
Fans of the book have already been very vocal about their dislike in the casting of Tom Cruise in the title role as it is a contradiction to the size, shape and overall cold-heartedness character in the book.
However, with fast driving and dark humour, it remains to be seen if the fans have a point…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….

    I hate it, i love the Reacher novels and his size and build are an important part of him but to go with Cruise is a sell out on the authors part. I wont be going to see it in the cinema and just think its a horrible casting choice maybe one of the worst in years.

    We’re hearing that a lot Gonzo, I haven’t read them myself, but there’s not much love. Could it be a Lestat-type situation or is it a definate ‘no’ for all the fans? (Marc)

    A definite no – I think I read a blurb about Reacher caring for his car too? Reacher does not care for any personal possessions and literally carries around as little as he can – a folding toothbrush. He is man mountain who dishes out brutality to bad guys without any fancy martial arts. There was something about a police chase too? Reacher does his best to stay on the right side of the law at all times and cannot picture him in a police chase situation.

    Size wise? Maybe happy with Ron Pearlman sort of size – not too dissatified with the Cruise look but his size just isnt right and no Reacher doesn’t do humour
