First trailer for Jack Reacher: watch now

Jack Reacher has released a first official trailer online, and it features Tom Cruise in what looks to be his coolest role in many a long year.

Opening on a terrified-looking man in a hospital bed, the trailer informs us that Jack Reacher (Cruise) is a, "kind of cop", but doesn't care about proof or the law, only what's right. Not a man to be trifled with, then.

It's a synopsis that Cruise himself backs up, stating plainly that, "I'm not a hero… and if you're smart, that scares you," before beating seven shades out a gang of thugs. Look out, total badass alert!

Take a look at the new trailer below…

Adapted from the Lee Child novel One Shot , Jack Reacher sees a mysterious sniper picking off a number of innocent citizens. When a suspect is brought in for questioning, his answers are restricted to a single note: "Get Jack Reacher!" And so, our hero is drafted in to see what he can find out…

Written and directed by Chris McQuarrie and co-starring Rosamund Pike, Robert Duvall, David Oyelowo and Werner Herzog (yes, really), Jack Reacher will open in the UK on 28 December 2012. Colour us officially excited!
