October 19th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Tom Cruise in passable action movie shocker?

Lee Child’s Jack Reacher isn’t exactly a natural fit for Tom Cruise, but none-the-less, star power has won out and Cruise IS Jack Reacher.

The first full trailer is below and we’re pretty unaffected by it… that said, the proof of the pudding and all that. But we are encouraged by Chrsitopher McQuarrie’s (Usual Suspects, Way of the Gun)involvement as screen writer.

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….
