The latest Jack Reacher trailer/ movie clip starring Tom Cruise contains a line that pretty much encapsulates this enigmatic character created by author Lee Child;
Obviously you don’t find this guy unless he wants to be found.
Fans of the book One Shot, which introduces film audiences to the Jack Reacher character, will recognize the truth of this line. Reacher’s an ex-military man. A troublemaker. Brilliant. And a drifter. He’s good at finding what he wants to find and according to the clip, good at hiding. The clip presents his bio in a series of back and forth statements by the character, Emerson, played by actor David Oyelowo, that are cut in with shots of Reacher, battle scars and all. The clips provide an interesting look at how the character became who person that fans of the Jack Reacher books know so well.
Despite the fact that actor Tom Cruise deviates from the physical description as the author wrote him, which describes Reacher as 6’5” with ice-blue eyes and dirty blond hair, Lee Child has proclaimed him “a fantastic Jack Reacher.” Audiences can see Cruise as Jack Reacher when Lee Child’s book-turned-movie will hit theaters in the U.S. on December 21, 2012.
