Tom Cruise goes badass in exclusive new Jack Reacher poster

Exclusive first look at the new one-sheet

 

 

Jack Reacher, the eagerly-awaited action thriller starring Tom Cruise as Lee Child’s indomitable tough guy, has unveiled a new poster, and you can get an exclusive first look right here.

Looking every inch the badass, this poster should go some way to dispelling certain fans’ fears that Cruise wouldn’t be right for the role. C'mon, he looks awesome! It's all in the eyes. And the fist.

The film’s adapted from Child’s novel, One Shot, and follows the taciturn, no-nonsense ex-military policeman as he sets about unravelling the mystery of a trained sniper who has taken out five victims, seemingly at random.

Directed by Christopher McQuarrie, Jack Reacher could be a throwback to the kind of muscular thriller that’s been seen all-too-rarely since its ‘80s heyday, especially if the 'Tom Cruise is...' tagline is anything to go by. And with 17 novels in the Child's series to date, we could be in for a franchise.

Check out the poster in full, below:

Jack Reacher co-stars Rosamund Pike, Richard Jenkins, Jai Courtney and Werner Herzog. It opens in the UK on 26 December 2012 (after opening in the US on 21 December).

      I hope this flops badly. A franchise? Please no, not with this egotistical pratt in the role. Even if you've only read one JR novel you will know this does not feel right. LC sold out and let everyone down with this decision. This will please the midgets fans but not the millions of hardcore fans of the books.

      How do these Photoshop abominations actually get released? Once glance is enough to see the head looks like it's gonna explode. I know Tom Cruise is quite a bit smaller than the Jack Reacher in the books, but Jesus, if you're gonna make him bigger at least make all of him bigger!

      I usually laugh when the fanboys go ape about the casting of characters but having read 12 JR books in quick succession, I am now one of the JR fanboys and think there's is a snowballs chance in hell Tom Cruise will pull this off. I wish Lee Child had more artistic integrity when he decides to sell the movie rights
