New Jack Reacher 2 Trailer: Tom Cruise Is Not Messing Around

"I'm the guy you didn't count on."


Tom Cruise returns for the action sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, and a new trailer has landed. The movie sees the super-tough ex-military cop dealing with a web of corruption in the way he knows best--with lots of shooting and hitting. Check the trailer out below:

The film is directed by Edward Zwick, who previously worked with Cruise on 2003's The Last Samurai, and also features Avengers star Cobie Smulders. It is based on the 18th of Lee Child's bestselling novels, 2013's Never Go Back. To date, there have been 20 Reacher novels.

While 2012's Jack Reacher wasn't as successful as Cruise's other big action franchise--the Mission: Impossible movies--it did well enough to merit a sequel. A first trailer was released in June--check it out here.

In an interview with Joblo last year, Zwick explained that he wouldn't simply be copying the formula of the first film. "It's going to be a very different movie than the last one," he said. "Because there is a nice sort of anthology possibility to a continuing character like that, it's a whole different world--a different set of circumstances that he finds himself in. So it will be a different movie and I hope a standalone movie."

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back hits theaters on October 21, 2016.
