Japanese 'Jack Reacher' Trailer Takes Aim

Jack Reacher

"Jack Reacher" has been floating somewhat out in the ether of action movies. None of the trailers have really fleshed out the plot, which comes from Lee Child's ninth book about the military police officer turned super tough vigilante. Instead, they've mostly focused on how Tom Cruise, his plaid shirts, and his car.

Now a Japanese trailer of all things has finally enlightened us to the full scope of the story and the Werner Herzog at the center of it.

Check out the new "Jack Reacher" trailer after the jump!
