Tom Cruise Gets Tough in the First Trailer for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

"Maybe I'll rip your arm off."


Despite the popularity of the Mission: Impossible movies, it seems that one successful action franchise isn't enough for Tom Cruise. Following 2012's Jack Reacher, the star will return as the super-tough ex-military cop for a second dose of thrills in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back. The first full trailer has been released--check it 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.

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.
